Women do not age

No woman escapes hormonal changes; at about age 45 to 55, all women begin to notice that something is wrong with their bodies. The body transitions from the reproductive phase to the non-reproductive phase. This means that ovarian function declines, ovulation ceases, bleeding eases, and eventually disappears altogether. All of this is caused by a decrease in the production of the female hormone estrogen.

During this period, one may experience dry mucous membranes and changes in skin and hair texture. Hot flashes and uncomfortable sensations appear. Hair falls out more easily and nails become brittle. A burning sensation may be experienced when urinating, and sexual desire may decrease. Dry mucous membranes make the patient more susceptible to various infections. As the elasticity of the connective tissue decreases, the urethral sphincter may loosen, causing incontinence.


Many women naturally gain fat after transition. Basal metabolism and fat storage patterns change. Fat is stored primarily in the abdomen. Therefore, women need to watch their diet long before they transition.As estrogen supply weakens, the nutritional balance of the bones is also disrupted. When estrogen supply weakens, the nutritional balance of the bones is also disrupted.Osteoporosis becomes apparent about 15 years after transition when the risk of fractures and tooth loss increases. Prevention involves adequate calcium and vitamin D supplementation.Modern medicine, however, has a solution for women not to worry. Hormone replacement therapy can be implemented. These are medications that compensate for estrogen deficiency. Doctors prescribe pills, patches, sprays, or gels. Different women are suited for different things, so treatment should be discussed with the physician.Exercise and good lifestyle habits are also important. Walking, swimming, Nordic walking, yoga, or hormonal yoga are like a spa for the female body. It relieves menopausal symptoms such as irritability, tearfulness, restlessness, and stress.
