Canberra Menopause Centre

Find out how menopause may affect your life and what The Canberra Menopause Centre can do for you.

The transition to the menopause can vary in length depending on the woman but troubling symptoms can occur 1-3 years before the last period . In the postmenopausal phase of a woman’s life symptoms like hot flushes can continue for the first couple of years and beyond.

 

Unfortunately some women can experience hot flushes and night sweats well into their 60’s. For many women, these changes will have little impact on their lives; however, some women may experience symptoms severe enough to affect their health and well-being, and disrupt their lives. Some women might feel anxious about reaching the menopause and mourn the loss of their fertility and youth.

Pinpointing Perimenopause

Is it perimenopause? Find out some of the obvious (and not-so-obvious) symptoms leading up to menopause.

Some call it a transition. To others, it's a stage. But no matter what view you take, perimenopause is the period in a woman's reproductive life that begins some years — anywhere from 2 to 10 — before menopause. Diana E. Hoppe, MD and gynecologist, says, "For most women, perimenopausal symptoms show up in their 40s, although for some, the signs may start as early as their 30s."
