Menopause - The change
Menopause? Do you feel like you are approaching the menopause. Or are you already going through the change? Do you want to avoid the related complaints? Or do you already suffer from symptoms and want to do something about it?
Menopausal complaints can be caused by a reduction in the female hormone. All too often the symptoms are linked to an increased risk of other illnesses, especially cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, incontinence and weight gain.
The menopausal screening doesn't just give an idea of the stage of the menopause or change, but also screens for other risk factors.
Effective menopausal treatment includes many factors and requires a personalised and specialised medical approach. The screening helps us formulate a tailor-made medical treatment for you.
MenopauseA number of chronic conditions often arise after the menopause (change), in particular cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, incontinence and weight gain. By being conscious of these conditions we can take measures to limit the health risks linked with the menopause.
We can screen for these and other risk factors. We also screen your hormone balance to provide us with a detailed picture of the stage of the menopause which you are going through.
The menopause or the change is no illnessThe menopause is a natural biological process, not an illness. It means the end of fertility and menstruation. It certainly doesn't mean that the end is near, you are after all barely half way through your life.
Furthermore the menopause doesn't mean the end of your femininity or sexuality.
There are many women who find the menopause or change liberating because they no longer have to worry about pregnancy or menstruation.
Symptoms and complaints of the menopause - changeThe physical and emotional symptoms of the menopause can disturb your sleep, drain your energy and give rise to feelings of grief and loss. Other common symptoms are: irregular periods, vaginal dryness, hot flushes (the sweats), mood swings, weight gain around the midriff, thinning hair and a loss in the fullness of the breasts.
Causes of the menopause - changeThe natural menopause occurs when the ovaries produce less oestrogen and progesterone, these are the hormones which regulate menstruation. This process begins around the age of 40. This is when less potential egg cells ripen, and ovulation is less predictable.
Hormonal changes cause the irritating menopausal symptoms, but misconceptions about the change often form the basis of emotional symptoms.
