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.

Yes, bad health advice is everywhere. Just because a sentence is grammatically correct and seems to make sense doesn't make it true (though I saw a Trump supporter on TV the other day who said, "I saw it on the internet so it has to be true!" The illiterate seem to hold the printed word is somewhat too high an esteem).

Good advice, though. When I really need that chocolate bar, I even start walking before I swallow the first bite.

Nearly everyone over 50 in the US has high blood sugar (it would be more, but the US pressured the WHO to raise the "normal" level from 70-100 mg/dl to 80-110 mg/dl so fewer of our fat asses would be prediabetic).

It's true!

Eating a balanced diet is the name of the game. Exercise is an absolute complement to maintain good health.

Also, stay away from websites that throw irrelevant and false information at you. If you need answers to your medical questions, consult your MD. There is quality medical info on line but stay away from the anecdotal misinformation from contributors who know very little about disease, symptoms, as well as treatments.

Thank You! For the helpful post.
