There is Life After Menopause

By Sheron Bell

By the year 2030, 1.2 billion women in the world are expected to be 50 years old and above. And whether we like it or not, we’ll all be a part of that aging population sooner or later.  

Everyone gets older everyday. There’s no escape from old age no matter who you are or where you live. With old age come some inevitable physical changes that form part of what is known as the menopause.  

Menopause is the price women have to pay for living longer. It’s a natural part of the aging process. The word menopause literally means the physiological cessation of the menstrual cycle. But it is not simply the end of a woman’s period. Menopause is a phenomenon which involves the shutting down of a woman’s reproductive functioning.  

The symptoms of menopause can range from mild hot spells at night to constant sweating day and night. Some women spot for a few months while others bleed heavily for years. These symptoms are caused by hormonal imbalances and not necessarily estrogen loss. They are also related to diet, lifestyle and genetic factors. To avoid these symptoms, many women try different treatments. Unfortunately, most of these so-called “cures” don’t work and create even greater hormonal imbalances.  

The good news is that like puberty, menopause will end sooner or later. Most women get relief in two to five years but in some the symptoms of menopause can persist for more than 10 years. But don’t fret. There are a few things you can do that will help. Adjust your diet, get some exercise, and get enough sleep. A simple detox program can help flush out harmful of toxins that have accumulated in your body for years. Taking a good multivitamin supplement can also do wonders.  

Still, for many women, menopause is not the end of life. A 1998 Gallup survey sponsored by the North American Menopause Society showed that more than half (51 percent) of American women between the ages of 50 and 65 who had reached menopause said they are happiest and most fulfilled now as compared to when they where in their 20s (10 percent), 30s (17 percent) or 40s (16 percent). The same poll revealed that 16 percent of women said their sexual relationship had gotten better since menopause while more than half (51 percent) said it had remained unchanged.  

Think of the number of highly successful, gorgeous women now in their 50s like Kim Basinger, Oprah Winfrey, Vera Wang, Diane Sawyer, and Goldie Hawn to name a few, and you get an exciting new look of menopause. These women are saying that 50 is the new 30.  

These women are defying the menopause stereotype and shifting the public’s perception. They are sensual and accomplished celebrities and no one really cares whether or not they’re menstruating. So stop for a moment and think of the women you admire most and chances are they are not twenty or even thirty something. These are menopausal women who have changed the world and will do it again.
