Understanding Menopause Symptoms

in Symptom

For a woman who is reaching her late forties or early fifties, how would you recognize the menopause symptoms? During this period, there would be noticeable changes both physically and psychologically. Most doctors do not usually give their patients with a complete list of the symptoms. Therefore, I have compiled a list of the most common symptoms so you could prepare on how to deal with them.

There are actually two types of symptoms aside from the actual menopausal symptoms.  

These are premenopause and perimenopause. Each period has its own set of symptoms that varies from individual to another. While it is always best to consult your doctor on how you could best deal with them, you better equip yourself with ample information on each symptom and determine within yourself if you're already experiencing them or not. In that way, you and your doctor could better plan what steps to take and which menopause symptoms to deal with first.  

Some may experience most of these menopause symptoms or for others, they may experience it a little later or recognize it. Aside from hormonal imbalance, these menopause symptoms can be signs of health issues, which could be results from poor quality of sleep, lack of exercise, excessive alcohol consumption, excessive intake of birth control pills and stress.  

Most of these menopause symptoms are considered to be "today's problem" or normal by most women who experienced. However, if you have two or more of these symptoms, it is advisable to reconsider your health situation and consult your doctor. Many women once they reach forty would usually complain of aching joints, muscles pains, allergies, arthritis, breast tenderness, craving for sweets or food that are rich in carbohydrates.  

Depression is very common in this stage and it is therefore advised for women to involve themselves in as much activities as they can so they would avoid from being more depressed and left to themselves. There would be noticeable hair growth in the face, gallbladder pain, hair loss, vaginal dryness and yeast infections.  

Those are just some of the most common menopause symptoms that women in their later forties or early fifties will tend to face. It would be helpful to help them get a proper and balanced diet, excess and get the right amount of sleep. Eating nutritious food and taking supplements will also aid in helping them become better equip in combating the challenges they will have to take.
