Menopause: The point in time when a woman’s menstrual periods stop. Periods can stop for a while and then start again, so a woman is considered to have been through menopause only after a full year without periods. (There also can’t be some other reason for the periods stopping like being sick or pregnant.)
After menopause, a woman no longer can get pregnant. It is common to experience symptoms such as hot flashes in the time around menopause. The average age of menopause is 51, but for some women it happens in their 40s or later in their 50s. Sometimes this time is called “the change of life,” However always remember menopause is a normal part of life.
Perimenopause: The menopausal transition; the time leading up to a woman’s last period. During this time a woman will have changes in her levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. These changes may cause symptoms like hot flashes. Some symptoms can last for months or years after a woman’s period stops. After menopause, a woman is in post menopause, this status lasts the rest of her life.
You can avoid the discomforting symptoms and side effects of menopause and perimenopause through balancing your hormones. Estrogen dominance is a major contributing factor to symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause and can also increase your risk for cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. Through balancing your hormones, you can correct estrogen dominance and alleviate many of the symptoms above and more.
