Discussion 3: Reproductive health

Equilibrium and change occurs in living as well as non-living systems. When cats become too warm, they pant to immediately release heat and to cool down their core. Changes also occur on a longer time scale in living beings. One such change is to the hormonal balance that ebbs and flows in most creatures, a balance that regulates appearance, reproduction, temperature, and mood. In humans, these changes are most obvious during the onset of adult hormonal changes, also called puberty, and the onset of post-reproductive life, known as menopause in women and andropause in men. Though a natural part of the aging process, it is one that impacts individuals differently. As described in your textbook reading this week, aging may be a combined effect of the body’s planned obsolescence, where our bodies progress through a natural sequence of changes and accumulated accidental injuries, where the challenges of life lead to irreversible damage.

Menopause is a natural part of the aging process and is due to changes in levels of a woman’s reproductive hormones. These changes require re-equilibration, which often results in the symptoms that women may experience when they are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. Though most frequently discussed with females, it is not limited to women only. Hormonal changes and therefore re-equilibration occur in males as part of the aging process as well.
