Mental Problems In Menopausal and Post-Menopausal Women

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Mental Problems In Menopausal and Post-Menopausal Women

The period around the age of 45 to 50 is very delicate for most women as many changes occur within the body. The changes occur due to menopause or a cessation of the menstrual cycle for a period of at least 12 months or so. Along with a host of physical changes, post-menopausal women tend to suffer from mental problems as well. Some of the factors could be physical changes such as a decline or stop in hormone productions while some of them are psychological effects as well. Some of the common mental problems faced by women are mentioned below:

  1. Depression: This is by far the most common mental disorder and affects women while they are going through the process of menopause. After a few years, post-menopausal women tend to recover from this or the symptoms at least taper off. It is estimated that almost 20% of women undergoing menopause suffer from this problem, although the risk of depression is much higher if you have prior history of it.

  2. Sleep Disorders: This can be described as not only a mental disorder that affects women but also a symptom of menopause. Sleep disorders can range anywhere between disturbed sleep, insomnia or sleep apnea (breathing difficulty while sleeping), especially in older women. Women undergoing menopause may suffer from this due to hormonal changes which result in hot flashes. These can wake you up in the middle of the night almost daily.

  3. Schizophrenia: This is a serious mental disorder and is mostly noticed in women who have a prior history of the disorder. This condition is characterized by delusions and a detachment from reality which often pushes the person to act on their inappropriate imaginations. Schizophrenia usually manifests itself in young adulthood and peaks again at the age of around 45 to 50. If you had episodes of schizophrenia in your early adulthood, then it may resurface during menopause, although most women do see a subsiding of symptoms some time after menopause has occurred.

  4. Panic Disorder: Women tend to experience this problem, during or even after menopause, as a new disorder that suddenly develops. This can be quite disruptive in your life. Also, if you have a history of this disorder, menopause may trigger it to show up again.

  5. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: This disorder is another mental health issue that can cause you to be overly obsessive, more so among menopausal women. If you already have had OCD in the past, menopause can trigger a relapse or a bad episode.

  6. Bipolar Disorder: In this case as well, menopausal women have a higher tendency for a relapse or the start of a bad episode if they already had even mild signs of it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Hello, the pain you are talking about is because of ovulation, so take homoeopathic medicines - Mag. Phos. 6x and Colocynthis 200 - both after 2-3 hrs. during the pain. And Five Phos/ thrice dail for 1month. If the pain still persists, get back to me for further guidance. Management: Regular light exercise daily helps to reduce the pain and improves the circulation. Eat healthy and nutritious diet to avoid any deficiencies. Drink 12-15 glasses of water (as dehydration can also lead to more cramps).

Hi lybrate-user you plan sex from day 8-18th of the period in order to get pregnant provided if periods are regular 30 days. Plan sex alternate day. Once she missed her periods then get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

To get pregnant you need to have regular sex i. E. 3-4 times a week for one full year before you start seeking medical help. If you want to make her pregnant fast then you can follow this calender method. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26 days) minus 18 days = 8th day. The longest cycle (31 days) minus 10 days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. But you need to have penetration to get her pregnant. If there is a long standing issue then you should get her examined from a gynecologist.

There are some chances of pregnancy from sex on 5th March being your 14th day (If that was unprotected sex). Since today or tomorrow is your due date theoretically, get tested for pregnancy using a home pregnancy test kit. If positive see a gynecologist immediately. At this early stage it is possible to abort the pregnancy with tablets and supervision. IF there is no pregnancy, relax and take abundant precautions hereafter. Best wishes!

How many cycle of IVF you had done. Since IVF have a success rate of 40 to 50 % only depending on the infertility type, so you may not be able to conceive in one chance. N this case, the diabetes isn’t preventing conception, but is preventing an ongoing pregnancy. High glucose levels are reported to increase a woman’s chances of miscarriage by 30-60% An increased risk of birth defects due to damage caused to embryonic cells form the high levels of glucose in the blood SO you should think of donor IVF cycle also.

All About Orgasmic Dysfunction

MD - Medicine, Member of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health (UK) (MRSH)
Sexologist, Delhi
All About Orgasmic Dysfunction

A healthy mind is responsible for a healthy and relaxed body and both are imperative for attaining better orgasms during intercourse. Orgasmic dysfunction, or inhibited sexual excitement, or simply anorgasmia, is a condition whereby, a woman fails to attain orgasms even when sexually aroused. This can prove to be a major sexual problem and is the cause of disputes and conflicts in a relationship because of the lack of sexual intimacy and satisfaction.

In order to be sexually excited, both mind and body are involved in a series of complex processes, which finally result in a peak sexual response. Thus, both need to be functioning well in order to stimulate an orgasm.

Causes that may lead to orgasmic dysfunction:

  1. Boredom or lack of interest in sexual indulgences
  2. Hormonal disorders or changes brought on by menopause
  3. Chronic illnesses that affect sexual interest
  4. Acquired negative attitudes (usually from childhood or adolescence) towards sex
  5. Previous traumatic experiences relating to rape or sexual abuse
  6. Certain prescription drugs like antidepressants
  7. Stress or high fatigue
  8. Medical conditions affecting the nervous system around the pelvis
  9. Medical conditions causing chronic pelvic pain

Symptoms of organic dysfunction may include:

  1. Inability to attain orgasms
  2. Taking longer than normal to reach an orgasm
  3. Not having satisfying orgasms

Treatment

It is important to note that when treating problems associated with orgasmic dysfunction, you must maintain a healthy attitude towards sex, in addition to having sufficient knowledge pertaining to sexual stimulations and responses. Learning how to communicate and how to express your needs and desires clearly is another important step in the treatment of anorgasmia. Here are a few other ways to improve your sex life:

  1. Eat well and get enough rest
  2. Reduce your consumption of alcohol, drugs, or smoking
  3. Engage in Kegel exercises which involve tightening and relaxing the muscles of the pelvis
  4. Use birth control methods that both you and your partner agree to
  5. Engage in other sexual activities apart from sexual intercourse
  6. Educate yourself more about reaching orgasms by focusing on clitoral stimulation or directed masturbation
  7. Take up sexual counseling to learn helpful exercises

Hello, you are still in an early reproductive age and hence likely that your hormones are still immature and likely to delay your menses, also another possible cause may be pcos for which you need to be investigated with a hormonal profile and an ultrasound thoroughly. Have protected sex if pregnancy is not desired. Regards.

Hello, it is difficult to make a comment whether the prolapse is a systole or a prolapsed fibroid from uterus unless a per speculum exam is done, but both can be identified separately and there is no difficulty is distinguishing both during per speculum exam. So I suggest if you are in a doubt then an mri pelvis shall clear your doubt completely. Regards.

5 Ways to Cultivate Self-Awareness

5 Ways to Cultivate Self-Awareness

Self-awareness (sometimes also referred to as self-knowledge or introspection) about understands your own needs, desires, failings, habits, and everything else that makes you tick. The more you know about yourself, the better you are at adapting life changes that suit your needs.


 

Why does self-awareness matter?

Self-awareness is the key cornerstone to emotional intelligence, according to daniel goleman. The ability to monitor our emotions and thoughts from moment to moment is key to understanding ourselves better, being at peace with who we are and proactively managing our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

In addition, self-aware people tend to act consciously rather than react passively, to be in good psychological health and to have a positive outlook on life. They also have greater depth of life experience and are more likely to be more compassionate to themselves and others.


 

5 ways to cultivate self-awareness:

1. Create some space for yourself. When you are in a dark room without windows, it is fairly difficult to see things clearly. The space you create for yourself is that crack on the wall where you allow light to come through. Leave yourself some time and space every day – perhaps first thing in the morning or half an hour before sleep when you stay away from the digital distractions and spend some time with yourself, reading, writing, meditating, and connecting with yourself.

2. Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is the key to self-awareness. Jon kabat-zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally”. Through mindfulness practice, you will be more present with yourself so that you can “be there” to observe what’s going on inside and around you. It is not about sitting cross-legged or suppressing your thoughts. It is about paying attention to your inner state as they arise. You can practice mindfulness at any time you want, through mindful listening, mindful eating or walking.

3. Keep a journal: writing not only helps us process our thoughts but also makes us feel connected and at peace with ourselves. Writing can also create more headspace as you let your thoughts flow out onto paper. Research shows that writing down things we are grateful for or even things we are struggling with helps increase happiness and satisfaction. You can also use the journal to record your inner state. Try this at home –choose a half day on a weekend, pay close attention to your inner world – what you are feeling, what you are saying to yourself, and make a note of what you observe every hour. You may be surprised about what you write down!

4. Practice being a good listener. Listening is not the same as hearing. Listening is about being present and paying attention to other people’s emotions, body movement and language. It is about showing empathy and understanding without constantly evaluating or judging. When you become a good listener, you will also be better at listening to your own inner voice and become the best friend of yourself.

5. Gain different perspectives: ask for feedback. Sometimes we can be too afraid to ask what others think of us – yes sometimes the feedback may be biased or even dishonest but you will be able to differentiate them from real, genuine and balanced feedback as you learn more about yourself and others. Research has shown conducting 360 degree feedback in workplace is a useful tool to improve managers’ self-awareness. We all have blind spots, so it is helpful to gain different perspective to see a fuller picture of ourselves.

 

Self-awareness, as “arguably the most fundamental issue in psychology, from both a developmental and an evolutionary perspective”, is a rich and complicated subject. As human beings, we may never fully understand ourselves, if there is such a destination. But perhaps it is the journey of exploring, understanding and becoming ourselves that makes life worth living.

You can not be 100%sure about ovulation day unless you get it checked in the ultrasound by getting follicular study done and again having sex even on the ovulation day is not 100% confirmatory to get pregnant.
