Understanding Menopause: A Journey of Changes

Menopause, typically occurring in a woman's late 40s to early 50s, marks the end of her menstrual cycles. This transition is characterized by a decrease in estrogen and progesterone production, leading to a range of symptoms that can vary in severity and duration. 

Common Symptoms of Menopause: 

  • Hot Flashes: Sudden feelings of warmth, often accompanied by sweating and a rapid heartbeat. 

  • Night Sweats: Similar to hot flashes but occurring during sleep, leading to disrupted rest. 

  • Mood Swings: Fluctuations in mood, from irritability to sadness or anxiety. 

  • Vaginal Dryness: Resulting from decreased estrogen, leading to discomfort during intercourse. 

  • Sleep Disturbances: Difficulty falling or staying asleep, often due to night sweats or hormonal changes.
