Sharing information about health related sites is one of the purposes of this blog. When I learned about a website devoted to menopause, its symptoms and treatments, I wanted to bring attention to it. GotMenopause.com was created for women going through menopause, perimenopause and post menopause. Besides informational articles, the website has a forum and groups, where you can get to know others going through similar situations.

Symptoms of Menopause

There are many different symptoms (35) of menopause and they can vary from woman to woman. It’s important to know about these symptoms so that you’ll know if you are indeed beginning menopause. Hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, weight gain and anxiety are some menopause symptoms. When women are in the stage approaching menopause – perimenopause – these symptoms can be very intense. During perimenopause, irregular periods can begin. That is usually when a woman knows that something is different is happening with her body. Whenever your periods change, it is important to see your doctor to rule out other causes.

Treatments of Menopause Symptoms

If the symptoms of menopause become disruptive to your life, i.e. you miss work days or night sweats keep you awake frequently, you may wish to seek treatment. You also may want to treat one specific symptom that is bothersome, such as vaginal dryness. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was long used as a treatment for menopause. Because of the health risks associated with it, though it very rarely prescribed by doctors. Herbal treatments have gained popularity. These include, black cohash and soy. Prescriptions, such as antidepressants may help women cope with symptoms as well.

Lifestyle Changes

Because your body is going through the hormonal imbalance of menopause, making lifestyle changes can help alleviate symptoms and health risks that can occur during or after menopause. Stop smoking, eat a healthy diet, exercise, and build up a support system are some of the top recommendations. Visiting and joining the community of Got Menopause provides the information you need and the support you need during this time in your life.

  3. I never really realized that menopause was such a detailed condition. I mean, I guess I’m a bit naive as a guy, but 35 different symptoms? After reading that, I’m happy I am not a girl.
