Articles on Menopause

Menopause comes naturally to every normal women who lives out an average lifetime.  Menstrual period normally come about once a month from puberty to the menopause, except during pregnancy or lactation.  As the menopause (change of life) approaches, there is often an irregularity of the flow, a missing of a period, or too frequent or too profuse flows.  The menopause usually comes at about age 46, but it may occur several years earlier or later.  Menopause is a condition when there is a natural cessation of menstrual bleeding in the female.  At this time the pelvic organs begin to shrink in size, and the sex organs lose their reproductive power.  As the menopause approaches, women often have hot flashes (paroxysmal sweating and flushing), palpitations, vaginal and skin dryness, followed by chilliness.  Some fail in general health, lose weight, and have a poor or capricious appetite.  During this period of hormone alternations, there may be a time of physical and emotional disruption in the female, as great discomfort can accompany such as, nausea, vomiting, disturbances in the heart or other organs, weakness, depression and melancholia.  All the symptoms that commonly plague women seem to crowd in during the menopause, headache, backache, fatigue, irritability, anxiety, feelings of depression, digestive disturbances, fainting, constipation, diarrhea, soreness of the breasts and nervousness.

However, the most serious symptom of menopause is osteoporosis.


The duration of menopause varies greatly in different women.  Some cease menstruating abruptly with no disturbing symptoms.  On the average, nervous and irregular menstrual symptoms last from a few months to a year or two.  With some women the symptoms may persist for years.  The menopause is a critical time.  Before the woman reaches it, care should be taken to avoid disturbing influences as far as possible and to put the body into the best possible condition.  Much of the suffering that accompanies change of life could be avoided by treatment of menstrual disorders beforehand and by maintenance of good health.
