Menopause is a natural process, not an illness. It is the time of life when a woman stops ovulating and menstruating. At this time, the ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Other glands should take over some hormone production. Menopausal symptoms can begin around fifty and last for approximately five years, however, this may vary. A woman who has had a hysterectomy and has had both ovaries removed usually goes through menopause immediately and it can be quite severe, especially if the other glands are unable to produce hormones. Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, sweats, anxiety, headaches, moodiness, vaginal dryness, dry skin and hair, and insomnia. The individual may also be at risk for developing cardiovascular disease or osteoporosis. For cardiovascular disease, please refer to the Cardiovascular Disease section; for Osteoporosis, please refer to the Osteoporosis section of this guide.
