Go samagana le seemo sa Menopause le Dr. Tebogo Deo – Gynecologist & Obstetrician

As one grows up, you slowly but surely approach different stages whereby the body reacts in a certain way to those stages. Both men and women have their different stages that they go through which affects their bodies somehow. Women eventually get into a stage called Menopause, a stage defined as the time when there have been no menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months and no other biological or physiological cause can be identified. It is the end of fertility, the end of the childbearing years.
During menopause and perimenopause, some women take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), such as estrogens, progesterone or progestins, to relieve climacteric symptoms, and to prevent discomfort caused by diminished circulating estrogen and progesterone hormones. However, HRT also has risks. It can increase the risk of breast cancer, heart disease and stroke. Certain types of HRT have a higher risk, and each woman's own risks can vary depending upon her health history and lifestyle.
This stage requires proper management because while some women may go through it almost without noticing, it is generally accompanied by a cohort of more or less important and embarrassing disorders, also depending on the woman’s state of health, her psychological state and her psychosocial context.
