Menopause Treatment Cambridge
The menopause is the name given to the end of menstruation (periods). It is also sometimes referred to colloquially as 'the change of life' or just 'the change'. In the UK, the average age for a woman to start going through the menopause is 52.
The menopause involves the end of egg production (ovulation), which occurs as a result of falling levels of the female sex hormone, oestrogen, which regulates menstruation.
A woman is said to have reached the menopause once she has not had a period for one year. After this point, she can be described as post-menopausal. The length of time leading up to the menopause is known as the peri-menopause stage.
During the peri-menopause, the hormonal and biological changes that are associated with the menopause begin. As a result of these hormonal changes, many women experience both physical and emotional symptoms.
If the menopause occurs in a woman who is under 45 years of age, it is known as a premature menopause. It is estimated that premature menopause affects approximately 1% of women under the age of 40 and 0.1% of women who are under the age of 30.
Most women reach the menopause without seeking medical advice. However, treatments are available that can ease menopausal symptoms, which can be severe or distressing.
