Understanding Menopause and Its Symptoms

Menopause marks the end of a woman's menstrual cycles and her body's natural reproductive years. It typically begins in a woman's late 40s to early 50s. As a woman approaches menopause, her ovaries begin producing less of the key hormones estrogen and progesterone. This decline in hormones causes a variety of symptoms. Being informed about what to expect during menopause can help women be proactive about relief.

Common Symptoms

Many women experience bothersome symptoms as they transition into menopause. Common complaints include:

Emotional Impact

In addition to physical symptoms, some women struggle emotionally during menopause. The combination of hot flashes, sleep deprivation, and hormonal changes can significantly impair mood and quality of life.

It's important not to dismiss menopausal issues as unimportant or "just part of aging." Seeking treatment can help women feel like themselves again.

Diagnosing Hormone Imbalances

The first step in pursuing menopause treatment is diagnostic blood and saliva testing to analyze hormone levels. Two key hormones that decline during perimenopause and menopause are:


Estrogen helps regulate the reproductive system, cholesterol levels, bone strength, heart health, skin elasticity, temperature regulation, memory, and more. Low estrogen is responsible for most disruptive menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, trouble sleeping, vaginal dryness, and mood changes.

There are three main types of estrogen that can be measured:


Progesterone works closely with estrogen to regulate the menstrual cycle each month. It plays an important role in pregnancy as well.

Declining progesterone can lead to issues like:

Saliva or blood tests can identify low progesterone levels. Tracking symptoms and menstrual patterns also helps build a clinical picture.

Benefits of Hormone Therapy

Once testing confirms a hormone deficiency, the most effective treatment is hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to restore optimal estrogen and/or progesterone levels.

The goal of HRT is to minimize troublesome menopausal symptoms so women can feel their best. Customized therapy delivers hormones the body lacks to regain balance. Benefits may include:

Reduced Hot Flashes

For many women, the 1 reason to pursue HRT is eliminating frustrating hot flashes and night sweats. Supplementing low estrogen levels regulates temperature centers in the brain that get disrupted around menopause.

Fewer Vaginal Symptoms

Restoring estrogen improves blood flow and natural lubrication to vaginal tissues. This alleviates dryness, irritation, pain, and discomfort during intimacy which affect over half of menopausal women.

Healthier Heart and Bones

Estrogen plays a protective role in cardiovascular health and bone density. Women who take HRT within 6-10 years of menopause tend to have a lower risk of heart disease and osteoporosis.

Enhanced Quality of Life

By improving disruptive menopausal symptoms, hormone therapy helps women regain their quality of life. Restful sleep, balanced moods, active libido, and sharp thinking all contribute to overall wellbeing.
