Video: Menopause Symptoms
Suddenly the temperature rises in the room, but no one else seems to notice. Lately your children and your husband are upsetting you more than usual even if they do nothing out of the ordinary. You get up during the night and you can't go back to sleep. Many women happen to enter the menopause stage without even knowing it. The symptoms can be overwhelming and can somehow bring them back to the teenage years. Although there are some that do not have much change, most women should learn how to deal with the symptoms of menopause.
Stress is something that accompanies most women, whether or not they have menopause; therefore it does not hurt to learn how to handle it. Meditating for 15 minutes each day, exercising regularly, talking about your concerns, and doing things you like all contribute to lowering your stress level.
Changes in body temperature are one of the most uncomfortable symptoms during menopause. Dress in different layers of clothing that you can take off, learn to breathe gently, drink water continuously, lower the temperature on the thermostat in your home when possible, take a vitamin E supplement, avoid very hot places and spicy foods will help deeply to control the heats.
Before and after menopause insomnia becomes very common. Hot flashes and hormonal changes are to blame for bad nights sleep, which can also affect your mood. To counteract insomnia, it is advisable to lower the temperature of your room, take a bath before bed and consult your doctor about alternatives such as estrogen, sedatives and antidepressants.
If you come to the room without knowing where you were going or you have forgotten to pick up your children a couple of times from school, you can perform stress control techniques, sleep at least 6 hours a day, eat fresh and healthy food, establish Acronyms to remember street names or associate activities with names that are easy for you to retain. It is good that you take a notebook and write down in it the things that you must remember. Consult your doctor before consuming memory supplements.
Vaginal dryness and incontinence
These two problems usually come hand in hand and are very uncomfortable for women who suffer from them. Using a water-based vaginal lubricant, taking vitamin E, consuming strawberry, blackberry and blueberry juices and consulting with your doctor about the possibility of using vaginal estrogen can be good alternatives to counteract these symptoms.
