What to Expect After Your Transition To Menopause
Perimenopause refers to what occurs prior to menopause in women. This phase generally begins around four to ten years before menopause; which is generally accepted to be the end of your fertile years. Generally speaking, once you enter menopause you will begin to notice a few menopause symptoms such as changes to your menstrual flow or mood swings.
The sooner you are able to recognize these changes, the sooner you can begin treating them. Menopause is a very natural part of life that most women go through without any difficulty. But it does occur for a particular group of women who have hormonal imbalances and or polycystic ovaries.
Some menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes
Can be effectively dealt with by the use of prescribed medications such as Effexor or Paxil. But there are more serious cases where these medications are not enough, and a doctor will recommend the use of hormonal replacement therapy, or hormones.
One of the most common forms of menopause symptoms is menopause-related hot flashes. They occur as soon as the ovaries begin to cease functioning and as the levels of certain hormones in the woman’s body begin to drop. While some women experience these symptoms gradually as they move toward menopause, many only experience menopause hot flashes on an irregular or unpredictable basis.
The majority of women experience menopause hot flashes in the morning hours when they are rising, while others experience them at night as the temperature drops. In addition to being extremely uncomfortable, these hot flashes can be extremely physically dangerous because they can cause a woman to faint or even pass out if they remain for too long. However, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the number of hot flashes a woman has and also to avoid experiencing them altogether.
Other menopause symptoms that can occur are similar to those of a menstrual cycle
For example, a woman may start experiencing vaginal bleeding that is either thin or watery inconsistency. As the level of hormones in the body begins to decline, this vaginal bleeding becomes heavier and may even cause a woman to feel pain during intercourse.
As time goes on, other symptoms of menopause will likely occur, and these will include things such as night sweats, dryness of the vagina, and painful sex. Many women start noticing a change in their menstrual cycles as early as the first few months after starting menopause that is why they are called the menopausal transition.
The periods that they are experiencing are much less frequent than what they would experience normally, and many women find that they are no longer in the normal part of their menstrual cycle. There are many women who have experienced severe menopause symptoms and found that they could no longer get pregnant.
Because this is considered to be a sign of menopause, it will not be classified as a symptom of menopause until all of the other symptoms associated with menopause have been addressed.
Another one of the symptoms that can occur after the menopause transition is vaginal dryness
Vaginal dryness can be caused by two different things. First, it can be caused by the decrease in estrogen levels that occurs after the transition. The other cause of vaginal dryness is the actual vaginal dryness itself. With decreased estrogen levels there is less moisture in the vagina, which can cause vaginal dryness.
One of the main reasons for the decrease in estrogen levels is due to lifestyle choices. Many women choose to use tobacco products and caffeine in order to keep regular with their periods. This decreases the estrogen that the body is producing and as a result causes menopause symptoms.
Changing your lifestyle and avoiding the things that you know you shouldn’t be doing will reverse the menopause process. You will also find that you will have better energy and you will be able to sleep better at night. Some menopause symptoms that you can expect include night sweats and hot flashes.
These are both due to the reduction of estrogen that the body is producing. You will also notice that you are losing hair and your skin can become dry. It will take time for these symptoms to subside but they are completely normal and will pass with time.
You should start experiencing some of these symptoms sooner rather than later so make sure that you are taking care of your health and that you are following all of the instructions given to you by your doctor.
