One of the difficult stages of life, through which each woman has to go, is the menopause. This period is characterized by a gradual decrement of child-bearing functions and the overall alteration of the body.
Early menopausal disorders are characterized by vasomotor reaction, which results in so-called flashes. Vasodilatation occurs mainly in the upper half of the body, therefore most women mainly experience redness of chest, shoulders, neck and face. Simultaneously, there could be excessive sweat and headaches, blood pressure changes, increased heart rate. The temperature of hyperemic skin is usually increased.
Hot flashes usually pass quickly, but they are easy to be provoked by any emotions (whether negative or positive). At the same time, women's neuroendocrine activity starts changing that may cause bad mood, easy fatigability, overall weakness, bad memory, aggressiveness, and depression.
Hormonal disorders are manifested in hyperactivity of the thyroid gland expressed in a visible enlargement of the thyroid gland, swelling, tremor, dyspeptic disorder, cardiac dysfunction, etc. Also, during this time a woman has decreased libido due to drying and thinning of vaginal mucosa.
Late menopausal disorders are characterized by violations of cardiovascular activity, the atrophy of bone tissue and other somatic disorders, and exacerbation of chronic diseases.
Treatment of climacteric disorders consists in the use of hormonal drugs (but with great caution, after a detailed discussion with the doctor), as well as symptomatic therapy. Diet, herbal drugs like Menosan, moderate exercise are very beneficial as well.
