Postmenopause - Balance Hormone Solutions

What is postmenopause?

Postmenopause refers to the time after a woman has gone through menopause, which marks the end of menstruation and fertility. The hallmark sign of postmenopause is that a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a period. This stage begins on average between the ages of 45-55 but can occur earlier or later.

During the perimenopausal transition leading up to menopause, hormone levels fluctuate and periods become irregular. Once menstruation has stopped for 12 straight months, a woman has reached postmenopause. At this point, the ovaries no longer produce eggs and secrete much lower levels of estrogen and progesterone.

Common symptoms women may experience in postmenopause include:

The ceasing of estrogen production also leads to an increased risk for certain health conditions like osteoporosis and heart disease. Managing symptoms and risks is an important aspect of postmenopausal health. Lifestyle measures like regular exercise, stress management, and proper nutrition can help alleviate discomfort. There are also prescription medications available, such as low-dose hormone therapy, that your doctor may recommend.
