A new phase in your life
Menopause is not just a phase in a women’s life, it refers to the natural decline in reproductive hormones when a woman is in her 40s or 50s to mark the end of reproductive years. It is a unique and individual experience and sometimes, it can bring discomfort and hormonal imbalance in specific hormones like estrogen and progesterone.
We understand that this new phase in your life may not be easy. Some women experience few or no symptoms, and for those who do experience them, the symptoms can vary extensively. However, we believe we have a solution to help you and ease some of them.
What are the 3 stages of menopause?
This stage presents initial symptoms (like irregular periods and hot flashes) from 3 to 5 years before the menopause stage. In this stage, the estrogen and progesterone levels start to slowly decrease. This is why it is so important to have annual hormone check-ups, especially in your late 30s. In this stage, however, you can still get pregnant.
If by natural causes you have been 12 consecutive months without your period, you have entered menopause. At this stage your ovaries no longer release eggs and therefore, you can’t get pregnant.
This stage begins right after you enter menopause, once you reach this stage, It will last for the rest of your life. In this stage, women can experience several symptoms with different intensities and variations. Some of these symptoms include:
Sudden mood swings and irritability
Sleep irregularities or insomnia
Hot flashes and night sweats
Raise in heart rate
Depression and anxiety
Urinary conditions like incontinence
