Menopausal stage is one of the crucial period for every woman, which can be expected uaually b/w 48-52 yrs, with slight variations of years either earlier or late.There are two stages. Pre& post menopausal treated as Syndromes.In pre Menopausal syndrome, usually, women will get menses irregularly, either delayed or very early, may be prolonged also some times, or scanty.During this stage ony , because of fluctuations in Harmones, they develop Irritability, Mood swings, Depression, Nervousness, Anxiety, fears, Phobias, disinterest for work/Sex, Lazyness,Hypothyroid,Hot flushes, Cramps etc.In general, all these with silght difference in period, will come to normalcy gradually after getting Menopause. But in some cases, these will be carried further, with more or less intensity even after Menopause also? along with those pre menopausal problems, Weight gain also plays an important role. These all due to the stoppage of oestrogen harmone, which indirectly shows the effect on other related harmonal secretions.Decrease in Libido also due to the dryness in vagina. Due to the general decrease in Calcium absorption in this period,[Pre& post], women are more susceptable to develop the diseases related to Bones/Jts?. Like knee pains, Osteo arthritis,Osteo porosi s.So in general,especially in this period women are advised by many Doctors to take additional supplement of Calcium+D vitamin to avoid the risk.Usually, in this period only they have more chances to develop Hypertension, Diabetes also[In case,if any Hereditary is different]
If in case, any bleeding or secretions from vagina with different colour or smell, after long gap of Menopausal period, Then its ideal to consult any Gynaecologist for check up, to avoid Risk factors like Carcinoma, Tumors, etc.
In general, as usual, like for any other C/o, Following some extra precautions like taking Nutritious, Healthy diet,Avoiding spicy, unhealthy, junk food, Doing regular activities, exercises, Yoga, Pranayamas, If needed extra supplements like Calcium etc, getting engaged in some occupation, developing n implementing Hobbies n enjoying those, all will definitily help reducing the above mentioned risks.
Regular Check up also help as precautionary. But with the fear of Disease, n Death, taking Excessive medication for small issues also will do more harm than Good.
