Post Menopausal Syndrome

The manifestations that appear recurrently in menopause are referred to as post menopausal syndrome. Hot flashes, Poor sleep, Genitourinary symptoms/sexual dysfunction, and mood changes are the most ordinary post menopausal syndrome symptoms seen among women. Post menopause begins once a woman has officially surpassed menopause 12 months after her last period. Somewhere between ages 45 and 55, the average age of menopause lies.

The natural hormone estrogen is essential for maintaining health throughout a woman’s body. And it does play a crucial part in the female reproductive system. Hormonal balance regulates a major part of menstruation and its several phases. The body’s major systems can be influenced by a decline in estrogen. For instance, it has an optimistic effect on the inner layer of the artery wall, thus having an impact on the cardiovascular system. Osteoporosis is a condition that compels the bone to become brittle and weak due to the lack of estrogen which comes as an after-effect of post menopausal syndrome . The thinning of the urethra lining and weakening of the pelvic muscles may occur due to lower amounts of estrogen in the body which can increase the risk of bladder leakage, urinary tract infections, and other urogynecology problems.
