What is Menopause?

Menopause is defined as the point in time when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. As women approach their 40s and 50s, they may start to experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms that signal the onset of menopause. Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It occurs when the ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone, leading to a range of physical and emotional changes. Our team at American & U.K. Ozonesthetics is committed to helping women manage these symptoms and improve their overall health.


Stages of Menopause

Menopause is preceded and followed by distinct stages as explained by our doctors at London Aesthetics:


This transition phase can begin several years before menopause. During perimenopause, hormone levels fluctuate, leading to irregular menstrual cycles and symptoms like hot flashes and sleep disturbances.


This stage is marked by the absence of menstrual periods for 12 months. Symptoms may intensify during this period due to further hormonal decline.


The years following menopause are considered postmenopausal. Symptoms may continue for some women, but typically they stabilise. However, the reduced levels of estrogen can increase the risk of certain health conditions, such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
