This is the beginning stage of menopause. Reproductive hormones, estrogen and progesterone are slowly declining.
Can last up to 6 years or more.
Usually occurs in your 40s.
Periods become more unpredictable and less frequent.
Menopause, or “the change of life”, is part of a natural biological aging process that affects all women. During menopause your body undergoes significant transformations, driven largely by a shift in the levels of sex hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone.
Menopause is a deeply personal experience, so you will go through the “big change” in your own unique way. Some women have symptoms that range from mild to debilitating. Others just breeze through it, enjoying a new sense of freedom and energy.
Factors that influence the severity of your menopausal symptoms include genetics, diet, lifestyle, stress levels, general state of health and the use of prescription drugs.
Menopause, or “the change of life” is part of a natural biological aging process that affects all women. Menopause can begin in your 40s or 50s, but the average age is 51.
This is the beginning stage of menopause. Reproductive hormones, estrogen and progesterone are slowly declining.
Can last up to 6 years or more.
Usually occurs in your 40s.
Periods become more unpredictable and less frequent.
You are considered to be in menopause when you are period-free for 12 straight months, (and your doctor confirms this is not due to another medical condition).
The average age of a woman at menopause is 51.
Estrogen levels continue to drop, causing certain natural changes in the body, which may include hot flashes and night sweats.
Occurs any time after menopause and lasts for the remainder of your lifetime.
Postmenopause usually begins in a woman's 50s.
Estrogen levels continue to drop and you may continue to experience symptoms similar to those you had during menopause.
Hormones control virtually every important function. They turn children into adults, regulate metabolism, ignite passion, affect the aging process, and keep our bodies healthy.
With hormones playing such crucial roles, it's no surprise that hormone imbalances can trigger an entire spectrum of symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleeplessness, irritability, low libido, and joint and muscle pain.
You sometimes experience a sudden warm
feeling that spreads through your upper
body and face and a flushed appearance
with red, blotchy skin.
You sweat during sleep and your clothing
and sheets are soaked. You sweat even
when your bedroom is not hot.
You have trouble falling asleep at night, and
you feel irritable or sleepy during the day and require
large amounts of caffeine just to stay awake.
Your hands, wrists, feet and knees feel
stiff, your muscles are sore, and you
feel pain doing ordinary tasks.
You are easily annoyed or frustrated
by people; you get angry and lash out
at others for no apparent reason.
You have less desire for sex or intimacy
and have low or no sex drive.
Your clothes no longer fit and you feel bloated,
tired and have less energy. Your weight increases
even though you have not changed your eating habits.
Researchers once believed that menopause began when the body exhausted its supply of ovarian follicles.
This was proven wrong. In most cases, the ovaries still have enough follicles that are capable of producing hormones. What's lacking is the stimulating signal from the body's neuroendocrine system ordering the ovaries to produce hormones.
There is a growing body of evidence that indicates the problem actually begins in the brain. Specifically, the part of the brain called the hypothalamus, also known as the "master gland" because it is a control center that regulates countless functions, including hormone production.
The hypothalamus receives nerve signals from your body. They travel along the neuroendocrine pathway alerting the hypothalamus when more hormones are needed. It’s the hypothalamus that tells the ovaries when to make estrogen.
The hypothalamus has many functions, but none are more important than the role it plays in hormone regulation.
Acting like a hormone "thermostat", it constantly monitors nerve signals coming from the body.
These signals travel along the neuroendocrine pathways to tell the hypothalamus when more hormones are needed.
When it gets these messages, the hypothalamus takes action by sending signals that tell different parts of the body to make hormones.
Unfortunately, thermostats can lose their sensitivity.
With age, the hypothalamus and neuroendocrine system become less sensitive to signals coming from the body. When fewer signals are received by the hypothalamus, fewer signals are sent to make hormones. So over time, the ovaries produce less and less estrogen.
This drop in hormone levels is what triggers menopausal symptoms. It’s a cycle of diminishing function that gets worse over time.
There’s a word for all this: "aging".
Menopause is not a disease, but a natural stage in the aging process. The symptoms of menopause are essentially signs of aging.
That’s why the only truly comprehensive way to treat menopause is through anti-aging: reversing the age-related changes that cause menopausal symptoms in the first place.
This is exactly what Amberen offers.
Amberen is the only product that rejuvenates the function of the hypothalamus.
In clinical studies, Amberen helped relieve hot flashes and night sweats, as well as other common symptoms of menopause, without any known side effects.

The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one personâ€™s claims against Lunada Biomedical and may not preside over any kind of representative or class proceeding against Lunada Biomedical. You acknowledge that this class action waiver is material and essential to the arbitration of any disputes between the parties and is nonseverable from the agreement to arbitrate claims. If any portion of this class action waiver is limited, voided, or cannot be enforced, then the partiesâ€™ agreement to arbitrate shall be null and void.
