What is Menopause?

Causes
/ Menopause is the stopping of menstruation.
/ Around this period, the secretion of female hormones decreases gradually, leading to infertility and certain physiological and psychological changes.
/ These changes usually occur in their 40s. The median age of menopause in Hong Kong women is 51 but the actual age of menopause varies.

Physiological Symptoms**
/ Hot flushes
Because of vasodilatation, women may experience a sudden hot feeling, which can spread from the chest to the neck and face. It can last for a few minutes and is usually accompanied with sweating all over the body.
/ Palpitation^
/ Excessive sweating, especially during hot flushes^
/ Headache, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia^
/ Irregular menstruation
Menstruation can become irregular before actual menopause. If women notice that they have prolonged and heavy menstrual period or postmenopausal vaginal bleeding, they should seek medical advice.
/ Vaginal dryness
Decreased vaginal secretion, vaginal atrophy and decreased elasticity of the vagina can sometimes cause pain during sexual intercourse.
/ Osteoporosis
A reduction in the secretion of hormones, especially oestrogen, speeds up the loss of calcium in the body, causing the bones to become porous and brittle.

Psychological Symptoms**
Some women undergoing menopause experience depression, irritability, anxiety, emotional fluctuations or loss of confidence. Some may suffer from deterioration of memory or difficulty in concentrating.
