As a woman who wants to know about the symptoms of menopause,
it is important to have a deeper understanding of what
menopause really is. This deeper understanding will give you
more insight into what to expect as menopause starts.
There are many women who don't have all the true information
about menopause, except some myths and none-fact information
about menopause. Such information only ends up confusing you,
instead of helping you.
Menopause is simply the permanent end to menstruation of
The time that this occurs varies from women to women. In the
United States, for example, most women start experiencing
menopause from their late 40s. Many other women, start
experiencing menopause in their early 50s.
While some women happily and patiently look forward to it,
others get scared of it. For those who look forward to it,
could be tired of monthly menstruation and look forward to
menopause knowing they would no longer menstruate. This is
especially true for ladies who always have painful menstrual
For those who get scared of it, they could still be expecting
to bear children and so don't want menopause since it will
signal an end to child bearing.
Whichever category you fall into, menopause signals the end of
your ability as a lady to bear children. Menopause in most
women is preceded by 10 to 15 years during which the ovaries
gradually stop producing eggs and sex hormones. This period is
also known as the climacteric period.
Instead of worrying stiff about when menopause will start and
the symptoms, itís more important to start preparing your mind
and body for it. If you need to bear children, start early
before your late 40s and early 50s. This will ensure you get
done with child bearing before menopause catches up with you.
