What is Menopause: Menopause is defined as the absence of period for 12 months and marks the end of the menstrual cycle in a woman.

Age: Usually occurs in your 40s or 50s. Before the age of 40, it is known as premature menopause.

What will happened: During the transition years before menopause occurs, which is also known as peri-menopausal phase; there is wide fluctuation of oestrogen levels which causes many symptoms in women.

Symptoms that many women often experience would include:

Physical symptoms:

Hot flashes
Night sweats
Vaginal dryness
Lack of energy
Weight gain
Dry, itchy skin
Joint and muscle pain
Low sexual desire

Psychological symptoms:
Trouble sleeping
Mood changes
Poor memory and concentration
Less interest in sexual activity


Any vaginal bleeding, even spotting, after menopause, which is known as post menopausal bleeding, has to be investigated by a doctor as sinister causes such as endometrial cancer have to be excluded.

Thank you! for the informative post. I have heard a lot about menopause, but concerning a doctor before taking a prior decision is very essential. One of my friend was thinking the same as she was having an irregular period for a long time but it was not menopause, and after some days it started suddenly with heavy bleeding. The use of proper menstrual products can be use to handle the situation.

Welcome, Casey Lee.

Menopause is fabulous after years of being a fertile woman, in spite of a few minor symptoms that won't kill you.

And yes, it is absolutely essential to see a doctor immediately if there is spotting. And don't be put off if they don't find anything at first - I lost a good friend that way.

Equality is when you see a person - not a label.
