Menopause At The Age Of 43 Years?
Is age 43 premature menopause? … menstruation does not come for 6 months. And menstruation comes after taking hormone medicine. Is that a sign that they are not yet menopausal … Thank you in advance
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Menopause is a condition in which a woman has not experienced a menstrual cycle for 12 consecutive months. Menopausal period usually occurs around the age of 45-50 years. Before menopause, a woman will experience a period of periodic changes towards menopause, which is called the premenopausal period.
All changes that occur are generally influenced by changes in the female hormonal system, where the female reproductive system has decreased function and does not produce female hormones that support the regulatory system and the menstrual cycle. Thus, some accompanying complaints before menopause can be experienced, such as:
1. irregular periods
2. less menstrual blood
3. dry skin
4. breasts begin to sag
5. gain weight
6. mood changes
7. sleep disorders
8. the body feels warmer
9. Vaginal drier
10. Libdo decreases
In connection with your question, the existence of complaints of no menstruation for 6 consecutive months may not indicate menopause, because the definition of menopause is not having menstruation for 12 consecutive months. However, the complaint that you feel might lead to a premenopausal period with all its participants.
Given your age is still 43 years old, then the possibility of approaching menopause can also occur. So, the condition that you feel might not be an early menopause, where early menopause is defined as the occurrence of menopause at the age before 40 years. So, if you currently undergo hormone therapy, then this condition will support the menstrual cycle during the period of your hormone therapy.
All you need to consider, the premenopausal or menopausal period that comes earlier is often influenced by the general health condition of the body, the healthy lifestyle that is lived or the diet that is consumed. Lack of exercise activity, excess weight or body weight that is not ideal, and health problems experienced can trigger complaints during the early perimenopause. Therefore, evaluate every healthy lifestyle that you live and the patterns of daily activities that you live, so that it can support better health and stamina.
And if you have complaints related to this menopause, you can consult your obstetrician again. Thus, your obstetrician can provide the appropriate input for you.
