Menopause Q & A

When does menopause happen?

Menopause happens when you go one full year without your period. When you reach menopause, your ovaries no longer release eggs (ovulate), ending your ability to get pregnant.

Though it feels like menopause happens suddenly, this life transition occurs in stages:



Perimenopause is the transitional stage leading up to menopause. During this stage, your hormone levels fluctuate, causing an irregular menstrual cycle and many of the symptoms associated with menopause — hot flashes, mood changes, and fatigue. 

This stage of menopause can last several years. 



When you stop menstruating, you’re in menopause. 



When your period stops, you enter the postmenopause stage of life. At this stage, you should experience improvements in your menopause symptoms. 

What type of symptoms can I expect during menopause?

Menopause affects everyone differently. For some, menopause causes mild symptoms that they barely notice. For others, the symptoms are so severe it disrupts daily life.

Some of the symptoms and health issues you may experience during perimenopause and menopause include:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Low libido

All of the symptoms that occur during menopause are due to changes in hormone levels.

How does acupuncture help menopause?

Acupuncture relieves many of the symptoms you experience with menopause. The ancient therapy uses thin needles to rebalance the flow of your body’s life force, or energy. 

The needles activate your nervous system, triggering the release of chemicals that ease pain, boost mood, and give you a general sense of calm. You may find acupuncture sessions for menopause ease your hot flashes, stabilize your mood, and improve your sleep.

Acupuncture is one of the primary treatments at Zen Attitude Acupuncture.
