Symptoms Of Menopause

QUESTION: What are the most common symptoms of menopause?

ANSWER:

Night sweats, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, accompanied by an irregular menstrual cycle, are some of the most common symptoms of menopause. Menopause is a normal life stage that is common to all women as the childbearing years come to a close. Menopause symptoms are associated with a decrease in estrogen production in a woman's body. Some women will experience a gradual lessening of menstrual flow, while others may have heavy periods of bleeding followed by light spotting.

In addition to the more common symptoms of menopause, some women experience the following:
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Itching and dry skin
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short-term memory impairment
  • Joint pain
  • Weight gain
  • Incontinence
  • Discomfort during intercourse due to thinning of the vaginal wall
Most women experience symptoms of menopause somewhere between the mid-40's and late 50's. Most doctors agree that a woman, who has not had a menstrual period for at least one year, is considered to be nearing the end of menopause. Because many of these symptoms may be indicators of other physical or emotional problems, it is best to consult with your doctor if you believe that you may be experiencing the symptoms of menopause.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
