Menopause

What is menopause? Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her periods stop and she can't have children anymore. This happens because as a woman ages, her ovaries stop making enough of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.

When does menopause happen? The average age for women to have their last period is about 50. But it's normal for menopause to occur any time from age 41 to 59. A woman often goes through menopause at about the same age as her mother. Women who have both ovaries removed will go through "surgical menopause" at the time of their surgery. If the uterus is taken out but the ovaries are left, a woman won't have periods but she will only go through menopause when her ovaries stop making estrogen. If you stop having periods early--before age 40--your doctor can do a blood test to see if you're going through menopause. Menopause is a gradual process that can take several years. You're not really through menopause until you haven't had a period for 12 months.

What are the common signs of menopause? Some women just stop having periods. Others experience symptoms such as: a change in menstrual cycle (may skip periods or they may occur closer together and your flow may be lighter or heavier than usual); hot flashes (most common symptom of menopause); thinning of your vagina and vulva (the area around your vagina); urinary tract problems (you are more likely to have bladder and urinary tract infections during and after menopause); and additional symptoms such as headaches, night sweats, trouble sleeping and tiredness.

Emotional symptoms? Many women experience emotional symptoms during menopause. These symptoms may include sadness, anxiety, and loss of sleep. For some women, symptoms can be severe. If you find that you're having emotional problems, talk to your family doctor. Contact our online pharmacy if you would like more information about this or any other condition you may have. We are experienced Rx professionals offering safe drugs online at affordable prices so that you can get the medications you need.

What is hormone replacement therapy? Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) involves taking estrogen alone or estrogen combined with another hormone, progestin. Some women have found that HRT can relieve symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness and some urinary problems. However, HRT is not for everyone. New information from recent studies suggests that for many women, the risks of using HRT may outweigh the benefits. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of HRT.

Are other treatments available? Yes. Medicines such as estrogen cream, antidepressants, soy products and certain herbal supplements may help ease some menopausal symptoms. Discuss these options with your doctor.
