What is menopause?
Menopause is a big change that every woman faces in her life. The women in the ages of 40 to 50 experience a drastic drop in their reproductive hormones. It is particularly noticeable when a woman has a 12-month gap since her last menstrual period. Menopause affects women physically, psychologically and socially. Hot flashes, night sweats, osteoporosis, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, restlessness and vaginal dryness are very common in this phase.
Navigating life with the challenges of menopause can be very excruciating on the wellbeing of a woman.
Here are 5 tips for menopause management and how you can take care of your wellbeing from the problems during menopause:
- Cool off hot flashes: Hot flashes are common during menopause. Identify the cause of your hot flashes and cool them down by staying hydrated and regulating room temperature. Avoid spicy foods, caffeine and alcohol. Any type of food that can lead to high body temperatures should be avoided.
