Signs of Menopause

Menopause is a time in a woman’s life that can be categorised into three stages:

  1. Perimenopause
  2. Menopause, and
  3. Postmenopause

Menopause is when a woman’s body begins to produce less oestrogen, and eventually will result in the cessation of periods. Menopause does have some uncomfortable symptoms, including:

  • Hot flushes
  • Nausea
  • Memory difficulties
  • Mood swings
  • Sleep disruption or insomnia
  • Urinary incontinence

There are a number of ways to manage the symptoms of menopause, the first being to make lifestyle changes. Some women will find that reducing stress by taking regular breaks while working, practicing yoga or meditation, or getting regular massages, will improve symptoms of menopause, especially hot flashes and sleep issues. Many individuals will find that eating a healthy, balanced diet, and exercising regularly will also help improve side effects of menopause.

There are also a variety of routes you can go down in consultation with your healthcare professional. If you are struggling with the symptoms of menopause, speak to your doctor or pharmacist about your options.
