Menopause and Perimenopause

MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Vadodara
Menopause and Perimenopause

The term menopause refers to the dearth of menstrual periods for a stretch of 12 months. Although the average age for women to attend menopause is 51 years, the range varies from 45 years to 55 years. It is this span of 10 years that is defined as perimenopause meaning “around menopause”. During this time, a hormonal shift affects the process of ovulation and menstrual cycle.

Common menstrual cycle changes during perimenopause:

While a normal menstrual cycle has a particular flowing pattern of progesterone and estrogen, perimenopause doesn’t show any such pattern. Spotting and irregular bleeding are often faced by women as a result. Other changes include very long or very short periods. There could be months when periods might not occur at all. Some other changes include sleep disturbances, urinary changes, night sweats, changes in sexual desire etc.

Abnormal bleeding-

Close to 25 percent of all women reports heavy bleeding during their perimenopause. Sometimes this condition is known as hypermenorrhea or flooding. The blood flow can be so heavy that even pads might not be able to contain it. Heavy bleeding might lead to anemia as well. At times there could be a feeling of faintness. If all these conditions prevail, it only indicates a loss in blood count. Some quick fix to excessive bleeding include intake of soup, thick juice etc. Intake of NSAID thrice a day also decreases the blood flow by a good 30-40 percent.

Prolonged bleeding is a bad sign and should not be ignored at any point. It is wise to visit a doctor or a healthcare professional to know more about the cause of bleeding. Doctors often suggest tests to understand the blood count and level of iron present in the body. Iron pills have been known to replace blood cells and fight anemia.

Other ways of treating heavy bleeding is progesterone therapy. If all else fails, a doctor might suggest hysterectomy. It is wise to explore a less invasive method before deciding to remove the uterus.

Hot Flashes-

A woman going through perimenopause bleeding often experiences hot flashes. This is a symptom where a woman might feel hot and sweaty all of a sudden. It is often followed by cold shivering.

Disturbance in Sleeping-

Approximately 20 percent of the women facing perimenopause reports sleep disturbances. Mostly, a woman goes to sleep at the right time but wakes up very early in the morning without getting any sleep throughout the day.

Vaginal Changes-

Excessive bleeding in the perimenopause phase can lead to vaginal walls becoming drier and thinner. There are instances where women report of wear and tear in the vagina walls leading to dissatisfaction during intercourse.

I have small vaginal opening due to which we cant do intercourse successfully. Please let me know about use of dilators or other means to widen the vaginal opening.

MSc-Psychology, MHSc-Reproductive and Sexual Medicine, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Vagina is a stretchable organ and no vagina in an adult is small for sex . What you are referring to as vaginal opening is hymen . Hymen in a thin sheet covering the entrance of vagina. It has a small opening. It gets ruptured usually at first sex with minimal pain with or without bleeding . Good number of girls fear pain at first sex and tighten the muscles around vaginal opening . So the problem is in the mind not in vagina. Psychotherapy along with vaginal dilatation is the treatment

Only follicular study by ultrasound can confirm whether you have ovulation on 14th day or not. If you have a 28 day menstrual cycle, then your likelihood for ovulation on 14th day is high. Very little semen is required for pregnancy to happen (as little as 0.2 ml. Coming out of semen from the vagina after intercourse is absolutely normal as very little of it is required for a lady to get pregnant.

Fresh Fruits - Are they Better than Dried Fruits?

BHMS, PG
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Fresh Fruits - Are they Better than Dried Fruits?

For any advocate of a healthy diet plan, fruits shall always feature as the protagonist. Replete with essential body nutrients, fruits are indeed an important source of body fibers, essential salts and minerals. While the general assumption bids fresh fruits as the healthier alternative, dried fruits too have their fair share of health boosting properties.

However, before you can settle for one over the other, there are certain parameters that need to be inferred closely. It is only by comparing and contrasting the benefits derived from both fresh as well as dried fruits on basis of these heads that we can arrive at a given conclusion.

1. Nutrient density: Since fruits are by and large dense with health boosting components like nutrients, their calorie content on a relative scale is less. One advantage that fresh fruits have in this context is the water proportion in them. Due to the extraction of water from the dried fruits, calories get concentrated alongside the nutrients. This may prove disadvantageous for those trying to cut down the kilos. Fresh fruits on the other hand could benefit them as a sustainable source of energy.

2. Sugar content: When it comes to the density of glucose, fresh fruits and dried fruits, both are at par, essentially. At a given serving size, the sugar content of both varieties do not reflect much of a difference. Although the water content induces a sense of fullness and reduces the subsequent hunger pangs, consumption of fresh fruits also imparts volume.

3. Vitamins: Fresh fruits are extremely beneficial to deal with the problems of dehydration. They are laden with vital vitamins like A, B and C. Therefore, to beat the heat, nothing is as therapeutic as fresh fruits. Contrarily, dried fruits are deprived of their water content, which sometimes compromises their vitamin content since these vitamins are generally heat-sensitive. It also sucks out all of the folate in dried fruits. However, intake of apposite amounts can help in replenishing the vitamin levels that are obtained from the dried fruits.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

No it is not possible. There is a slim chance if it was done in the middle part of menstrual cycle. Though anal sex alone does not lead to pregnancy, pregnancy can still occur with anal sex or other forms of sexual activity if the penis is near the vagina and its sperm is deposited near the vagina's entrance and travels along the vagina's lubricating fluids.

Hello- Though vaginal discharge is often considered to be normal in most healthy woman but at times it can indicates a crisis in disguise. Excessive vaginal discharge should raise an alarm if you notice the following signs accompanied with the same: -Change in colour of the secretions: -Change in consistency: -Burning and itching sensation: -Painful intercourse: -Discharge without any specific reason Since you are facing it from two years, I recommend you to surely consult, and take medicinal aid.

This is the right time to take pregnancy test. If negative repeat the test in another one week time. Abortion is possible by medicine or by surgical method. Visit to gynaecolgist is required for abortion advise as all abortion needs to be under medical supervision only.
