How Coaching can Help Your Life During Menopause?
By Space Coast Daily // January 23, 2020
As well as with pregnancy and childbirth, and with menopause, every woman has her own story, so, some say that life only begins in this period, while others are tortured with a variety of menopause symptoms that reduce the quality of life to nothing.
What is menopause?
During menopausal changes, a serious hormonal restructuring occurs in a woman’s body, which affects not only the functions of the reproductive system but also the general quality of life and condition of the body.
The pathogenesis of menopause and the causes of aging are complex and diverse. Currently, the dominant hypothesis of the onset of menopause is the insufficient production of inhibin by aging ovaries, which is controlled by the aging gene.
Menopause is the adaptation of the body to new conditions. This is the period when the body prepares to “turn off” the reproductive system and complete the menstrual function of the female body.
It is genetically determined and is accompanied by involutive processes and a restructuring of the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-ovarian system.
At this time, the amount of estrogen, the female sex hormone, decreases, and this process is accompanied by various changes in the state of health. The extinction of ovarian function is a long process that takes 5-6 years, and sometimes more.
When does menopause start?
Menopause begins about 2 years before the last menstruation and ends 3-4 years after it. This whole long process can be divided into three stages:
On average, it begins at the age of 45, although it is very individual – sometimes the first signs and symptoms of menopause appear even in 38–40 years, and, sometimes, women almost do not feel any changes until their 50th birthday.
The ovaries still work, but menstruation becomes irregular, and the intervals between them increase.
During this period, a woman for the first time can feel the hot flashes, some note such menopause symptoms as a decrease in libido, bouts of spleen and headaches.
With menopause in a subjective state, there are no radical changes, but dry hair and brittle nails can be observed.
Officially, menopause occurs when a woman has no menstruation for a year. Changes caused by a lack of estrogen begin to manifest themselves especially brightly.
This is a period of active extinction when within a year or two the monthly periods cease. What age does menopause start? The average age of the menopause onset is now 48-53 years. Someone does not feel this process at all, but in other women, the phenomena associated with a decrease in estrogen are clearly manifested.
The most common menopause symptoms are:
• Powerful hot flashes;
• Disorders of the cardiovascular system and increased blood pressure;
• The development of type 2 diabetes if a woman adheres to a strict diet;
• Changes in the blood coagulation system;
This is the period after the first year of the cessation of menstruation and until the end of a woman’s life. At this time, all unpleasant symptoms subside.
But the deep process of structural changes in the body continues. Such menopause symptoms can be present:
• Coronary heart disease;
• Type 2 diabetes mellitus;
• Hypo- or hyperfunction of the thyroid gland.
