Menopause appears at the cessation of ovarian function and the final disappearance of ovulation and menstruation.
This cessation leads to a sharp drop in the production of estrogen and progesterone, which can induce various symptoms in women.
Scientifically, a woman is said to be menopausal when she has not had her period for one year. In France, women reach menopause at the average age of 51.
Menopause is divided into 3 phases:
1- Early menopause usually affects women before the age of 40 and is often related to surgery (i.e. removal of the ovaries), chemotherapy, radiotherapy…Perimenopause usually occurs around the age of 47. It is the period prior to menopause when progesterone becomes deficient while estrogen secretion is preserved.
2- Menopause: The average age of menopause is between 50 and 51 years
70% of women experience hot flashes, defined by shivering, trembling, feeling unwell, dizziness, sudden feeling of intense heat, palpitations, heavy sweating during the day but also at night. Discomforts such as vulvovaginal dryness, urinary problems, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, and diffuse joint pain can also appear during this period.
3- Post Menopause with symptoms such as vaginal dryness, urinary incontinence, cystitis, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, increased risk of osteoporosis, loss of skin flexibility, hair loss, and weight gain.
