Do you suffer from disruptive hot flashes (intense and sudden waves of heat accompanied by excessive sweating)?
Did you know?
Menopause is defined as having no menstrual period for one year. The age you experience it can vary, but it typically occurs in your late 40s or early 50s. Menopause can cause many changes in your body. The symptoms are the result of a decreased production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries.
Are you experiencing uncharacteristic mood changes (e.g. sadness, irritability, etc.)?
Did you know?
Hot flashes are the most prevalent symptom of menopause, with about 75% of women reporting having them. Both the day and the night might have hot flashes. A few women may also develop mood swings or arthralgia, a discomfort in the muscles and joints.
Do your breasts feel much more sensitive or tender than usual?
Did you know?
During a hot flash, you'll likely feel your body temperature rise. Hot flashes affect the top half of your body, and your skin may even turn red in color or become blotchy. This rush of heat could lead to sweating, heart palpitations, and feelings of dizziness. After the hot flash, you may feel cold.
Do you suffer from vaginal dryness or painful intercourse?
Did you know?
You might suffer fewer heat flashes if you stay away from triggers. These could include drinking beer or coffee, eating spicy food, experiencing stress, or being in a heated environment. Being overweight and smoking may also make hot flashes worse.
Has your desire for or enjoyment of sex decreased?
Did you know?
Your bones' calcium content may change when estrogen production declines. Osteoporosis, a disorder caused by major losses in bone density, can result from this. You may also become more prone to fractures of the hip, spine, and other bones as a result. In the first several years following their last period, many women have rapid bone loss.
Has your complexion gone through noticeable changes (i.e. drier than usual, unwanted facial hair, acne, etc.)?
Did you know?
Changes in your hormone levels may cause you to gain weight. However, aging can also contribute to weight gain. To help you manage your weight, put an emphasis on eating a balanced diet, exercising frequently, and engaging in other healthy activities. Being overweight can increase your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions.
Do you feel more tired than usual or have difficulty sleeping?
Did you know?
The symptoms of menopause vary from one woman to another, even in the same families. Ovarian function declines at varying ages and at varying rates. You will therefore need to handle your menopause on an individual basis. It's possible that what worked for your mother or closest friend won't for you.
Have your periods become irregular (i.e. skipped periods, heavier flow, etc.)?
Did you know?
For the treatment of hot flashes and the prevention of bone loss, a number of hormone treatments have received FDA approval. The benefits and risks vary depending on the severity of your hot flashes and bone loss, and your health. These treatments might not be appropriate for you. Talk to your doctor before trying any hormone therapies.
Do you have difficulty concentrating or remembering things?
Did you know?
Heart-related conditions may arise during menopause, such as cardiac palpitations or dizziness. Decreased estrogen levels can prevent your body from retaining flexible arteries, which can impact blood flow.
