Several factors can influence the timing and onset of menopause. Things including your age when you had your first period, your dietary choices, use of contraceptives, drug, tobacco and alcohol use, BMI, and physical health1 all play a role in determining when you might enter this stage of life.
Some of the factors that influence when menopause will begin are within your control. You can always improve your diet, exercise more, and reduce or eliminate your consumption of drugs and alcohol. However, while these things are essential for longevity and optimal health, they will likely have only a nominal impact on menopause when undertaken later in life.
BHRT and Menopause
The menopausal transition typically begins between the ages of 45 and 55. It can last for up to 14 years2. Symptoms that are common during this time include:
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Vaginal Dryness
- Painful Intercourse
- Sleep Disruptions
- Brain Fog
- Anxiety and Irritability
- General Moodiness
Menopause can interfere with every aspect of a woman’s life, creating long-term physical and emotional disruptions. Fortunately, these symptoms are treatable through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)3.
BHRT increases estrogen levels in menopausal women, helping to decrease the symptoms of menopause and restore optimal comfort. It cannot, however, postpone menopause. Outside of lifestyle modifications, there is simply no way to delay the onset of menopause.
