WOMEN’s HEALTH – a Perspective
Women play an important role in every human life as we have heard behind every successful man there is a woman. Healthy is a strong pillar for every home, city, and nation. Women’s health is an example of population health.it is very essential for women to be strong and healthy, she has to play a lot of roles in her life which requires energy and good health. Woman’s life consists of many milestones. The onset of first menstruation in life is called menarche. It occurs anywhere between the age of 10 years to 16 years and hormones play a vital role in a woman’s life. The important hormones are growth hormones, estrogen, and insulin.
MENOPAUSE is yet another milestone which means permanent cessation of menstruation at the end of the reproductive life due to the loss of ovarian follicular activity, it is called as climacteric period, it is the phase of an aging process during which a woman passes from the reproductive to the non-reproductive stage. It marks the end of a woman’s fertility. The average age of menopause is from 47- 55 years. During the menopause, the predominant hormone estrogen falls in its level, prolactin, and luteinizing hormone.
