You’re sweating, you’re crying, you can’t sleep, everybody you know is SO much more irritating… are you going crazy?? Well, maybe. But if you are a woman from the age of 40-60 it could be menopause.
Menopause is when your body stops producing as much hormone. Hooray! No more periods. Boo! Sleep disturbances, mood changes, sexual discomfort, and the dreaded hot flash are common.
Some women get through this rough patch in a few short years. For others (Sorry Ladies!!), symptoms can last 10 years or more. I KNOW!! Let’s all take a collective deep breath here.
There are treatment to make life much more comfortable. Call your provider to schedule time to sit down and talk about what you’re feeling. Every woman will experience menopause differently (from the mild to the wild) and treatments should be tailored to your individual needs.
