How I look at Menopause
Menopause is not something that happens overnight, and it definitely keeps you wondering if this is really what is going on with your body. The first signs are very minor, and you most likely will not even know you are going through this event.
I guess the first sign that I personally experienced was the lighter monthly periods, sometimes only lasting a day or two, and even sometimes skipping a month here and there. After a year or so of having these symptoms, it started turning into the opposite. My periods went from being very light to being very heavy with terrible abdominal cramping, and irritability. It was worse when I would first wake up in the morning, and it got to the point where I was afraid to stand up to get out of bed the first day of my cycle.
As far as night sweats or chills, I didn't get a lot of these symptoms, but there were a few times that I would wonder what was going on when all of a sudden I could feel myself feeling hot all over and my forehead would be covered in sweat. This happened once or twice and I figured it had something to do with menopause because I am not usually the type of person that sweats for no reason.
When I would talk to the doctor about it, he would say all the things I was feeling were normal and that I couldn't consider myself post-menopausal until I had gone a whole year without having any signs of a period. Every time I would think I had approached this plateau, I would get an unwelcome surprise.
Menopause does not have to be the end of the world. You can look at it as a good thing, as you will never have to buy those annoying packages at the stores again. You can go more places and not have to worry about being embarrassed if this stranger decided to visit unexpectedly. In all honesty, I stay prepared even though it's been almost a year since my last stranger's visit, but that's the type of person I am.
Just because you go through menopause doesn't mean you are an old person. You are still the beautiful woman you always were and your confidence will show through. Women are strong creatures and we endure many hardships in our lives. This is just another chapter in our lives that we will all have to go through at one time or another. It is best to learn to deal with it head-on, and know that there are others going through the same. It does not make you any less of a woman.
If you are going through menopause, talk to your doctor if you have any concerns, or talk to your mother, or a close friend about their experiences and what helped them to get through the different stages that you will go through. Some people have a harder time than others, and I think a lot has to do with your whole outlook on the situation, so make the most of it, and continue to do the things that make you happy, and you will enjoy this new change.
My Journey Through Menopause
They say that menopause can occur any time after 40, though mine wasn't that bad it was still at the embarrassingly young age of 49. Just to clarify what I mean by menopause, a medical dictionary would describe its main 'symptom' as not having had a period for a year or over i.e. someone who has missed their period at least twelve years (and are sure they're not in some weird extra long pregnancy) is classed as going through menopause, after which they are post menopausal.
In my menopause the worst symptom by far which I suffered from was the night sweats, simply because they stopped me sleeping properly, which had so many adverse effects on my social and working life. Fortunately I went to see a doctor and found menozac just in time to win me a promotion at the office.
Another less than pleasant thing which I have have come to associate with my menopause (as well as the lack of sleep it caused) was how irritable I was. Literally every person who even sneezed near me, would have their heads bitten off, metaphorically of course. I remember one time, on my lunch break, somebody asked me for a napkin and I ranted to them for about thirty minutes in which somehow I had gotten onto the topic of mortgage payments. But again Menozac really helped greatly in terms of my 'rage' as it was described by my husband.
I know I may have made it sound like menopause could be the worst thing that just happens to occur in every woman who ever will live, however there are some advantages to it. For one you never have to worry about any little miracles anymore, yes it defiantly true that your libido may drop post menopause. But I can honestly say that some of my best sexual experiences have been after menopause.
Another odd thing which is handy about menopause, is that you won't have to shave half as often as you did pre menopause. I used to shave probably about once a month when I was younger. Now, its only really needs doing about once every three months, which as you can imagine bears with it a nice amount of savings on razors and such.
On the other hand a really bad thing that came with my menopause was the stupid amount of weight gain. I went from a 12 to an 18 in about 5 to 6 months. A little tip if this does happen to you; DO NOT GET RID OF YOUR CLOTHES!! I donated pretty much all of mine to charity shop, only to buy them all back a few months later after I had dropped the weight.
To conclude this little prelude into my menopause, menopause is a natural part of every womans life and therefore it is not a thing to be embarrassed about, and indeed its nothing to get worked up about (although no would blame you for doing so). However if you do feel that it becomes to much for you, I would defiantly recommend going to see your doctor, I did and was put on menozac straight away and frankly that was all I needed to get by.
My 2 cents on Menopause
I am a women and I was suffering from Menopause. Menopause is not something that happens overnight, and it definitely keeps you wondering if this is really what is going on with your body. The first signs are very minor, and you most likely will not even know you are going through this event. The same kind of thing also happened to me also. The period of woman's life called "menopause “occur at the age of 45.Health issue for instance can result in "menopause" earlier, even as earlier in her thirties. Because everyone is different "menopausal “activities can differ. Very few women will experience no symptom at all while others suffer greatly. Doctors told me that he reduction in estrogens, testosterone and progesterone hormones that occur is responsible for unpleasant symptoms commonly associated with "menopause" and process can last anywhere from 7 to 10 years on average. I will share with you my ways to ensure that you can control it and not result in the total misery. The most important is to find the right method for controlling menopause. It is very essential to find the correct type of products to control the "menopausal"symptoms.But with so many variations in symptoms found it very difficult to find the right product. When I was suffering from Menopause many symptoms occured, but normal symptoms that occurred to me were like headaches, night sweats, often causing insomnia, night flashes, hair loss, weight gain, irritability and vaginal dryness were some of the normal symptoms that happened with me. Some other symptoms were are like heart beating, palpitations, aching joint and muscles, increase in appetite and dizziness were some other symptoms experienced by me when I was suffering from Menopause. At least 3 out of 4 woman have experienced the hot flashes(which include redness and sweating of skin).There are about 90% of woman that gains weight. I also used some natural remedies for Menopausal symptoms and modern medical methods. But doctors told me these methods risk in breast cancer and other diseases. But then I founded the most effective way to control it is by using Menozac which is without any side effects, and I find it very good for controlling the Menopause in comparison with other methods. I am 100% satisfied by it.
Phtoestrogens was method that was told to me by doctor. Doctor told me that it will reduce night flashes and skin redness but there was only 1% effect of it, and they have many side effects. I also used to take green tea and bioperine which helps in the weight loss and helps a person to lose weight. But this does not also work more effectively and quickly.
I also used herbal remedies. Many natural ingredients help in reducing the night flashes and sweating. The benefits of blach cohosh are that it helps to reduce the hot flashes and night sweating due to its estrogenic effects. There are other remedies also that help to reduce night flashes like licorice roots; chaste berry and red clover extract are other remedies. But I found them also very less effective and they also have many side effects.
My friend told me that Vitamins and minerals helps to replenish substance that gets depleted due to hot flashes and thus helps women to control the symptoms of Menopause. Also it can reduce the symptoms of menopause. Vitamin E also helps in the overall reduction of hot flashes. .
Menopause caught me unawares, I had not given it a thought, but began to observe changes in my body functioning that I had never experienced before. My menstrual cycle was still regular and the same as always, so I never thought to associate the changes with menopause.
The first strange thing I noticed was that my head (yes, my scalp) started sweating profusely when I worked outdoors, especially when I did gardening. I had never been one to sweat much, so this was really strange. The sweat sometimes literally dripped off my face onto the ground as I bent over the plants. I felt fine and thought it was really odd, but did nothing about it at that stage. I also noticed that I was more aware of the summer heat than I had ever been.
I am definitely going to try what you suggested on your website... Menozac
