Menopause occurs when a woman stops ovulating and her period’s cycle ceases. Most women reach menopause between 45 and 55 years with an average age around 50 years. But according to a research study, about 1% of women reach it before 40 years of age which is known as premature menopause or premature ovarian failure. For women in their teenage, the loss of their fertility at the age of 20’s is devastating. They will also experience a long period of postmenopausal life and hormonal replacement therapy may be advised. Listed below are some basic symptoms of menopause.

  1. Menstrual cycle changes
  2. Changes in the bleeding pattern
  3. Hot flushes
  4. Sweats
  5. Urinary problems such as incontinence or increased frequency of urination
  6. Dry vagina
  7. Mood changes
  8. Weight changes etc.

Prevention: We can prevent early Menopause by preventing unwanted surgeries of the uterus or the ovaries unless there is strong indication for their removal. Such Surgeries can lead to autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and thyroid disorders. Conserving even a single ovary may help in preventing the onset menopause.

Women in urban areas have access to information or counseling but unfortunately the women in rural areas of Asia have no such knowledge. The good news for those who would like to rule out doubts about the onset of menopause will soon be available in the form of LH Kits (Leutinizing hormone) to check their ovulation especially used with infertility patients. While stress cannot be over emphasized as it has a role in temporary or prolonged cessation of periods.

Treatment: Normally, early menopause is also treated in a similar way as menopause itself through HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), life style changes, calcium and good nutrition. But for HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), it must be keep in mind that an extensive study shows that HRT is not a protection against heart diseases as was believed before and in fact not quite the “happy pill” that women had thought is given up to the age of menopause.
