PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH MENOPAUSE
1. Menopausal Periods :-
Usually the symptoms of menopause last for a short time. The level of estrogen in females after menopause naturally remains low. This can affect many parts of the body, including the sexual and urinary organs, the heart, and the bones. So in that sense, the changes of menopause will be life long. But eating right, exercising, and making other positive lifestyle changes can help a woman feel great and live a long, healthy life after menopause.
2. Less Sexual Desires :-
Many women feel that their sexual desire decreases during the time of menopause. In most of the cases, the cause is physical. For instance, because lower estrogen levels sometimes cause physical changes in a woman’s sexual organs, having sex may become uncomfortable or painful so it is important to find out whether there is a physical cause for lack of desire. For some women, taking hormones called androgens can help restore sexual desire.
Some women find that sexual desire changes because of how they feel about themselves during menopause. Counseling and support groups can help women learn strategies for coping with the physical and emotional changes that occur during menopause.
3. Pain During Intercourse :-
Causes of painful intercourse may be when there is not enough moisture in the vagina or when the tissue lining the vagina becomes fragile because of lower estrogen levels in the body. A number of methods are available to relieve pain during intercourse. It may sound surprising, but frequent sexual activity is one of the most effective remedies for vaginal dryness. Other remedies include taking a warm bath before intercourse or using lubricants.
Long-acting vaginal moisturizers are also available, and can provide extended relief. Vaginal creams containing estrogen are very helpful in relieving the symptoms of menopause, including vaginal dryness.
4. Some women do experience swollen or tender breasts,
bloating, nausea, and sometimes even a blue mood. These are called PMS-like symptoms Some of these symptoms are linked to mild water retention, and may be relieved by a mild diuretic. Other things that can help include:
Reducing salt intake
Increasing exercise and activity
Avoiding caffeine and chocolate
Taking herbal revitalizing medicines, which improve Vigour & vitality
5. Leakage of urine during Laugh & Cough :-
Some females have problems with bladder control after menopause begins. This happens because of the muscles that surround the bladder and hold the urine inside become weaker when estrogen levels are low. Fortunately, simple exercises – known as Kegel exercises – can strengthen these muscles. To perform a this, contract the pelvic muscles as if trying to tighten or close the vaginal opening. Hold the contraction for a count of three and then relax. Wait a couple of seconds and repeat. Fast exercise of Kegels (squeezing and relaxing muscles as quickly as possible) can also help. Performing several Kegels a day (try for a total of 50 per day) can markedly improve bladder control – and may even enhance sexual pleasure! Taking herbal medicines for this can also help maintain the tone or strength of pelvic muscles.
6. Effect of Menopause on lifestyle :-
Menopause is a natural part of life, not a disease or a health crisis. However, menopause may occur when many other changes are happening in your. For instance, making sure that you exercise and eat right can make a real difference in how you feel and can even help prevent some of the long-term effects that are linked to estrogen deficiency (like heart disease or osteoporosis).
Physical changes do occur with menopause and with aging. But healthy living and a sense of purpose in life can minimize the changes that happen during this period.
7. Weight Gain :-
It may be linked with menopause. These are the metabolic changes during and after menopause. The metabolism begins to slow during the early to mid-30s. This change occurs slowly, so it may take a while for the impact of eating habits to affect weight. It is important to make a sensible, nutritious diet and healthy behaviors, such as getting enough exercise, a goal for life.
8. Forgetfulness :-
Many menopausal women have problems with short-term memory – like forgetting the common things like location of eyeglasses, clothes , skipping appointments they didn’t remember, or losing the end of a thought when speaking or writing. These may be due to a busy lifestyle and/or stress at home or work. Notably, several medical studies have shown distinct differences in memory in women who have active ovaries producing estrogen or are taking estrogen replacement therapy compared to women with low levels of estrogen due to menopause.
