 We have been told about puberty, adolescence, and our menstrual period,

but what about MENOPAUSE?

It is estimated that as many as 6,000 US women reach menopause every day.

By the year 2020, the number of women who will be older than 55 years of age is estimated to be 46 million.  In addition, with the increase in life expectancy, more women will spend up to 40% of their lives in the postmenopausal stage.  With these alarming statistics, it is vital that we bring awareness to men as well as women.

 

Menopause is the time when a woman's menstrual period ends. Menopause is considered complete when a woman has been without her period for one year. Menopause can occur any time between ages 40 and 60. On average, it occurs at age 51.

By the year 2030, it is expected that there will be 1.2 billion women who are 50 years of age or older. That means there will be a large amount of females embarking on their journey through menopause.

With these statistics, regardless if one is peri (the time in a woman's life shortly before menopause), meno (the ceasing of menstruation) or post (the time after which a woman has experienced twelve (12) consecutive months without a period); it is in our best interest to connect with as many sister-friends as we can.

 

Here are a few facts:

Perimenopause can begin as early as your 30’s.

The average woman hits menopause around the age of 51.

Some women experience post menopause until around the age of 60.

Smoking increases your odds of early menopause.

80% of menopausal women suffer from hot flashes.

40% of menopausal women suffer from mood swings caused by hormonal dips.

Let’s not let the symptoms of menopause stop you for joining us in 2018 Lunch & Learn.
