What is Menopause?

Menopause is the ending of the menstrual cycle and is a natural biologic process that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55. Menopause occurs due to a natural reduction of estrogen and a decline of the a function of the ovaries.

Your body’s estrogen levels over a life time

When it comes to menopause, the estrogen levels gives us many answers on the symptoms we get and what is happening with the body. Menopause is the time for the woman’s last menstrual bleeding, but the symptoms can begin several years before, which is called premenopause. It is followed by perimenopause, the time around menopause. Menopause is replaced by post-menopause that lasts a lifetime.

Products to ease vaginal dryness

Due to the reduction of estrogen during menopause, the mucous membranes in the vulva and vagina become thinner as does the content of collagen and elastin. Symptoms such as irritations, dryness and the tenderness in the vulva are common, but can be reduced by using the DeoDoc Oil Series.

What are women most unprepared for when it comes to going through menopause?

“Based on my experience, many women know that menopause is associated to hot flashes and the ending of menstruation.

However, symptoms such as depression, mood changes, vaginal dryness, vaginal irritation, are not understood by many women to be caused by menopause and therefore they get surprised by this.

It is very important to know that there are a lot of good treatments and medications on the market to handle menopause symptoms. If you have concerns I advise you to talk to your OB/GYN.”
