The signs of menopause
Familiarize yourself with the signs of menopause before making assumptions.
Most women accept that they will experience menopause eventually, but many are uncertain as to how to recognize it when it does occur, while others are caught completely off guard when told they are in menopause. We want to impress upon you that this is important, because menopause carries symptoms that are similar to those of dangerous medical issues. It is important to familiarize yourself with the signs, and to be appropriately diagnosed by a physician. Lets take a moment to consider the most common early signs of menopause.
1. Hot flashes
This can describe whenever you feel hot, and start to sweat without any environmental factors causing you to heat up. Its purely hormonal and most commonly occurs during the night. You either find yourself waking up drenched in sweat or unable to fall asleep due to the sweats. Many women also report hot flashes during the day as well. They discover that they have less need for coats and sweatshirts, and experience more discomfort in close quarters with others.
2. Pain during sex
Sexual intercourse can become painful and/or uncomfortable before and during menopause. This symptom can be somewhat disturbing, and often sends women into their doctors office without suspecting menopause.
3. Changes in period regularity
For many women, this is the first indication that they may be experiencing menopause. If you are in your mid to late 40s and your periods have been regular in the past, when that pattern changes, you might be experiencing your earliest sign of menopause. Many women say they experience menopause around the same age as their mothers did. One might consider their age to be a benchmark for predicting your possible menopause.
4. Excessive urination
This can be similar to what women experience when they are pregnant. This can be a subtle symptom that many women fail to recognize.
Menopause does not happen overnight. The process can last for several years for some women. These are a few of the most common symptoms, but there is a myriad of others. Every woman is unique in her own experience. Many processes and changes in the body can be complex, and menopause is certainly no exception to that rule
