Menopause, change of life

Menopause is not something I look forward to but since I am in now in my forties and will soon be approaching menopause, I want to be ready when it comes. I have heard stories from my mom and other women about hot flashes, mood swings, falling levels of the female sex hormones and the many physical and psychological changes when they reached that stage. They say hot flashes disrupted their days and night sweats kept them up so they were moody and tired the next day.

I've been doing several readings about it and taking notes on what and what not to do during this stage. There were articles about what food to eat and what supplements to take. Just like my mom and my mom-in-law, most women reach the menopause without seeking medical advice and taking any supplements. But to some, menopause can be severe or distressing, in that case, treatments are available.

I found a web site about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy which puts an end to hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, weight gain, mood swings, vaginal dryness and low libido. Taking into consideration that not all women are the same, their anti-aging physicians design individualized programs for each woman who suffers from early menopause symptoms, perimenopause, menopause, hormonal imbalance and severe PMS. Their hormone therapy and individualized treatment plan may include a combination of creams, gels, pills, patches, self-injections or pellet therapy. By the way, hormone therapy is also applicable for men experiencing male menopause.

If you are about to start your menopausal or post-menopausal years, being able to prepare for it can help you deal with this stage with grace, serenity and style. It is also important to have a talk with your doctor, so you both can decide which is best for you.

One of the advices I got was to stay relaxed.
It was one of the very best advices.

Accepting the symptoms of menopause as a normal thing all women go through made a real difference.

Prepare yourself well when you seek medical attention and therapy.
There's very recent research about the safety of medical intervention you really need to read first.

Have a nice weekend.
