Signs Of Menopause

menopause St. Simons Island, GA

Looking for common signs of menopause? It can be difficult for some women to know whether or not they have entered menopause. OBGYNs are health care professionals who can help women manage their menopausal symptoms.

About menopause

Understanding the signs of menopause is important, as these signs help let women when they are entering another stage in their life. According to Cleveland Clinic, menopause is the point when a woman no longer has menstrual periods for at least 12 months. While menopause is a natural process not requiring treatment, some women will undergo certain care in order to address one or more symptoms experienced.

Signs that let a woman know she is entering menopause

The list below includes some of the more common signs that can let women know that they are entering a new stage in their life, menopause.

Hot flashes

Hot flashes are considered to be the most common sign of menopause. When a woman experiences a hot flash, she will suddenly feel heat in certain places of her body, with the face, neck and chest being some of the more common places. Most women will also experience swelling, with many others experiencing red skin due to the hot flash, Additional hot flash signs include a rapid heartbeat, feelings of anxiety or depression and a chilled feeling once the hot flash begins to pass. When it comes to the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, every woman is different. This means there is no way to tell how frequent or how intense a woman's health flashes are going to be until she has them.

Urinary urgency

Urinary urgency is another sign that a woman is entering menopause. This sign is one that is caused by a thinning of the urethra lining, which is caused by a reduction in a woman's estrogen levels. Urinary urgency is a condition in which when a woman feels the need to urinate, she needs to do so immediately as it is difficult to hold the urine. The fact that a lack of estrogen also causes a woman's pelvic muscles to weaken, means that many women who are entering menopause will find it difficult to control their bladder as easily as they used to.

Emotional changes

Due to the changes in a woman's estrogen and progesterone levels when going through menopause, she will also experience various types of emotional changes. It is important for women to understand that these changes are not their fault and instead any emotional changes they experience are directly due to their menopause.

Examples of emotional changes include feeling depressed, feeling anxious, feeling irritable, feeling sad, feeling fatigued, feeling mad, having difficulty concentrating and experiencing an overall lack of motivation. For women who are experiencing difficulty dealing with these emotional changes, making an appointment with an OBGYN for treatment is a good next step.

Bottom line

Now that the above information has been read, it should be understood what some of the more common signs of menopause are in women. Because signs like hot flashes, urinary urgency and emotional changes can really impact women during their everyday lives, undergoing menopausal care can be very beneficial for women who are experiencing difficulty entering this new stage of life.
