What are the Causes and Symptoms of Menopause?

Menopause occurs twelve months after a woman’s last menstrual period and officially marks the end of her menstrual cycle. This usually occurs when she’s in her 40s or 50s. Though menopause marks the end of her fertility, it’s often accompanied by a number of symptoms which occur because of the decreased estrogen.

Low Progesterone

Low estrogen is not the only hormonal deficiency women might have to deal with. Another one is low progesterone, which presents as poor sleep. Progesterone is one of the hormones that help relax the brain. Low progesterone can occur as early as eight years before perimenopause. It’s also critical that progesterone levels are in balance with a woman’s estrogen. An imbalance can raise the risk of breast or endometrial cancer.


Perimenopause occurs about two years before the onset of menopause. Here, estrogen is relatively normal or (low-normal) but progesterone is low. In this stage, menstrual periods are erratic in terms of frequency and amount of bleeding. Brain dysfunction is also possible.

Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen dominance occurs when there is a much higher level of estrogen in a woman’s body then there is progesterone, creating an imbalance between the two hormones. This can lead to traditional symptoms and, in women who are genetically inclined, can increase the risk of breast or endometrial cancer. In the marketplace, there are two known sources of progesterone and estrogen. For many years doctor’s go-to source has been the urine of pregnant mares, which contains horse urine hormones. This kind of treatment is known as SYNTHETIC. Functionally, horse urine hormones will do the job for which they were prescribed. Because their structure is more complex than the estrogen and progesterone humans make, though, taking them for a long period of time increases the patient’s risk of getting breast or colon cancer.

On the other hand, though, more recently a method to extract estrogen and progesterone from plants, specifically soy and yam, was discovered. This extract is identical in structure to that of humans and are thus called “natural or bio-identical hormones.” These are available at compound pharmacies.

Natural or Bio-Identical Hormones are available at compound pharmacies.
