Dr. David Samadi: What Is Menopause?

     You are between the ages of 45 and 55. You begin to feel hot flashes. You are moody around your family. Lastly, you have gained some weight. What does all this mean? I could mean that you have begun the process that a woman’s body goes through when she is at the end of her reproductive years. This is called menopause. There are two different stages of menopause, as explained by Dr. David Samadi in a recent article on http://www.nydailynews.com/. Those two stages are perimenopause and menopause.

Dr. David Samadi was born in Iran. At the age of 15, he and his little brother moved to London. Dr. David Samadi and his brother eventually ended up in the United States, where he graduated from high school and received his MD from Stony Brook School of Medicine, in New York. He has fellowships and has lead medical teams in proctology, oncology, urology, and others. In 2012, he was the highest paid doctor in New York, earning an incredible $7.6 million annually.

Perimenopause is the stage where your body is getting prepared for menopause to begin, that is, hormone production slows down. This deduction of hormones signals your body to start making changes and to start menopause. This stage lasts for twelve months. This is when the symptoms of hot flashes, etc, can begin.

After perimenopause happens, all the symptoms, weight gain, hot flashes, etc., go into full swing. This stage is the actual menopause. Menopause starts once a female has gone through 12 consecutive months having no menstrual cycle.

75% of women report having hot flashes. All hot flashes are characterized as having a feverish feeling over the body, though women explain their own experiences differently. The other symptoms, aforementioned, are not as common as the heat flashes but they still happen to some women.

Dr. David Samadi says that at some point in life, all women will go through this. It is normal and women should not worry about menopause. Once you go through it completely there is a comfort on the other side.
