Menopausal transition often begins between the ages of 45 and 55, usually lasting around seven years, but can also be as long as 14 years. Every woman experiences menopause differently. Some women may not experience any noticeable symptoms, while others may feel as if they are experiencing every listed symptom of menopause. 

Discuss your symptoms, family and medical history with your Pure pharmacist to find the best menopause treatment for you.


Frequently Asked Questions

The hormone changes that happen around menopause affect every woman differently. Some of these changes may lead to:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sexual problems
  • Mood changes
  • Forgetfulness
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Joint aches and pain

Women are usually in their late 40s or early 50s when the menopause transition starts. However, an earlier menopause can be the result of surgery, cancer treatment, or family genetics.

If you have had a hysterectomy, whereby both ovaries have been removed (bilateral oophorectomy), you will reach menopause right away. 

You can prevent hot flashes by avoiding known triggers, such as:

  • Spicy foods
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Stress

Keep a fan in your home or workplace and try taking slow, deep breaths when you feel a hot flash starting.
