Menopause Symptoms Are Costly

What do menopause symptoms cost you? Power? Confidence? SelfEsteem? Time with your kids? Intimacy? 

As an executive, Ihatedsitting in board meetings where I was the only woman, trying to look nonchalant while a hot flash fought for control, wondering if those older men couldtell? Ihated it. 

Although menopause is a natural biological process that occurs when a woman's ovaries stop producing eggs and her body's production of estrogen and progesterone decreases, the symptoms are not welcome. One of the most common symptoms of menopause is hot flashes. That sudden flush that spreads through your body, often accompanied by sweating and a rapid heartbeat, can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.

Hot flashes can have a significant impact on a woman's daily life, making it difficult to focus, concentrate or even complete simple tasks. They can affect sleep quality and cause fatigue. They can be embarrassing in social or professional settings. For some women, the frequency and intensity of hot flashes can be so severe that they can interfere with their ability to work, sleep, and live their lives as they are accustomed to..

There are a number of things you can do to manage hot flashes, such as:

  1. Keeping a cool environment: using air conditioning, fans, and light clothing to help regulate body temperature.
  2. Avoiding triggers: certain foods and drinks, such as caffeine and alcohol, can trigger hot flashes. Identifying and avoiding your triggers can help to reduce the frequency of hot flashes.
  3. Relaxation techniques: such as yoga, deep breathing, or meditation can help to reduce stress, which can help to reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flashes.
  4. Hormonal therapy was popular in the past but medical opinions differ about the potential risks and side effects. Estrogen dominance is often a concern.
  5. Finding herbal supplements that have been clinically studied. This is not always easy.

It's important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of action for you. Hot flashes are a normal part of menopause and they will eventually subside. Don’t hesitate to seek help from friends, family, or healthcare professionals if you feel that hot flashes are costing you your daily life.
