arrive at the experience of menopause in a state of confusion,
bewilderment, and fear.
menopause a disease? Are hot flashes, dizziness, forgetfulness and
palpitations normal during the menopausal change? And when does
Perimenopause stop and menopause begin? And what about those
hardly surprising that women know very little about menopause. Yes,
they know that it's inevitable and they know that the menstrual
cycle ends. But very few women actually know what is happening to
their bodies, why certain discomforts or symptoms occur and, more
important, what their options are for coping with and dealing with
Probably the question most frequently asked about menopause,
a disease or a normal event? While some
magazines and talk shows would have you believe that menopause with
all its uncomfortable symptoms is a natural process of aging, other
have built entire businesses on finding a cure for the dreaded state
of "life change".
For centuries, women dealt with menopause in a variety of ways. Some
used folk or home remedies to deal with annoying symptoms - such as
hot flashes, sleeplessness and mood swings - that menopause
sometimes brings. Others visited shamans, witch doctors or
spiritualists to help conquer their discomfort.
Today women often visit
physicians who frequently prescribe hormone replacement therapy
(HRT), which has spawned so much controversy. Many of these
women, about 50%, never fill these prescriptions and either seek an
alternative to HRT or go it alone and accept the risks and
discomforts of menopausal changes without help.

question remains, Is menopause a disease? A normal part of life?
Something to be dreaded? Do women around the world suffer from the
harsh symptoms and worries associated with menopause?
Technically speaking menopause is a medical term that means the
normal and complete cessation of the menstrual cycle, including both
ovulation (the release of an unfertilized egg from the ovaries) and
menstrual periods. So, with this in mind one can see that menopause
refers to a woman's very last menstrual period.
A woman is said to be "in menopause" when she has not had
a period for one year or more.
Menopause usually takes place between the ages of 45 and 55,
although some women experience their last periods in their 60's and
in some cases in their 30's.
Disrupted menstrual cycles and
irregular periods are common flags of the time preceding menopause.
This time is now commonly referred to as Perimenopause and can last
Perimenopause begins without symptoms
and proceeds to a drop in hormone levels that are significant enough
to cause the body to respond by producing hot flashes, changes in
periods, some insomnia and mood changes. In addition some women
complain of dizziness. Hormone sensitive tissues begin to shrink
causing vaginal dryness, and urinary control problems. Bone mass
begins to decrease and skin becomes thinner and looses some
elasticity. Hair can become dry, thin and brittle.

is unfortunate that this picture of menopause has become one that
many women think they must accept.
More than 40 million
women are menopausal now in America. Within the next 25 years this
number is expected to increase to 60 million. At the turn of the
19th century most women did not live past menopause. Public health
interventions and applied medical research have extended women's
lives, on average, by 30 years in the last century but for many
menopausal women this longer life has only meant more years of poor
health and disability. Too little is known about how to promote good
health and prevent and manage the health of older women.
