Menopause Hormones By Jodie Philips

The main problem with menopause is that there is a drastic reduction in production of the female hormones. This is what causes all the physical discomfort and hot flushes in menopause. The popular line of treatment is to take menopause hormones externally. Substitution of menopause hormones can be in the form of oral medication or it can be local application in the form of topical ointments. It is important to take these menopause hormones strictly under a doctor’s guidance. A doctor studies the patient’s symptoms and entire family history and then recommends the correct dose and combination of menopause hormones. This ensures that the patient is not at risk and is taking the right menopause hormone. Women can take either one or both menopause hormones depending on their physical condition and age. Women who have undergone a hysterectomy must take both estrogen and progesterone. Such women have a greater risk of heart disease, blood clots and breast cancer. Women taking estrogen alone have a chance of suffering a stroke. Menopause hormones give good relief from hot flushes and vaginal dryness. There is no proof that they prevent heart disease or improve one’s general health. The benefits of menopause hormones vary with age. Women with early menopause greatly benefit from a short course of menopause hormones. Older women who take menopause hormones have a greater risk of developing breast cancer or tumors. Younger women do reduce their chance of heart disease by taking menopause hormones. A comprehensive study to determine the benefits and risks of menopause hormones in younger women is underway. The results of this study can provide vital clues for improving the health and quality of life of menopausal women in the years to come. There is a need to regulate the duration of menopause hormones. One must take estrogen daily and progesterone about twice a week. The exact dosage varies with the patient’s symptoms and medical condition. However, it is worth taking menopause hormones for a short time and not on a continuous basis. A woman must regularly review the dosage of menopause hormones with her doctor. If the hot flushes

have ceased, she must stop taking menopause hormones gradually. She can also shift to other localized medication like creams and patches. Menopause hormones are not a cure for age related problems like osteoporosis and heart disease. They are the last step in therapy when other medications have failed for these medical conditions. Thus, a doctor must prescribe menopause hormones only after a detailed study of the patient’s medical record. Menopause hormones are not a magic cure for the symptoms of menopause, but they do gradually lessen some of its symptoms like hot flushes.

The Facts Surrounding Menopause By John Russell

Menopause is a specific stage in a woman's life and is something that all women will experience. The average age that menopause affects women is 51 years old, however, it's not uncommon for the onset of menopause to occur much earlier or much later. If you experience menopause before the age of 45, it is known as early menopause; before the age of 40 is known as premature menopause, but just what exactly is it and what causes it? The reason that menopause occurs is that the ovaries spontaneously fail to produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Your ovaries will naturally fail to produce these two hormones when you only have a few remaining egg cells. During this stage, the ovaries become less able to respond to the pituitary hormones; follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH). It is through this that low and changing levels of ovarian hormones, especially estrogen, are thought to be the cause of menopause symptoms in many women. There are, however, times when the onset of menopause isn't through the natural failing of the ovaries. Your ovaries also possibly fail through aspects such as specific treatments like chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or when your ovaries are removed, in the case of a hysterectomy. Going through menopause is basically when your periods stop for good. Once you have gone through menopause, there is no longer a chance that you can get pregnant. This change doesn't happen overnight however, you can have menopause symptoms for several years. The changes that take place within your body that lead up to the eventual onset of menopause can start as early as ten years before you experience your last period. Then, once it has been a year since your last period, it is medically safe to say that you have gone through menopause, as long as there are no other obvious reasons that your periods would have stopped. When leading up to menopause, your ovaries will start to make less of the two important hormones, estrogen and progesterone. The reason your ovaries will produce less of these hormones is because, as you grow older, you will start to lose eggs that are stored in your ovaries. Basically, as a woman, you are born with hundreds of thousands of eggs that are stored in your ovaries. However, during your lifetime only several hundred of these eggs will be released. All of the others will begin to shrivel up and disappear as you age. It is these eggs that stimulate your ovaries to produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone, so as you lose these eggs your ovaries will make less of the hormones. There are a number of symptoms that can be associated with menopause, both physical and psychological. The physical symptoms include aspects such as night sweats, wrinkles, weight gain, and hot flashes. The psychological symptoms, however, are related to the process of physical change. You may experience the fear of losing your attractiveness or an uncertainty of your purpose in life. In some cases, these feelings outweigh the physical discomfort that you may be feeling. Where menopause is concerned you may experience a handful of these problems or you may only experience one. Whatever the case is, there is help and advice out there for you so you don't have to suffer these symptoms on your own. Take advantage of the help that is available.
