Menopause

Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It’s diagnosed after you’ve gone 12 months without a menstrual period. The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline. However, around 1 in 100 women experience the menopause before 40 years of age. This is known as premature menopause or premature ovarian insufficiency, which needs multi-skilled expertise from our hospital in gurgaon.

Common symptoms include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes, night sweats or chills
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Reduced sex drive (libido)
  • Sleep problems
  • Mood changes
  • Weight gain and slowed metabolism
  • Thinning hair and dry skin
  • Loss of breast fullness
  • Headaches
  • Joint stiffness, aches and pains
  • Reduced muscle mass?
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs)

After menopause, risk of certain medical conditions increases:

  • Heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease.
  • Osteoporosis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Weight gain

In such a shaky situation, the need to visit our expert gynecologist in gurgaon becomes the need of the hour.

Treatments to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause:

  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that relieves menopausal symptoms by replacing oestrogen
  • Vaginal oestrogen creams, lubricants or moisturisers for vaginal dryness
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help with low mood and anxiety
  • Eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising regularly to maintain a healthy weight and stay fit

It’s worth searching for hospital near me on internet these days and talking to an expert if you have menopausal symptoms that are troubling you or if you’re experiencing symptoms of the menopause before 45 years of age. Your doctors can usually confirm whether you are menopausal based on your symptoms and a blood test to measure your hormone levels may be carried out if you’re under 45.
