This really sounds implausible, but the truth is that we really don´t fully understand what happens during menopause and precisely why the menstrual cycle winds down.

The prevailing medical view of menopause is that when a woman runs out of eggs, she stops menstruating and goes into menopause.

Strangely enough, however, this is largely theory. The prevailing theory goes that a woman is born with all her follicles (from which eggs can be matured) already formed.

Of the millions of follicles present before birth, about 300.000 are present at puberty. With every menstrual cycle, even those cycles when ovulation is suppressed by birth control hormones, hundreds of eggs vanish.

Recognising the Symptoms

When only about 1000 eggs are left, ovulation rarely occurs, even though estrogen production may remain adequate for menstruation. Thus such women continue menstruating and are in a state of estrogen dominance. In other words, loss of fertility is due to the disappearance of follicles and their eggs rather than age per se.

In some women, the hypothalamus stops producing certain hormones (GnRH) presumably a genetically programmed change, whereas in many others GnRH and the pituitary hormones, FSH and LH continue being produced at regular levels and yet the ovaries do not or cannot respond.

So a woman of 38 years old would have a less possible chance of conceiving compared to a woman of 30 because she is releasing fewer eggs or none at all.

Menopause symptoms may begin as much as a decade before menstruation stops altogether, this is due to the increasing numbers of women who are having non-ovulating cycles beginning in their mid-thirties.

So if there is no ovulation the production of Progesterone is dropped dramatically. This is the time when women should start to use ProgesterAll to keep their hormone levels balanced.

The secret is to recognise the symptoms. Some ladies may have extreme symptoms, other women take it in their stride and don´t pay any attention to it. Man women don´t warrant a visit to the doctor at all.

Can ProgesterAll help me?

Natural progesterone is the term used to describe the hormone progesterone in its original state, bioidentical to that produced by the body. When used to supplement progesterone levels it is treated within the body exactly the same as natural hormones. The liver recognises it and identifies it.

It is important to differentiate between natural progesterone and the artificial forms of progesterone, known as progestins or progestogens. These are chemical based and are used in conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

While progestins perform in some ways like progesterone they are, in fact alien to the body, and the body will not recognise it as naturally occuring.

Of course a fact that is widely believed to explain the many reported side-effects associated with HRT. You may find this book of interest – Martin Walker – HRT Licensed to Kill and Maim

“Men-o-pause” may be a funny play on words but it’s no laughing matter to millions of women. When hot flushes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, depression, night sweats and memory changes are affecting your life.
