Menopause or final menstruation marks the end of reproductive fertility in women. It is preceded by hormonal changes over ten years or more as oestrogen (main female sex hormone) concentrations gradually decline and follicle stimulating hormone concentration increases. Depending on the overall health of the ladies, the menopause may set in between 44-50 years of age. Symptoms are erratic bleeding in respect to frequency, duration, consistency and quantity of flow. The symptoms are also associated with sexual and psychological behaviour, which can vary, and become so intense as to require medication. The period of declining sexuality, infertility and hormonal alteration around menopause is known as climacteric.
The acute symptoms of hormonal alteration include, vasomotoric symptoms such as hot flushes, vertigo, attacks of perspiration, headache, organic symptoms such as vaginal dryness, breast atrophy, urethritis, incontinence and frequent urinary tract infection; and mental symptoms include tiredness, loss of libido, irritability and depression. Many of these problems are being successfully managed by homoeopathic medicines. The long term symptom or effect of menopause is bone-resorption and increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Hormone replacement therapy carries lots of side effects and therefore should be limited to exceptional conditions. Klimaktolan? offers an effective alternate therapy for management of the symptomatic complex of menopause.
