Menopause

Are you waking in the night drenched in sweat?

Are you feeling tired and anxious? 

Did you know that menopause is actually a retrospective diagnosis?

It's true! You are truly only in menopause when you have not had a period for 12 months.

Prior to that you are in Perimenopause and this can go on for up to 10 years before your period actually stops.  

 

During that time your oestrogen levels will fluctuate and this is associated with:

   

  1. Hot flashes/flushes - around 80% of women experience these! and they can last for up to  7 years after your last period.

  2. Brain Fog

  3. Anxiety

  4. Insomnia - up to 60% of women have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep

  5. Vaginal dryness

  6. Urinary Tract Infections (UTI's)

  7. Weight gain

It's also at this time that your ovarian function declines and you find your period becomes irregular with some long cycles followed by short ones.  There can also be heavy bleeding which can be both exhausting and frustrating.
