Many of us are familiar with the portrayal of the concepts and challenges related to the Menopause.
Menopause can be viewed as the mirror image of puberty; a hormonal shift that takes 6-10 years to transition through. It is the permanent end of menstruation and fertility, defined as occurring 12 months after the last menstrual period.
The “3rd Age” is the time given to the Perimenopause, usually starting in late 30s and moving through your 40s, when hormones start to change and you may feel like you don’t recognise your body or the way it is behaving anymore.
Perimenopause and Menopause are not a disease, nor are they each an event; they are a process, a journey of transition and transformation which can last between 8 and 16 years.
When your “personal body bank account” is in credit, it’s a time you should move through well in body, mind and spirit.
