Menopause: Changes in Body

Menopause - Changes in Body The period of menopause means the entry of the body into the stage of natural aging. Changes in the body during the menopause occur under the influence of female sex hormones. The extinction of ovarian function leads to inadequate production of hormones and the development of irreversible changes in the body. Changes in menopause affect the entire body of a woman.

The climax is a natural process, which means the transition of the body to a stage where the reproductive function is no longer required. Against the backdrop of such changes in the body, a woman can become aggravated with previously acquired diseases, which before the onset of menopause were in remission. The climacteric period is divided into several stages, each of which is marked by a certain symptomatology. The age range from 45 to 60 years is common for menopause, and the change in the timing depends on the individual characteristics of the organism. If a woman has abnormalities in the organs of the reproductive system, then the climacteric period can occur much earlier than natural time, and be aggravated by the severity of manifestation of symptoms. The onset of climacteric changes in the body is associated with a decrease in the level of estrogen in the blood. The period is characterized by vegetovascular disorders, disturbances in the excretory system, a decrease in the level of skin elasticity, a risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, a deviation in the structure of the bone tissue, and disorders in the psychological and cognitive sphere. The increase in the period of climacteric changes is associated with an increase in the average life expectancy; this also increases the period of estrogen shortage in the blood, which leads to the emergence of a persistent menopausal syndrome. Among the main causes of the onset of menopause can be identified a hormonal failure in the body. Reducing the level of sex hormones in the blood can trigger the onset of an early menopause. Obesity, impaired metabolism, and diabetes mellitus can disrupt the functioning of the thyroid gland, which will lead to complications in the work of the organs of the reproductive system.

During the period when a woman enters the menopause, changes take place throughout the body:

  • there is a sharp decrease in the level of acquired and natural immunity,
  • there is a growing risk of recurrence of autoimmune and fungal infections,
  • there are gradually degenerate regenerative skin processes.

But the woman’s reproductive system undergoes the most obvious changes. During the menopause, the level of estrogen is rapidly declining. In order to stimulate the production of estrogen, a woman can take drugs, such as Clomid.

Irritability and a sharp change in mood are also characteristic symptoms of menopause. A woman’s body at menopause does not receive the proper amount of estrogen, which leads to dryness in the vagina. The woman experiences unpleasant sensations both during the sexual act and after it. And in this situation, the achievement of orgasm is impossible without the help of the above mentioned drugs.
