Menopause is a biological process in which there is low production of the estrogen and progesterone by the ovaries. Menopause is diagnosed when a woman is without a menstrual period at least 12 consecutive months. Menopause can happen in your 40s or 50s, but the average age in the UAE is 48 years old. If it happens before 40, it is called premature menopause.
Signs and symptoms can vary among women. Below are some common signs and symptoms:
● Irregular periods (before totally ending)
● Vaginal dryness
● Vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats
● Decreased libido
● Repeat urinary infections
● Sleep problems
● Mood swings
