Women often treat menopause as a disease, please understand that it is a very natural process of the body. You cannot stall it nor can you manipulate it. You can however reduce your symptoms with a healthy lifestyle.
The first sign of the menopause is usually a change in the normal pattern of your periods.
You may start having either unusually light or heavy periods.
Symptoms usually start a few months or years before your periods stop, known as the perimenopause, and can persist for some time afterwards.
Remember, you cannot interfere with your natural changes, do not take medicines to delay it. You can take holistic treatments to reduce the symptoms.
