🌸Menopause occurs when a woman's period stops due to low hormone levels. This usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55.
🌸Perimenopause is when a woman experience symptoms but are still having periods.
A woman is not classed as being menopausal until she has not had a period in 12 months.
The most common symptoms include;
- Hot flushes
-Irregular periods -Brain fog
Menopause can be managed with medication called hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT can contain the hormone oestrogen and/or progesterone, and is used to replace the body's own levels around the time of menopause. They can be prescribed on their own or as a combined drug.
