Health at Menopause
Frequently the terms "menopause", "the change", "that time of your life" are simply associated with hot flushes or flashes, night sweats and mood swings. While these are common early symptoms of the menopause and the consequent hormone changes, many changes take place at this stage and beyond which affect other health issues such as the need for contraception and when to stop, bone health and heart health. Further, many women have certain medical problems which may be affected by the menopause and may lead to specific requirements when considering the use of treatments for the menopause. Being aware of changes in these other important aspects of health can better prepare us for this next stage of life.
