Menopause is a condition when a woman has experienced her last menstruation. Most women enter menopause between the ages of 45 and 60, and the average age of women in Australia and New Zealand is 51 years. The perimenopausal period is the period of one year before and after the last menstruation.
Almost all women experience symptoms during menopause. Most women find that these symptoms can be controlled with lifestyle choices such as healthy eating and getting regular exercise. If the symptoms are severe or affect the quality of life then there are several ways to control them. These symptoms may show up in form of hot flushes, sweats, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, joint aches, and vaginal dryness.
The treatment for these may include but is not limited to Menopausal Hormone Therapy (MHT) which includes Oestrogen and progesterone therapies.
