Are you going through the Menopause?

The ‘change’, ‘last period’, ‘hot flushes’ have all been terms used to describe the menopause, however it’s fair to say that most women are beginning to realise that it’s much more than this!

We like to think of the menopause as a period of transitioning where the female body goes through significant hormonal changes. It can be divided into three stages: Peri-menopause, Menopause and Post-menopause. The peri-menopause is the early stage of this transitioning period. In some women it can start as early as the mid-thirties. You have entered the menopause if it’s been a year since your last period. You have entered post-menopause if it’s been more than a year since your last period. Some people use the word ‘menopause’ as an umbrella term to describe all the three different stages but now you know the difference!

The symptoms of the menopause can vary, and for some women, can be very troublesome. Why?  The oestrogen factor!

Often, we associate oestrogen with ‘female organs’ such as the ovaries, and uterus.  At a stretch we might throw in moods and sex drive, but the reality is that many different structures and organs in the body need oestrogen to function effectively.  These include the brain, heart and blood vessels, the musculoskeletal system, skin, bladder, as well as the breasts, ovaries, uterus, vagina, cervix, and pelvic floor.

As oestrogen levels fall, you may start to notice the following:


Managing the Menopause

Menopause Treatments

There are a wide range of treatments available, which can broadly be divided into menopause hormone treatment (MHT) also known as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and ‘alternatives’ to MHT/HRT. Information on the benefits and risks of treatment can sometimes seem conflicting and confusing. At 2MeClinic, we will help you decide on the most appropriate treatment options for your symptoms or health concerns.
