Some women suffer from what is known as early menopause: the disappearance of menstruation and ovarian function before the age of 40, which results in the early loss of reproductive capacity among other things.
Recognise the symptoms
The average age of menopause is between 48 and 54 years, but some women go through changes before the age of 40. We call this premature disorder early menopause and it involves a significant drop in oestrogen levels and a loss of natural protection against diseases affecting other ages.
The first signs are irregular periods and difficulty getting pregnant, as well as typical menopause symptoms:
- hot flushes
- tingling and numbness of the extremities
- decreased libido
- mood swings
The treatment for menopause is primarily hormonal and you will still have a good quality of life. If you have any of these symptoms and are concerned, don't delay in making an appointment. We will be delighted to advise and help you.
