Pre-menopause and menopause
How to switch laps with (pre) menopause?
The female ability to generate life is both wonderful and challenging. We witness many changes in the body, learn to manage emotions, understand how we behave with each menstrual cycle, face (if we wish to) pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum, and finally experience the end of the fertile cycle, menopause. It is the cycle of life and of course we cannot avoid it, but we can certainly alleviate symptoms and make this transition period smoother and more harmonious.
What is premenopause?
Pre-menopause, as the name implies, is the transition between the fertile age and menopause, the time when the body stops ovulating completely. All this happens due to significant hormonal changes, the main one being the inconstant estrogen production, which results in the irregularity of the cycles, aligned with changes in the production of progesterone and FSH, both of which are fundamental in the menstrual cycle.
How does a woman know she has entered premenopause/menopause?
The main symptom of perimenopause is the irregularity (in flow and in duration) of her menstrual cycles. This happens at different times, but mostly from the age of 40 or later, from 45, although it can occur between the ages of 35 and 40. The duration of this premenopausal period also differs between women - for some it may last only a few months, for others several years.
During this period, a woman is considered fertile, and there is a possibility of becoming pregnant, although ovulations may be less frequent. It is assumed that the body has entered menopause when there is an absence of menstruation for at least 12 months.
Some common symptoms:
Irregular menstrual cycles (shorter or longer).
More abundant/severe menstrual flow
Hot flashes - sudden hot feeling, that can happen several times a day or a month, and even during sleep
Insomnia or changes in sleep pattern
Decreased vaginal lubrication
Increased need to urinate and greater susceptibility to urinary infections
Dryer/dehydrated and more sensitive skin
Mood swings, more agitation, depressive symptoms
Bone loss, resulting from decreased estrogen
Increased cholesterol levels and high blood pressure
Weight gain, resulting from the slowing of the metabolism
