For many in the medical establishment, menopause is simply a physical process that a woman’s body goes that marks the end of her reproductive years.
But any woman who has been through it knows that there’s much more to it. Menopause – or, more accurately, perimenopause, the 4-10 years leading up to the end of menstruation – is a time of great changes not only to the body but to the mind and spirit as well. It’s a journey that allows us to come into our own as women.
Menopause affects your mind? You bet. Brain fog, that feeling of fuzzy thinking and confusion, is one of the most common symptoms of peri/menopause. Moodiness is another. Many women find themselves irritable during this time in their lives, while depression and anxiety are also common.
Good quality sleep, adrenal health, balanced blood sugar, and a healthy diet are all effective weapons in fighting brain fog and moodiness.
These are the symptoms that are widely documented, discussed, and treated, the ones that affect a woman’s physical well-being. Common symptoms of peri/menopause include:
- Irregular periods
- Hot flashes
- Breast tenderness
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful intercourse
- Decreased libido
- Increase in urinary tract infections
…and that’s a short list.
