When your body stops making estrogen and your periods have stopped, you’re probably in menopause. Menopause happens on average around the age of 51. It signals the end of the reproductive years and the end of periods.

However, menopause is not a sudden occurrence for most women. Perimenopause begins in the 30s or 40s with fluctuating levels of estrogen that can result in skipped, light or heavy periods. When your periods are absent for a year, you’re considered to be in menopause. We sometimes use a blood test to confirm menopause. On the journey from perimenopause to menopause, many women experience symptoms such as hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, vaginal dryness, urinary tract irritation, and/or increased vaginal and urinary tract infections. Menopause also can contribute to bone loss, fractures and osteoporosis. You may experience very few or several of these symptoms. If perimenopause or menopause is causing you difficulties, Women First can help assess your symptoms and offer some options for relief.

Coping with Menopause

Menopause, or the ceasing of a woman’s menstrual cycle and periods, usually is completed when a woman is in her early 50s. Often called “the change,” menopause rarely involves a neat, sudden change. Usually, perimenopause starts in the 40s or even 30s with menstrual changes and some early symptoms of menopause, leading up to increasing symptoms and increasingly irregular periods. Symptoms vary by women and can include hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, vaginal dryness, urinary tract irritation, and/or increased vaginal and urinary tract infections. Some women experience none of these symptoms, and each symptom can vary in intensity. Your Women First Care Team can help you deal with these symptoms on your way to menopause, which is considered complete after you’ve had no periods for 12 months.

I love Dr. Brown. Hands down, she is an Angel on Earth. I literally would not be here today without her. She always tells me exactly what I need to hear, she stands up for her patients, and has believed in me when I don’t believe in myself. Woman’s health isn’t just gynecological. It’s mental. It’s having someone there to hold your hand when you’re alone. And Dr. Brown continues to hold my hand and I can’t thank her enough. I will forever be indebted to her and will love her forever. I will miss her incredibly and deeply when she retires. Thank you Dr. Brown, for everything. -Tiffany Enriquez
