Menopause Decoded:
Because Hormones Need Translators

Perimenopause, Menopause & Post-Menopause Explained.


About the eBook

You’ve heard of it, you even think you might be close to it, but what exactly is menopause?

Let us take you by our modern hand and give you back your power as we guide you through exactly what you need to know in this beautifully crafted 43-page book.

Menopause is a universal female experience and refers to the time when a woman’s reproductive years come to an end. It’s estimated that 25 million women globally go through it each year.

Menopause begins with perimenopause and culminates when ladies enter a new stage in their lives as their periods end known as post-menopause. This is why it’s often called ‘the change’ or the ‘change of life’.

In popular culture, the subject of menopause is still relatively taboo so women can find themselves completely blindsided by the arrival of perimenopause. Until it rears its head they may have only held – perhaps – a vague awareness to expect a few hot flushes in the distant future.

But there are 34 recognised symptoms of perimenopause we should be aware of as we move into our 40s.

In this eBook we guide you through exactly what you need to know.

Available in electronic versions.

This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.


Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
