From puberty on, a woman’s body is constantly changing. The onset of menopause, whether as a result of ageing, cancer treatment, surgery or otherwise, can trigger significant changes in the body’s physical, mental and emotional health.
Technically, menopause is defined as the occurrence of your last menstrual period. This occurs when the balance of your reproductive hormones changes and your ovaries no longer release eggs. Perimenopause is the stage before natural menopause when women may begin to experience the usual symptoms of menopause.
Menopause can impact your sex life at both a physical and mental level. Symptoms such as vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse and a reduced libido can cause distress and can exacerbate the mood swings and feelings of anxiety which may also accompany menopause.
Each woman will experience menopause differently and the management and treatment of perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms should be tailored to each person.
