The term, 'menopause' refers to the physiological cessation of menstruation at a certain age, usually between 45-55 years, in life. Although the term is used to describe all the various symptoms that occur at this stage, the actual meaning of the word is just what it says - 'pause of menstruation'.
The symptoms of menopause occur mainly due to the changes in the various organs of the body as a result of decreasing estrogen levels.
Weight Gain: Many women in menopause or perimenopause, tend to put on weight at this time.
There is more deposition of fat around the hips, waist and buttocks. A good, low calorie diet and
proper exercises can keep this weight increase in check.
