What menopause is ?
Menopause is an inevitable occurrence like death. It happens when a woman has missed her period for 12 consecutive months. It is a stage of life when women stop producing estrogen and progesterone hormone in their ovaries. These two hormones control menstruation and ovulation. Women are no longer fertile at that time. It is a genetic issue when a woman starts experiencing menopausal symptoms. It can come at late 40 or late 50. Research says 51 is an average age of starting menopause.
When the estrogen level starts lowering, a woman starts to feel several unpleasant symptoms. This transition period is called Perimenopause. It can last for a few months or a few years. When ovaries stop releasing eggs permanently, menopause has occurred officially.
Women go through an extreme hormonal change at Perimenopause period as their ovaries are no longer able to produce more estrogen and progesterone. At the end of this stage, ovaries stop producing these hormones totally. In this transition period, women can experience several uncomfortable symptoms. Not all the women have the same symptoms and discomfort during the pre-menopausal period. Some common symptoms include:
- Hot flashes
- Changes in sexual desire (libido)
- Irregular menstruation
- Muscle cramps and pains
- Vaginal dryness
- Excessive night sweating
- Weight gain
- Excessive hair loss
- Sleep disorders
- Behavioral changes
- Breast Sagging
- Mood swing
- Lack of concentration
- Frequent urination
These signs are very natural and at the end of Perimenopause period, these symptoms will go away naturally. Postmenopausal women are prone to osteoporosis, heart diseases, and weakened vision. With a changing lifestyle and medication, women can have a better life after menopause.
Other causes of menopause
It comes naturally after a certain age. But in many cases, it comes before time. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hysterectomy are the reasons why a woman gets an early menopause.
Menopause has an elongated list of symptoms, and the symptoms vary from woman to woman. While some have a moderately short and painless perimenopause phase, other women may suffer years of uncomfortable symptoms.
Doctors treat individually according to the symptoms. Relieving from hot flashes, night sweating, and mood change, a woman can get special medication. Otherwise, hormone therapy is a common and effective treatment to ease the discomfort of menopause as well.
For balancing estrogen and progesterone level, hormone therapy is a good choice. Doctors treat this imbalance by prescribing pills, creams, gels or vaginal rings. Treating depression, doctors suggest antidepressant medicines more commonly.
Some research says a hormone therapy increases the risk of breast cancer and heart diseases though there is not enough proof for that. There are plenty of options to stay fit, healthy, and cheerful after menopause. Yoga, meditation, deep breathing are the great options for having a good sleep and for easing stresses.
Some lifestyle changes can offer really good things to a menopausal woman. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and social work help one to combat the troubles. ‘Focus On Living Well’ is the key to a better life.
Sex after menopause
It is just a thought that postmenopausal women are no longer able to get sexual pleasure. Due to a drastic physical change, many women feel a lack of sexual desire at that time. Vaginal dryness is another reason for not to feel interested to be intimate with her partner. Most of the women feel ashamed to face their partners. But you are not the only one who is going through this time. Explore yourself more extraordinarily in front of your partner. You are the only one to help you come out from this stressful situation. There is a word ‘emotional need’ rather than ’biological need’. If there is an emotional need, you must feel the biological need automatically. Thus, be energetic to grow an emotional desire of spending good times with your intimate one.
