Menopause and perimenopause

Menopause and perimenopause are natural stages in a woman’s life that mark the end of the reproductive years. Menopause is defined as the permanent cessation of menstrual periods, while perimenopause refers to the transitional period leading up to menopause. During these stages, hormonal changes can lead to a variety of physical and emotional symptoms.

Types

  • Menopause: The complete end of the menstrual cycle for at least 12 months.
  • Perimenopause: The period of time leading up to menopause where hormone levels fluctuate, and menstrual cycles become irregular.

Symptoms

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex
  • Mood changes, including irritability and depression
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Memory problems and difficulty concentrating
  • Urinary incontinence

Prevalence

Globally, the prevalence of menopause and perimenopause is difficult to determine due to variations in cultural and socioeconomic factors. However, it is estimated that about 25 million women reach menopause each year worldwide, and the number is expected to increase as the global population ages. In Europe, it is estimated that about 12% of women experience premature menopause (before age 40), while the average age of natural menopause is around 51 years.

In the Middle East and GCC region, data on the prevalence of menopause and perimenopause is scarce. However, women in this region tend to have a higher prevalence of risk factors for menopause-related health conditions, such as obesity, physical inactivity, and low vitamin D levels.

It is important to note that menopause and perimenopause affect every woman differently and may occur earlier or later than average depending on various factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and medical history. Regular check-ups with a healthcare provider can help women stay informed about their individual risk factors and treatment options.

The Solution

Endobiogenic medicine offers a holistic approach to managing the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. This approach involves identifying the underlying hormonal imbalances and using a combination of lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplements, and botanicals to support the body’s natural hormonal balance. Endobiogenic treatment can help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, mood changes, and vaginal dryness.

In conclusion, menopause and perimenopause are natural stages of a woman’s life that can be accompanied by a range of physical and emotional symptoms. While these symptoms can be challenging to manage, endobiogenic medicine offers a holistic approach to support the body’s natural hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms, improving overall health and well-being.
