Menopause is the transition of women from reproductive to non-reproductive state. Menopause brings many symptoms, and even some symptoms can appear 10 years before entering menopause.
Due to the decline of progesterone and estrogen, there is a disturbance in sleep. You can feel insomnia, mood swings and fibromyalgia (chronic muscle pain). A warm bath for a period of 20-30 minutes before bedtime can help you fall asleep more easily.
Gaining pounds happens in menopause and so you should work on that. Eat healthy foods, exercise, because the overweight is otherwise not healthy and can lead to diabetes and heart disease. To prevent this, take care of your weight.
Frequent mood swings
Mood swings are common in menopause, and many women become depressed. Therefore, get comfortable, doing activities you love, eat healthy and you will feel better.
Weakening of the bones
The hormone estrogen affects bone strength, but during menopause the body ceases to excrete this hormone. Therefore, the bones become fragile and brittle.
These hot flashes come in stages, and during menopause it is common that the body temperature is rapidly raised and lowered. To facilitate these attacks, avoid stressful situations, caffeine, alcohol and some drugs.
Menopause is a natural occurrence and you don’t need to worry about it. Just doing what you love and getting comfortable makes it easier to go through this period.
