Menopause: A Natural Phenomenon:

Menopause is the last menstrual period to be exact. Women in general think that menopause think of it as a time span that leads up to it and after their last period. In actuality, periods don’t tend to just stop, they become less, and gradually after several years menopause finally happens.
Women are said to have gone through menopause when they have not have had a period at all for one year. A natural menopause occurs when women get older and ovaries stop producing eggs and make less oestrogen (the main female hormone). The average age for menopause is 51, and it’s premature if it occurs before the age of 40. Radiotherapy, ovaries removal by surgery, chemotherapy drugs, hysterectomy and inheritance are some of the causes for early menopause.

Menopause is a natural process, and not an illness. However, this does have side effects that tend to appear after menopause. Temporarily, women after menopause experience night sweats, hot flashes, disturbed sleep patterns, hair loss, mood swings. On the other hand, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, obesity, depression, urinary incontinence are some of the chronic complications.

Plenty of exercises, cutting off spicy food, quitting smoking, sleeping properly, avoiding stressful situations and staying calm can help in fighting these side effects.
