The mystery of the menopause

Fertility & Ovulation – Recognising the Symptoms

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 toes that when 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.

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 and be completely aware of the fact something is not right and then again, other women take it in their stride and let the symptoms continue, usually because they are not severe enough to warrant a visit to the GP. or practitioner.

                  Women Wellness Guide Special Feature Guest for August

                                              Victoria Senior – Make-up Artist, Model & Entrepreneur 

Happy August everyone! My name’s Victoria Senior, and I’m honoured and excited to have been asked to be featured in this month’s Women Wellness Blog!

I am a certified make up artist, who has a passion for top quality 100% natural skin care, because, in my opinion, good skincare is the basis for all great make-up. I love professional grade make-up products which are paraben free, therefore kind to the skin, yet are super highly pigmented and blendable. I offer a new makeup and skincare brand from the USA called LimeLife By Alcone.

LimeLife By Alcone has been the preferred make up of make- up artists in New York for 65 years and famed for being on the Hollywood film sets and on Broadway too. LimeLife has only just arrived in the United Kingdom 6 weeks ago.

During Peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause women´s skin changes a great deal, the pigmentation if different, they can experience dry skin and a patchy skin appearance. Taking care of your skin at this time of life is vital when you look good, you feel good. Victoria can help you learn about the products and how you can look good all year round. Make-up, Facial Products & Natural Body Care.

The difference is in the ingredients

The skincare is second to none and outperforms many far more expensive and renowned brands on the market today. Women are looking for a natural look and want to have great skin, and with LimeLife they can have super make-up and great skin, both facial and corporal, but without chemicals and harmful oxidants.

It takes less than 1 minute for chemicals from skin care products to reach the bloodstream, which is why we offer a super effective skincare range that is free from harmful chemicals, such as parabens and SLS.

The ‘LimeLife Glow’ starts with great skin, and our products work to heal, hydrate, and rebalance your own skin naturally and gently. This is such a natural approach to skin care and so different and more effective than other brands’ strip and replenishes process.

My own skin has changed immeasurably since I’ve switched to these products, and I’m receiving testimonials from happy customers that they are being complimented on their “Glow”

This professional grade make-up is a dream to use for both professionals and the woman at home as they are so easy to use, and the high pigmentation means that the make-up lasts all day, whilst giving a flawless finish. This incredible makeup and skin care formulas are all packaged in eco–friendly, customisable packaging, as this small family-owned company care very much about the environment in which we live.

If you would like some advice on our products and how to use them and how to colour match, then please feel free to get in touch with me, it can be quite a minefield if you don’t have someone personally helping you!  I am also very happy to forward you some skincare samples for people to try.

LimeLife will officially open in Spain in early 2019, but in the meantime, I can personally take orders for Spanish residents. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Coming soon – makeup and beauty tips for women of all ages!
