Important Things You Need To Remember About Woman’s Body During Menopause

When a woman’s body hits menopause,
things that have never happened before start happening and while these
changes might stress women out, they are actually as normal as they can
be. There is actually no strict pattern of symptoms that every woman
feels and it is always variable, depending upon numerous factors in a
woman’s body.

If you do not know what menopause means, allow me to be of assistance.
Menopause basically means that the time has come to say goodbye to your
period and your hormones by at least 15%. All of this sounds like a
pretty big deal because it kind of is- which is why the symptoms can be
observed before a woman effectively goes into menopause and after she is
well into it.

Let us talk about what happens before menopause.

The period before menopause is known as the pre-menopause and it comes
with its own bag of symptoms. It is the time when your estrogen levels
first begin to fall and you may experience symptoms like: pretty intense
mood swings, pain during coitus, dryness in your vagina, hot flashes
(which is essentially a feeling of a hot wave running through your
body).

You might also face some issues when you are trying to fall asleep and
you might also feel the need to run to the bathroom more often, because
you always have to pee! Your mood swings might make you
ill-dispositioned as well, so look out for that. Now, though the
pre-menopause is a ringing bell for your periods to end forever, it is
not your menopause yet. It means that you might still get your period l
although it will be infrequent and irregular and most importantly, you
can still get pregnant so do not do away with protection.

With that out of the way, it is time to talk about what happens when you
go into menopause. You know you have definitely, for sure, hit
menopause when you do not get your period for more than a year, (this
does not apply to women who have not reached the age, so to say, so if
you haven’t had your period in a year, and you don’t think it is time
for the big M yet, see a gynecologist).

Menopause basically means two things: no periods and a huge fall in your
hormones, which ultimately means that one cannot get pregnant anymore.
There might be a few other symptoms like you losing your hair, gaining
some weight, finding it hard to focus and keep your attention in one
place, a turbulent libido, and a little body ache here and there.
Doctors say that women, on average, enter menopause at around 51 years
of age.

When you have gone into menopause, the time after that comes after it is
called the post-menopause. There is a significant fall in all your
hormones and this can cause significant health risks, like joint pain,
osteoporosis and so on. The key is to take good care of yourself!

Being a woman is a lot, but it sure is fascinating!
