Menopause marks the end of a woman’s reproductive life. Most women begin their menopause between the ages of 45 and 55. In some special conditions, some women would experience early or premature menopause before 40 years old. It might cause significant hormonal changes (decreased estrogen level), thus changing them psychologically and physiologically at an early age.

 Benefits of menstruation

Why do people often say that late-onset menopause results in a longer life expectancy? Here’s why.

Menstruation should be acknowledged as a positive aspect of a woman’s life. When you have your menstrual cycle regularly, it keeps your hormones balanced. Here are some benefits of having your period:

  • It makes you more beautiful or attractive
  • Your skin will look soft and smooth
  • Sleep better at night
  • Ensure healthy ovaries
  • Able to enjoy another level of sexual experience 
  • Boost your metabolism 
  • Cleanse and flush out toxins naturally

The benefits mentioned above prove that period slows down the aging process of a person. Every month, having menstruation increases iron loss in the body. Hence, it reduces the risk of stroke and heart diseases. Besides having menstrual cramps and migraines, getting your period every month is not a bad thing.

Disadvantages of early or premature menopause

Early menopause usually is due to autoimmune conditions and genetic conditions. What would happen if your menopause came earlier than expected? You will notice various changes in your body, this includes:

  • Having rough and dry skin
  • Vagina dryness that can cause painful sexual activity
  • Mood swings 
  • Anxiety attacks 
  • Decrease of sexual drive
  • Obesity

Women with premature menopause are prone to develop heart problems, osteoporosis, ovarian cancer, and other diseases due to the decline in estrogen. Early menopause is unavoidable in some situations. Women should take care of their bodies by taking effective action to prevent it from happening. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.
