Menopause help is possible for menopause signs symptoms when
you understand the main underlying causes for symptoms of
menopause. Menopause help IS available online since millions
women experience menopause signs symptoms each year.
First, here are the most common symptoms of menopause:
• Anxiety and depression
• Fibroid tumors
• Foggy, fuzzy thinking and memory lapses
• Hot flashes and night sweats
• Inability to handle stress
• Irregular menstrual cycles
• Light or heavy menstrual flow
• Lumpy or tender breasts
• Mood swings
• Sleep problems
• Vaginal dryness
• Water retention and bloating
• Weight gain
To obtain menopause help for menopause signs symptoms,
understand female hormones, the menstrual cycle and how
imbalance happens. In a healthy menstruating woman, estrogen
the main hormone produced for the first 10-12 days following
the previous menstrual flow. Ovulation then signals the female
body to produce progesterone, which occurs for the next 12 or
so days. Progesterone and estrogen levels will drop at around
day 28 if there's no pregnancy, and menstruation begins.
However, if there is no ovulation, progesterone cannot be
produced that month. This is called an 'annovulatory cycle'
is a typical occurance today for women in their 30's and 40's.
Without ovulation and progesterone production, the woman then
has an excess of estrogen, a deficiency of progesterone and
definitely needs menopause help.
And once ovulation no longer happens at menopause and after,
progesterone levels fall to virtually zero. At the same time,
estrogen is still being produced, leading to hormone
menopause signs symptoms and the need for menopause help. If
woman has had a hysterectomy, surgical menopause means the
no longer produces progesterone. Besides the problems created
missed ovulations or hysterectomy, excess estrogen is also
obtained from other sources such as birth control pills,
household chemicals and pesticides, foods that have been
sprayed and construction materials used in homes.
Physicians refer to the hormone imbalance condition of excess
estrogen in the body as "estrogen dominance". Symptoms of
estrogen dominance include low sex drive, bloating and weight
gain, headaches, mood swings, irregular periods and excessive
menstrual bleeding. If unopposed estrogen in the female adult
increases beyond what is desirable and healthy, you will
definitely experience menopause signs symptoms. On the other
hand, when your hormones are balanced, you will no longer need
menopause help since you feel alert, energetic and ready to
take on the challenges of everyday life.
