Menopause - Prime Hormone Solutions

What is menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process that all women experience as they age. It refers to the point when a woman stops having her menstrual periods and reaches the end of her reproductive years.

The years leading up to menopause are called perimenopause. During this transition time, usually starting in a woman's 40s, the body begins making less of the key hormones estrogen and progesterone. This causes changes in her menstrual cycles, as well as various possible physical and emotional symptoms.

The lead-up to menopause lasts for several years. Here are the stages:

Hormone levels don't just drop suddenly. Estrogen levels gradually decline during the perimenopausal transition. Meanwhile, initially, levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) will spike dramatically but then also decrease over time. These hormone fluctuations drive the changes of menopause.

While menopause ends a woman's reproductive capacity, it should not disrupt her ability to live a full, healthy, and happy life. With proper education, lifestyle adjustments, and medical support if needed, most women are able to move through this transition gracefully.
