Menopause Homeopathy Treatment at HomeoEclinic: Dr. Greeva Mankad


Peri-menopause: Are you around? How does it affect your monthly cycles?

Menopause refers to the end of your menstrual cycle. Once you’ve gone 12 months without a period, you’ve reached menopause.
The average woman goes through menopause at 51 years old. The time period before menopause is called perimenopause.
Perimenopause symptoms occur for 4 years, on average. However, perimenopause can last anywhere from a few months to 10 years. During this time, the hormones estrogen and progesterone are in flux. Your levels will fluctuate from month to month.
These shifts can be erratic, affecting ovulation and the rest of your cycle. You may notice anything from irregular or missed periods to different bleeding patterns.

During the perimenopause, ovarian function appears to be highly variable. Length of menses varies and anovulatory cycles become more common. Hormone levels may fluctuate widely during this time, and as estrogen levels decrease, the inherent protective effects of estrogen may also decrease.

Symptoms may include:

1. Spotting between periods : 

If you notice some bleeding that doesn’t require the use of a pad or tampon, it’s likely spotting.
Spotting is usually the result of your body’s changing hormones and the build- up of your endometrium, or uterine lining.
Many women spot before their period starts or as it ends. Mid-cycle spotting around ovulation is also common.
If you’re regularly spotting every 2 weeks, it may be a sign of a hormonal imbalance.

2. Brown or dark blood:

The colours you see in your menstrual flow can range from bright red to dark brown, especially toward the end of your period. Brown or dark blood is a sign of old blood exiting the body.
Women in perimenopause may also see brown spotting or discharge at other times throughout the month.
You may also notice changes in discharge texture. Your discharge may be thin and watery, or it may be clumpy and thick.

3. Shorter cycles:

When your estrogen levels are low, your uterine lining is thinner. Bleeding, as a result, may be lighter and last fewer days. Short cycles are more common in the earlier stages of perimenopause.
For example, you may have a period that’s 2 to 3 days or shorter than normal. Your whole cycle may also last 2 or 3 weeks instead of 4. It isn’t uncommon to feel like your period just ended when the next one comes.

4. Longer cycles:

In the later stages of perimenopause, your cycles may become much longer and farther apart. Longer cycles are defined as those longer than 38 days or so.
They’re related to anovulatory cycles or cycles in which you don’t ovulate.
Generally women who experience anovulatory cycles may have lighter bleeding than women who experience ovulatory cycles.

5. Missed cycles:

You may experience a missed cycle because of fluctuating hormones. In fact, your cycles may become so far apart that you can’t recall the last time you bled. After you’ve missed 12 consecutive cycles, you’ve reached menopause.
If your cycles are still making an appearance — however delayed — ovulation is still occurring. This means you can still have a period, and you can still get pregnant.
Anovulatory cycles can also create delayed or missed periods.

6. Overall irregularity:

Between long cycles, short cycles, spotting, and heavy bleeding, your cycles during perimenopause may be generally irregular.
They may not settle into any discernible pattern, especially as you get closer to menopause. This can be unsettling and frustrating.

What you need to do is…

Consider keeping a journal to track your periods. Include information such as:

    • when they start
    • how long they last
    • how heavy they are
    • whether you have any in-between spotting
    • Take notes about abnormal bleeding, pain, discomfort, or other symptoms you’re experiencing.


When to seek an investigation?

    • Extremely heavy bleeding that requires you to change your pad or tampon every hour or two
    • Bleeding that lasts longer than 7 to 8 days
    • Bleeding — not spotting — that happens more frequently than every 3 weeks
