Menopause

Every woman goes through three developmental phases in her life: puberty, fertility and menopause. Menopause usually happens between 45-55 years of age, and should be considered a transitional phase in a woman's life. Women during menopause have to face many new challenges, particularly in the area of health. As the changes that bring menopause are associated with a decline in physical functioning, the body becomes less adaptive and more susceptible to disease. A good attitude about menopause is essential for a smooth transition through this phase. Experts advise that menopause should really be thought of as the beginning of a second adulthood, a chance to make choices for good long-term healthcare. Most women can expect to live into their 80s, so it is important to consider how to spend the next thirty to forty years by laying a good health foundation for this "second adulthood".


Due to declining and fluctuating hormonal levels during menopause, the body undergoes a series of changes such as menstrual irregularities, hot flushes, insomnia, mood swings, vaginal and bladder problems, and many others. This process varies greatly among women; some may go through it easily while others may find their lives seriously disrupted. Western women tend to have hot flushes and night sweats as major complaints while Chinese women tend to have bone and joint pain, poor memory and fatigue. No two women experience menopause in the same way.
