In the life of any woman comes a phenomenon such as menopause. The offensive of “female autumn” frightens both its surprise and its unpredictability. Experts believe that these fears are contrived and appear only because of the banal ignorance of their own physiology. Nature has created a female organism in such a way that in the 45-48 years, a decrease in the functional of the ovaries usually occurs. This manifests itself in more rare menstruation, less sex hormones are produced.

In the 50-55 years the last menstrual cycle comes, and the woman loses the ability to reproduce the genus, pregnancy will not be able to come. Ovaries begin to produce less hormones, which negatively affects metabolism, circulation, bone and nervous systems. This increases the risk of developing such diseases as hypertension, angina pectoris, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis. So the time of menopause comes.

But doctors believe that it can be postponed. To do this, you need to lead a healthy lifestyle, to eat quality and quality, and the birth of a child in adulthood. Women in general are afraid of the onset of menopause, because their information about him is based on a string of myths and rumors.


Climax negatively affects the female appearance.

The state of skin and hair deteriorates due to a decrease in estrogen production. However, this problem can be solved. But stress, bad habits, poor ecology and sedentary lifestyle affect the well-being of women much more. To go through the climacteric period and maintain its beauty, a woman should comfortably load herself with physical exercises, take care of her body, face and hair, eat well, observe the regime of the day, sleep fully and spend a lot of time in the fresh air. A timely visit to the doctor will help prevent the possible health problems.

The climax comes already in forty years.

It used to be so. Our ancestors had a lot and hard work, giving birth almost every year. That’s why the climax came earlier. Now, on the average, menstruation ceases to come at the age of 50. If the menopause comes before the prescribed, then you can go through a special recovery course. This will help restore childbearing functions.

Climax comes only after reaching 50 years of age.

And today there are cases of early menopause, which is already 35-36 years old. This is considered anomalous. Usually this period comes in 47-48 years, and the last menopause comes in 52 years. There are cases when the period begins with a woman crossing the 60-year barrier. But early climaxes are more frequent phenomena than late ones. The very offensive of such a period can not be postponed or avoided. Scientists did not even identify the factors that directly affect the arrest of the ovaries of women. It is absolutely certain that a climax in a woman’s life will come sooner or later.

After you stop going monthly, you can stop protecting yourself.

With age, the ability to conceive gradually decreases, however, even two years after the onset of menopause, pregnancy is possible. Those who do not want to give birth at this age, it is better to continue to use contraceptives.

With the help of hormonal tablets you can postpone the onset of menopause.

Using hormonal drugs to slow the onset of menopause will be impossible. Such a tool can only support a schedule of the menstrual cycle. In other words, those monthly, which will arrive on time, are an illusion. There is a remedy that can delay menopause. But you can not buy it in a pharmacy. It is believed that regular sex can postpone the onset of menopause.

Thanks to late delivery, it is possible to push off the onset of menopause.

According to the widespread myth, late birth can rejuvenate the body. In fact, the birth of a child does not affect the onset of menopause. Just at such a time, taking care of the child becomes the most important thing in life and pushes the rest of the problems to the background.Painful symptoms simply go unnoticed.

With the climax, the PMS will not bother anymore.

If symptoms of premenstrual syndrome have never manifested themselves throughout the lifetime, it means that they will not appear after the final cessation of menstruation. But if the discomfort is felt every month before the beginning of the monthly period, then it will remain, unfortunately, after the onset of menopause. And the recipe is only one – to lead an active and mobile way of life, to show attention and love for yourself.

Climax is an exclusively female problem.

Actually, the problem is not only that they stop going monthly. It is worth talking about the age-related hormonal restructuring of the whole organism. If the men had men’s periods, they would also stop going. In the period of 45-60 years they also have their own menopause, which proceeds differently than in women. It manifests itself in insomnia, headaches and increased sweating.

The onset of menopause can be easily determined.

Appearing symptoms seem to be classic, but the doctor can only accurately diagnose the onset of menopause. He will take blood and urine tests, determining the level of gonadotropins. These hormones release the pituitary gland to stimulate the ovaries. And I have to take tests several times. Only in the case when the level of hormones reaches a high state, it becomes known exactly about the extinction of the function of the ovaries. Then we can say that the initial period of menopause has come.


Climax is a normal and natural condition, you do not need to see a doctor.

During this period, the body has to experience numerous failures and disruptions in the hormonal system. Such circumstances can cause cancer of the uterus. That’s why you can not ignore the specialist, and you can consult him and supervise. All changes in health, even the most insignificant, should be notified to the doctor. It is he who will be able to figure out what are the symptoms of menopause, and what – the symptoms of other diseases.

Menopause is the cessation of the menstrual cycle.

Medicine says that menopause can be divided into three main periods. First, in the premenopause, the functions of the ovaries gradually weaken, this lasts for several years. Menopause is directly the last menstruation. After it comes postmenopause, which refers to the activity of the female body after the last menstruation. All these time intervals refer to menopause. In other words, the menstrual cycle can still last, not one year, but the climax has already come.

Climax means the end of sexual intimacy.

Sexual desire gradually decreases with age, both in men and in women. This is due to a change in the level of sex hormones. The common symptom of this period is the dryness of the vagina, which can affect the intimate life. But, despite such changes, menopause does not lead to the end of sexual life. Some women in general begin to feel freer, believing that they are naturally protected from unwanted pregnancy. Dryness can be reduced by lubrication, and sexual desire is based not only on physiology. Psychological factors – depression, stress, physical illnesses and problems in a relationship can affect an intimate life at any age.

During sex menie, sex becomes less sensitive.

In intimacy, the main thing is emotional and psychological attitude of partners. During the menopause, a woman does not feel very well, she develops psychological discomfort. Yes, and glitches in the work of the hormonal system lead to partial dryness of the vagina. These circumstances do not have the best effect on sexual relations. But it is only necessary to overcome psychological problems and begin to apply emollients prescribed by the doctor, as the level of satisfaction from sex will return to the previous level. Work on this will have to both partners.

Smoking has no effect on menopause.

Tobacco use strikes the vascular system, which is fraught with the formation of thrombi and the deterioration of metabolic processes. Smoking women have poor digestibility of estradiol, a natural active hormone produced in the ovaries. It is to be expected that in men who smoke women, menopause will be worse.

Full women are better tolerated menopause.

This is not true. The human fatty tissue produces estrone. This estrogen is not very active, it has low resistance. It is able to slow down metabolic processes, therefore, in full women, menopause will be more severe.

You can not fight the menopause with hormone replacement therapy.

Many women do not dare to use such means, believing that they can grow a beard or mustache. This myth emerged back in the 1950s, when such drugs appeared. However, they were a completely different level. At the present time, natural estradiol is synthesized, which is easily digested and has no side effects. Usually, consumers have distrust in synthetic products, but trust in natural ones. In fact, natural names are those estrogens, whose formula fully corresponds to the natural female. Some American drugs of the first generations, even on the basis of “natural” estradiol, are already banned today. The product was synthesized from the blood of pregnant mares and was indeed harmful to female health by its side effects.

Breast cancer can develop during menopause.

Statistics confirm this statement. To a woman does not become part of sad reports, you need to regularly check your mammary glands, do a mammogram. So the ailment can be quickly identified. It is recommended for women after 45 years to undergo such examination once a year.

When the menopause work of the genitourinary system does not change.

During this period, many women experience incontinence. Changes in the genitourinary system come in a couple of years after menopause. All mucous in the body, including not only the vagina, but also the intestines, as well as the bladder, depend on estrogens. They are mostly in the vagina. Dryness in this place and will be the first sign of the onset of menopause. Another result of the changes will be dysfunction of the bladder. Bunches will no longer be as elastic as the pelvic muscles. This will result in urinary incontinence. Hormone therapy, as well as special drugs that restore urethral function, can help women. Sometimes you have to resort to surgical treatment.

Removal of reproductive organs can help in the fight against menopause.

About 10-15 years ago, if a woman aged 40 years complained of unusual bleeding, the doctors advised her to remove the reproductive organs. Now gynecology is guided by operations that preserve the organs. And even in the premenopausal period, when the myomatous nodes are removed, doctors try to keep the uterus. When it is removed, there will be a post-hysterectomy syndrome due to ovarian ischemia. This operation will stop the ovarian artery, which will worsen the functioning of the organs of this system. And modern surgical technologies have become different. Increasingly, preference is given to endoscopic surgery. The incisions of the anterior abdominal wall for surgery on the appendages or ectopic pregnancy look wild.

In the menopause, only medications can help.

In this difficult period, the quality of life can be improved without medication. One can not begin to think that life ends and it must be lived. We should spend time with pleasure, breathing deeply. We must diversify our lives, doing hobbies, communicating with friends and family. And you can improve your health directly with diet and exercise, acupuncture and manual therapy, yoga and meditation. If necessary, you should go to a psychologist or a psychotherapist. They believe that each such case is individual. A woman needs a special approach and her own attitudes of well-being.

Menopause begins with hot flashes.

A hot flash is a sudden feeling of warmth that is poured in the upper body for five minutes. This is really a common early symptom of menopause, but every fourth woman does not feel it at all. Where more traditional symptoms are fatigue, insomnia, changes in libido.

Menopause will lead to weight gain.

To old age, many men and women discover that it is increasingly difficult for them to maintain the desired weight. At the time of menopause, there is usually a set of mass. But it’s not only the climax and hormones that are to blame. At this age, the lifestyle changes, heredity is included, as well as the biological factors associated with aging. Minimizing such consequences can be due to a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. At the same time it will help reduce the risks of various age-related diseases, such as dementia and osteoporosis.


With menopause, all women experience discomfort.

Most women during this period in one form or another experience unpleasant changes in their body. But according to surveys, about 16% of study participants did not feel any of the main signs of menopause. Many women noted these phenomena in a mild form. And most of the signs take place in the first two years after the onset of menopause.

Menopause leads to depression.

According to some studies during the menopause, 10-20 percent of women report a sharp fluctuation in their mood. Some studies have attempted to identify the relationship between the onset of menopause and depression. It turned out that there is no direct evidence for this. In women after the onset of menopause, in fact, the highest rates of depression in comparison with other age groups. But the onset of this period is accompanied by unpleasant sensations, insomnia, which leads to depression. In itself, biological changes in the body do not cause it. In any case, regardless of the causes of depression, you should contact the doctor in this case.
