Menopause can be a troublesome period of life. The fact is, while the average age for menopause is around 50 years, perimenopause can begin anytime from a few years to a decade earlier.

The symptoms depend on hereditary pattern of your mother. If you smoke or consumption your of alcohol is excessive, your menopause or perimenopause will probably start a year or two earlier. During these years, our oestrogen levels are on a fluctuating decline and this may cause various symptoms. As oestrogen level falls, it triggers your brain to release other hormones such as LH and FSH that result in increased ovulation.


There is misconception that premenopausal symptom worse as you get older. In reality your hormones are fluctuating as they did during puberty.When you are entering perimenopause, mood swings and changes in menstrual cycle may be noticed. Periods may be heavier, irregular, stop and continue after some time.

Many women experience unexplained weigh
t gain around the waist (in lower abdomen), when they reach their forties. This may be due to combination of dwindling oestrogen and general slowing down of metabolism according to age.

The patient was a 46 years old lady. She was diagnosed as having an ovarian cyst and was advised surgery. She was also suffering with varicose veins and symptoms of menopause such as night sweat and hot flushes. She had irregular periods; felt insulted and angry on small issues. She could not tolerate tight clothing.
I prescribed Lachesis 200. She started feeling better and the report from the gynaecologist showed that the cyst had cleared up.
