The occurrence of menopause can be recognized when a woman has not menstruated for more than twelve consecutive months and is unable to become pregnant naturally. Let’s look at the uncomfortable symptoms of it.

Sleep

Sleep can be a serious challenge during midlife, women start to have trouble getting a good night’s sleep. Sometimes you might not be able to fall asleep easily or you might even wake up too early. Don’t think too much about the night sweats, but they might wake you up at night. You might find it difficult to fall back to sleep when you are awakened by these symptoms at night.

Sex

You might notice that your interest in sex might drastically reduce! You might find your feelings about intercourse are changing. But for some women it can be the other way around, you might actually feel sexier and feel free after menopause. If you don’t get your periods after one full year, you can no longer conceive. But remember, you are still exposed and at risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), for example, HIV/AIDS or gonorrhea. The risk for STDs increases if you’re having sex with more than just one person or even if you have a relationship with a person who has other partners. If so, you should make sure your partner will use a condom every time you have sex.

Mood Changes

You might tend to feel more irritated or moodier around the time of menopause. Even scientists don’t know why it happens. Mood changes can be a result of family changes, children growing up, aging parents, depression, feeling tired or stress. You can check out the programs available for menopause from your nearest doctor.

Your Body Seems To Be Weird

Your waist might get larger. You might gain weight by gaining fat or even loose muscles. Your skin might get thinner as well. You might even have memory problems, and your muscles and joints can feel achy and stiff. Are these changes in the body a result of a loss of estrogen or related to aging? Experts still don’t know the answer to that question.

Chills

Most of the time women have reported to have hot flashes, they are brief and sudden, these brief small periods of intense heat increase in your chest and your face, but the cold flashes might occur. Some time, shivering and chills might occur just as a hot flash fades away, causing you to experience a sensation of hot and cold.

Loss Of Breast Fullness

The amount of reduced amount of estrogen can cause the connective tissue and skin of the breast to become less hydrated, making the breasts less elastic. When breasts are less elastic, the breasts lose their fullness and firmness and can develop a looser appearance.

Other Symptoms

Some other symptoms might be pains and aches, heart palpitations or headaches. Since menopausal symptoms can be caused by the changes in hormone levels, it is unpredictable how often you will get hot flashes and how severe it will be. You can talk to your doctor if those symptoms are irritating and interfering with your everyday routine. The depth of the severity of these symptoms will vary drastically vary around the world and even by ethnicity and race.

Menopause usually starts between the ages of forty-five but can develop before or even after this age. The good news is that for most women medical treatment is not required!
