Menopause Q & A

What is menopause?

Menopause means your period has completely stopped as a result of age-related hormonal changes. The time leading up to menopause is called perimenopause, although it is sometimes erroneously referred to as menopause. In most women, menopause occurs in their 50s, but it can occur earlier or later. Perimenopause can be very brief or symptoms may occur for several years before the menstrual cycle comes to a complete halt.

What are the symptoms of perimenopause?

Symptoms can vary from one person to another, and can include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular or heavy periods, headaches, fatigue, mood swings or irritability, problems sleeping, and muscle aches and pain. Some women have very few symptoms while for others, the symptoms can be so significant, they can have an effect on a person’s quality of life.

How can I tell if I’ve reached menopause?

Menopause is considered to have occurred when you have 12 consecutive months without a period. However, menopause is not the only cause of abnormal periods; if you’ve begun experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause including irregular or heavy periods, you should have an evaluation to rule out other potential causes, including tumors and hormone-related diseases and conditions.

How can menopause be treated?

Menopause is a natural, age-related change and cannot be “treated.” However, there are treatments that can help with specific symptoms, such as fatigue, moodiness or hot flashes. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is one of the most popular forms of treatment for women approaching menopause and during menopause. Hormones play an important role in all sorts of processes that help women stay healthy. HRT works by replacing the hormones that have declined during perimenopause so women can resolve many of the symptoms of perimenopause and help restore the body’s normal function.
