What are the physical and emotional impacts of menopause?
The hormonal fluxes during perimenopause can affect more than just the menstrual cycle. Some common experiences include:
Mood Alterations: Hormonal shifts can lead to mood swings or difficulties in concentration.
Physical Changes: Decreased estrogen levels might cause changes in breast shape, weight gain, and affect the health of the uterus, ovaries, and other female organs.
Sexual Health: Some women report a decreased libido or intimacy-related challenges.
Other Health Concerns: Conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, endometriosis, or even mental health issues like depression and anxiety can be influenced by menopause.
