Menopausal symptoms

        MENOPAUSAL SYMPTOMS
According to Dr Derek Llewellyn-Jones, a Sydney obstetrician and gynaecologist and a prolific writer on health issues, at least a hundred symptoms have been attributed to the menopause, but only two can be related absolutely to the hormonal changes that are going on. They are hot flushes and vaginal dryness. Nonetheless women in the reproductive years can experience similar symptoms. In any given two-week period, for instance, one in ten women who are not menopausal experiences a hot flush.
Irritability and moodiness are another good example of symptoms not confined to menopausal women, a point made by Dale Spender in the Sydney Morning Herald of 14 April 1993. 'Now that we are all familiar with the psychological distress caused by unemployment,' she said, 'we can see that it is very similar to the so-called symptoms of menopausal women. [If they are] Denied a useful role and a sense of affirmation, the outcome is low self-esteem, depression and a sense of futility about the meaning of life. In the past we just confused menopause with "downsizing".' Not only do women of menopausal age sometimes experience feelings of scaled-down worth, they are also coping with the physical effects of fluxing hormones. Perhaps they might handle the situation better if they did not have to cope with these dual pressures simultaneously.
SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE
You may become aware that menopause is around the corner when some or all of the following signs show up:
? unpredictable menstrual bleeding that is sometimes very light and regular, at other times heavy and prolonged
? hot flushes and accompanying sweats
? bladder problems resulting in a need to urinate more frequently and troublesome urinary tract infections
? uncharacteristic irritability and mood swings
? short-term memory loss and difficulties with concentration
? sleeplessness and a generalised loss of zip
? a crawling sensation under the skin
? inexplicable weight gain and shifts in body fat distribution
? dryness of the vagina, making intercourse painful or less comfortable
? loss of libido
? less frequent appearance of the lubricative mucus from the cervix that indicates ovulation
? headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations
