What is menopause?

Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation in women, which occurs on average around age 51 but may occur as early as 40 and as late as 55 years old or even later. Six to twelve months without a menstrual period is the commonly accepted rule for diagnosing menopause. The time prior to menopause is referred to as perimenopause, and the time after menopause is referred to as postmenopause. During perimenopause, many women ovulate irregularly, owing to either decreased secretion of estrogen or resistance of the remaining follicles to ovulatory stimulus.

The most common complaints of menopause are hot flashes, migraines, atrophic vaginitis, frequent urinary tract infections, cold hands and feet, fatigue, and finally inability to concentrate.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes are the most common symptom of menopause. The term hot flash refers to dilation of the peripheral blood vessels, which leads to a rise in skin temperature and flushing of the skin. In the typical hot flash, the skin (especially of the head and neck) becomes red and warm for a few seconds to a few minutes, with cold chills coming thereafter.

65 to 80% of women around menopause experience hot flashes to some degree. Hot flashes are often the first sign that menopause is approaching, as they may begin prior to the cessation of menses. In most cases, hot flashes are at their most uncomfortable in the first and second years after menopause.

Migraines

Migraines often accompany menopause owing to increased instability of the blood vessels. Migraines often occurs at the same time as hot flashes.

Atrophic Vaginitis

After menopause, the vaginal lining may become thin and dry due to the lack of estrogen. As a result, menopausal and postmenopausal women may experience painful intercourse, an increased susceptibility to infection, and vaginal itching or burning.

Women with atrophic vaginitis should try to avoid substances that tend to dry the mucous membranes, including alcohol, caffeine, and diuretics.

Supplements for menopause and their uses

Omega 3 (for hot flashes)

A study made on Omega 3 supplementation during menopause has demonstrated significative reduction of hot flashes in women taking Omega 3 supplement. The dosage was 1200mg EPA+DHA. It is interesting to note that if fish oil may reduce their frequency, the severity of hot flashes is not reduced.

Calcium (for bones)

Calcium supplementation is advisable, because as the production of estrogen decreases, the bones may become more brittle, leading to osteoporosis. This affects many post-menopausal women, whose bones become fragile and fracture easily. See the page related to supplements for osteoporosis for more information.

Magnesium (for irritability)

Magnesium is known as he relaxant mineral It helps relax your body and will help you if you have problems to find sleep.
