Nobody looks forward to menopause. With hot flushes, mood swings, and weight gain soon approaching it is best to be prepared and know as much as possible about menopause.
The fact of the matter is that menopause is inevitable. The best solution is to be prepared and face it head-on.
Knowing the facts can make dealing with menopausal symptoms a more manageable task.
It is important to note that every woman might experience menopause a little bit differently than the next.
But here are 8 facts that every woman should know…
8 Facts that can help you conquer menopause:
It is only officially menopause when you have gone a year without a period.
Periods can be irregular and inconsistent leading up to menopause. It is only officially classified as menopause when you have gone a full year without menstruating. When you stop menstruating completely, your ovaries stop producing estrogen.
The average age for menopause is 51 years old.
Most women will have their last period sometime between the ages of 45 and 55. But the results of various different studies from around the globe conclude that the average age is about 51 years old.
Menopause before 40 is considered early menopause.
Early menopause is usually due to something like genes or a medical condition. Medical conditions that can contribute to early menopause include an abnormal thyroid or a rheumatic disease.
If you have ever gone through chemotherapy it can also be a big contributor towards early menopause.
If your ovaries have been removed as part of a medical treatment, you will start with early menopause immediately.
The years leading up to your last period are called perimenopause.
Your estrogen levels can already begin to fluctuate in your 30s and 40s. This means that your menstrual cycles may be longer or shorter than they usually are. They may also become heavier or lighter. Sometimes you might even skip a period.
The soonest visible symptoms are usually hot flashes and weight gain.
These are also probably the most well-known menopause symptoms.
Hot flashes are sudden intense episodes where your body is overrun by a feeling of warmth or heat.
It is also common for this to happen whilst you are sleeping. It usually results in profuse sweating. Hence it is then appropriately called night sweats.
Other symptoms of menopause include:
- Sleep problems
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood changes
- Memory problems.
Some women experience these symptoms during perimenopause. Others don’t experience them until after they’ve stopped menstruating.
Some symptoms, such as hot flashes and memory issues, may go away after you reach menopause.
Menopause leads to bone loss.
Osteoporosis is a massive problem amongst women with menopause. This is due to the loss of estrogen.
Osteoporosis is a silent and serious disease. Luckily it is preventable.
You can do this by:
- Increasing the calcium in your diet
- Add weight-bearing exercise to your routine
- Check your vitamin D levels
- Ask your doctor to check your bone density
The risk for heart disease rises after menopause.
This happens due to the drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen offers protection against heart attack and stroke.
Your risk is even higher if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure and aren’t active. This is another reason to make healthy habits a top priority.
Lifestyle boosts can help you feel better.
Exercise helps to slow the loss of bone after menopause and keep your weight in check. It also increases natural endorphins, which could help with mood changes and irritability.
Other healthy habits, such as eating well, are also crucial at this time of life. We recommend the Manna Diet as a healthy lifestyle-type diet.
