Symptoms of menopause

This period is defined as a physiological phenomenon corresponding to the interruption of ovarian function, and therefore, the cessation of periods. Multiple physical, physiological and psychological symptoms herald the onset of menopause.

Perimenopause

Menopause does not come on suddenly. It sets in gradually after a period called "perimenopause". This phase corresponds to the weakening of a woman's fertilizable eggs. The hormonal balance is affected, and the constant variation prevails in the levels of estrogen and progesterone.

Observing a duration between two and four years, this phenomenon is characterized by the following signs:

  • Irregular periods
  • Irritability
  • Tension at chest height
  • Nighttime hot flashes

Remember that this period does not, in any way, mean the impossibility of getting pregnant. Of course, the chances decrease, but only the confirmation of the menopause initiates the end of the contraception.

Menopause disorders

The upheavals caused by menopause are numerous. If they do not systematically affect all women, they can handicap their daily lives for several years.

These ailments are manifested by various and varied transformations:

  • Thinning and dryness of the skin
  • Weakening of tissues and bones
  • Painful joints
  • Weight gain
  • Signs of depression and bad mood

The symptoms of menopause are also characterized by disorders defined as climacteric:

  • Hot flashes (chills, dizziness, faintness, profuse sweating, etc.)
  • Night sweats
  • Urinary leaks
  • Headache
  • Inability to sleep
  • Tiredness

How to treat menopause?

If you suffer from one or more of the symptoms mentioned above, do not hesitate to book an appointment with the gynecology department at Turó Park Medical Center. Our professionals will present a wide range of therapeutic techniques for you to accompany you in the best possible way in this new cycle of life.

The primary purpose of the first visit is to listen to you and diagnose menopause, characterized by the absence of periods for 12 months in a row. If there is no proper exam, our gynecologists can order a progesterone test. This involves ingesting this hormone for 3 months in a row. The result is radical, because if the absence of periods persists, then menopause is reconfirmed.

We care for Women.

Our specialists offer obstetrics and gynecologic care for women through all phases of life, from your pre-teen years to post-menopausal years.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about the menopause

What is the average age of menopause?

The regularity and duration of the menstrual cycle varies over a woman's reproductive life, but the age at which natural menopause occurs is generally between 45 and 55 years for women worldwide.

Does the menopause cause weight gain?

Women gain an average of 2 to 2.5 kg at menopause. This weight gain is particularly noticeable during the transition period between perimenopause and menopause, which lasts about 3 years. During this period, weight tends to accumulate in the abdominal area.

Does menopause make you tired?

At the menopause, the sudden drop in oestrogen generally leads to a drop in physical and mental energy and even to intense fatigue, often with repercussions on energy. However, this manifests itself differently in each person.
