Menopause is the phase in the life of a woman in which the natural interruption of menstruation occurs, due to the decrease in the production of hormones by the ovary. It takes place approximately between 45 and 55 years.
Many women do not experience any discomfort during menopause. Others, however, suffer from different disorders such as headaches, insomnia, dryness of the vagina and skin, hot flashes or hot flashes, among others.
In the latter case, this happens because fluctuating hormone levels dilate the blood vessels, they affect the body’s natural thermostat which causes sudden hot flashes. A typical hot flash comes and finishes in 30 minutes, with a maximum temperature rise of 8 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius), which lasts three minutes.
