Menopause is the time in a women's life where her menstrual cycle stops permanently and she can no longer conceive a child.
Menopause typically occurs naturally and it most commonly happens after the age of 45 in women. It is caused by sex hormone changes in the body which happens when a women's ovaries stop producing as much estrogen as it once did, and also stops releasing an egg each month.
Early Menopause is when Menopause begins prior to the age of 45. If Menopause occurs prior to the age of 40 then it is referred to as Premature Menopause.
While the cause of Early or Premature Menopause is often unknown, there are a few causes that we are aware of. They include:
While the symptoms may vary, more typically a women going through Early Menopause will experience:
Perimenopause is also known as "Menopause transition" because it begins several years prior to Menopause and is the time when women experience a variety of menopausal symptoms. During this time, the ovaries gradually make less estrogen. Perimenopause lasts until Menopause which is when the ovaries stop releasing eggs and produce less estrogen. While this typically occurs in women who are in the 40s, it can also begin in your 30s.
Most typically, Perimenopause lasts around 4 years though this can vary somewhat. Some women report they are in Perimenopause for only a few months while others have shared they experienced changes for nearly a decade.
Symptoms often accelerate in the final 1-2 years of Perimenopause. This is because the final months or years of Menopause have a faster decrease in estrogen production. This is when women most often experience menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, restlessness, night sweats, and so on.
Perimenopause has ended once a women has gone through a full year (12 months) without experiencing her menstrual cycle. At this point, she is in Menopause.
Yes, a women may still conceive a child during Perimenopause. While ovulation may be unpredictable during this time, if the ovaries are still releasing eggs than yes, pregnancy can occur.
Most often, Perimenopause occurs naturally. It is a biologically natural process that a women's body goes through when her menstrual cycle stops and eggs stop releasing from the ovaries.
Perimenopause is the time that occurs before Early Menopause, Premature Menopause, or Menopause occurs. While it is most often naturally occurring, it can be onset by the same factors as described in Early or Premature Menopause.
Yes, it is common to find that some level of hair loss or hair thinning occurs during Perimenopause or Menopause as the body is going through hormonal changes.
Since estrogen and progesterone are two hormone that help keep a persons hair in the growing phase, having those decrease during Perimenopause and Menopause can slow hair growth and cause some hair loss.
To begin treating your symptoms you first need to go to your doctor. Make sure you keep track of your symptoms over the days and weeks before visiting your doctor as sometimes Perimenopause is diagnosed based off of the symptoms experienced rather than from testing.
Your doctor may also order a blood test be done to see your follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and estrogen levels as low levels in these can be indication that you're in Perimenopause or Menopause.
Yes, hair loss can be reversed. Since hair loss that occurs from Perimenopause or Menopause is hormonal, it can be treated. While hormone treatment options must be discussed with your doctor, you can also begin to review other aspects of your life to improve your hair health.
Because Perimenopause and Menopause can cause quite a bit of stress on the body, it is important to address a few things in order to improve your health and hair growth, such as:
