Although menopause is the end of your childbearing years, it is not the end of your life. In fact, menopause is a protective mechanism for longevity. Human beings are the only species with such a long span of life after reproduction. For most animals, the basic function for female is to reproduce. After reproduction, females will die.
The current women life expectancy is about the age of eighty, so women still have about forty years after menopause . The second half of life can be longer, richer, and more satisfying than ever before. The first half of life was childhood, which was controlled by your parents and youth which you made many innocent mistakes.
The period leading to menopause is called perimenopause and the period after menopause is called post menopause. Perimenopause is the period when most of the women face worst symptoms of menopause. There are thirty-five symptoms to menopause that includes dry vagina, erratic periods, depression, urinary inconsistency, hot flashes etc.
Although hot flash is the most common symptom faced by menopausal women, it can also be caused by medication and lifestyle.
· Occurrence of Hot Flash: Estrogen is the hormone that directly effect’s the part of the brain known as hypothalamus. This part is responsible for controlling appetite, sleep cycles, sex hormones, and body temperature. Decline in estrogen confuses the brain into believing that the body is over-heated. Subsequently the brain signals to heart to pump more blood and to sweat glands to release more sweat. Hence the woman feels a sudden flush of heat and then unpleasant and unnecessary sweating.
Though the consequences of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on CVD are favourable, these depend on the girl’s age and medical background.
There’s a trend that HRT is cardioprotective in younger women. In older ladies, there’s a trend to an increase in CVD risk, though this impact is not statistically significant.
Generally, HRT is safe for many younger women (i.e. women going through the or in the first postmenopausal period) for the relief of menopausal symptoms.
If you’re wondering how to stop night sweats from menopause you’ve come to the right place. There’s nothing worse than not being able to sleep in the middle of the night, then waking up from the two hour nap you were able to take, tired, moody, and preparing for hot flashes during the day while cooking breakfast. I’m going to help you conquer these night sweats and restore your happiness back to the way it was prior to menopause.
Why Does It Occur?
Hot flashes and night sweats occur due to hormone imbalances that cause useless adrenaline energy to be released at night and during the day. Your adrenal glands will often receive the wrong signals causing your blood to move faster through your body, therefore, producing sweat. This is a natural 2 to 10 year occurrence in a woman’s body around her late 40s and late 50s, but I will help you deal with it now.
