Menopause

Menopause hits every woman at some point between her 40's and her 60's and signals the end of the fertile period. Along with it come many discomforts and problems that can make day to day living difficult until the process of ceasing menstruation has finished.

Symptoms

Symptoms of menopausal problems include irregular menstruation, hot flashes, lethargy, irritability, night sweats, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, frequent bladder infections, forgetfulness, depression, joint and muscle pain, palpitations, constipation, decreased sex drive, and mood swings.

Causes

This condition is a natural part of a woman's life cycle although not every woman will experience symptoms. Hormones fluctuate and change as a woman goes from a menstruating phase to a non-menstruating phase.

Cautions

Some problems of menopause may become severe. Depression can be debilitating if it is not treated. Excessive bleeding may indicate thyroid or fibroid problems. As menopause progresses, osteoporosis and heart attacks become more likely.

Important: If you have a history of estrogen dependent tumors, only use herbs under guidance of your doctor or medical herbalist.
