symptoms of menopause and perimenopause, can often be confused. Women can be helped by knowing exactly where in this natural cycle they are now.
would not that be great? It can be as confusing as our hormones begin their journey from the periphery to full menopause to definitely say ‘this is it’. Or even be able to say with certainty that their symptoms of menopause and were definitely not caused by something else.
Why is it useful to know?
the most important reason, of course, is that if you know when you are starting perimenopause, then not too leave late to have a family as their fertility decreases when approaching that stage of life. in the West, women are having their children later because of his career, a need to work to support the family income or simply not feels it is the right time.
We know statistically that many women are starting menopause earlier, although the average is around 51 which may occur in the late 30s and until the 60s women who have had a hysterectomy, for example, experience immediate surgical menopause, along with all the accompanying symptoms. Actually, when we talk about going through menopause is actually perimenopause as strictly exact meaning of menopause is defined as the end of the last menstrual period, as after a hysterectomy.
In Western women, which occurs on average at age 51. But there is a wide range of normal extending from 30 to 60 and is as variable as the person who so far can not predict accurately. You may have a genetic component that is currently being investigated, but until now 1 in 20 women in the UK are likely to experience early menopause.
What happens to start perimenopause?
Changes in our bodies begin when the ovaries no longer respond to the controlling hormones released by the pituitary gland in the brain. As a result, the ovaries do not release an egg each month and therefore do not produce estrogen and progesterone.
Is the drop in the levels of these hormones in the bloodstream that leads to the symptoms of menopause. Although much has been made of the drop in estrogen levels, decreased progesterone is even more important because although women still produce estrogen in fat cells and adrenals, do not continue producing progesterone and it is this imbalance that leads to the symptoms of estrogen dominance.
