Even the most serious and global changes begin a bit at a time. This applies to weather, history and even a human body. And just the same, menopause sets in unnoticed at first. A woman may not suspect anything yet, and a serious restructuring is already in full swing in her body – hormones are changing, the activity of the glands is “stormy”, and reproductive function is decreasing. During the initial stage of menopause – it is called premenopause and begins in 40−45 years – the symptoms are not so pronounced. Many often are unaware of their new condition and can miss the onset of the climacteric changes ignoring symptoms of early menopause.
Meanwhile, this is very important, because if you recognize the menopause symptoms in time and take measures, then, the manifestation of many signs and symptoms of menopause can be, if not avoided, then reduced. So, here are the main calls that every woman after the age of forty should pay attention to.
What are the symptoms of menopause?
Irregular menstrual cycle
Of course, in half of the women, it is already unstable. How to understand that this time is not just a malfunction, but the beginning of a new period of life?
- A female should be wary if the intensity of the blood loss has become stronger or, conversely, lesser.
- Between periods more than 60 days have passed.
- Your age is 45 years plus or minus.
This is a condition when you suddenly blush, then covered with sweat. In some women, the temperature may slightly increase – there is a feeling of heat and lack of air. Everything is obvious: you have symptoms of menopause at 50 in women.
Exercises of breathing deeply will help to cope with such unpleasant menopause signs. Talk with your doctor about special treatments that can help alleviate the signs and symptoms of menopause.
Hormonal changes can make it hard to remember things. You can often lose your keys, forget about some meetings, it becomes more difficult to focus on business. But, be patient – when a period of “hormone swings” settles down, memory problems will also pass.
The onset of hormonal changes causes such menopause signs as hyperhidrosis – increased sweating. This often leads to an increase in annoying body odor, even with enhanced hygiene. Choosing clothes with natural, breathable fabrics will help reduce odor.
The first violin is played by hormones. When they change, the emotional background also changes. What to do? Sign up for meditation courses. Remember about the eternal rescue “count to ten.”
Vaginal dryness menopause symptoms
Since the onset of premenopause in a woman’s body drops in estrogen levels, the skin becomes thinner and drier. This affects lubrication in the genital area, which can cause itching and pain during sex.
The lack of estrogen, which is the cause of hot flashes and night sweats, interferes with restful sleep. In addition, during menopause, the absorption and metabolism of magnesium, a mineral that is responsible for muscle relaxation, is impaired.
