Perimenopause / Menopause

  • There are about 37.5 million women reaching or currently at menopause

  • The average age of menopause is 51 years, however, there is a wide range distribution from the age of late 30’s to mid 50’s

  • The average life expectancy is 84 years old, which means that women spend around half of their adult life as a post-menopausal female

  • 3500 women enter menopause every year

  • Symptoms may begin up to 15 years earlier

  • Most women are affected in more ways than they realize

  • Most women DO NOT EVER “get over” or “get through” menopause. While symptoms may abate, the invisible consequences can be dire, including urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, dry skin, loss of muscle tone/balance, poor libido or sex drive which may impact relationships, bone loss, or osteopenia or osteoporosis.

  • Perimenopause can last 2-10 years prior to final menstrual cycle.  However, this still creates imbalances despite continuation of menses.
