How long that period will last depends on several factors. But the most important factor is our hormonal status and it is very individual how each of us will react to the period when the hormone level begins to slowly decrease. It is a process that lasts, it is menopause, and it is accompanied by certain changes in the body and on the body of the woman.
The most common symptoms are sudden sensations of heat in the upper part of the body, insomnia followed by night sweats and increased “heart palpitations” that make it difficult to sleep, dryness of the vagina followed by irritation of the mucous membrane, itching and a feeling of tightness, and as a result of dryness of the vagina, sexual intercourse can also be painful. Also, it very often happens that changes in hormone levels are accompanied by changes in mood, which include stress, anxiety and depression.
We are talking about a very sensitive period for a woman, which is usually kept silent or very little talked about. Menopause should not be a taboo subject and women should not feel less valuable or less feminine during menopause. Every menopause symptom listed can be managed, and quite successfully.
A change in hormone levels, i.e. a drop in estrogen, is the most common reason for vaginal dryness during this period, although dryness also occurs during some medical conditions such as hysterectomy and other surgical interventions, endometriosis, cancer therapy, diabetes and high blood pressure. This unpleasant phenomenon in women can also be caused by a urinary infection, infection with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) or vaginal candidiasis.
Vaginal dryness is a discomfort that can easily be avoided, with special emphasis on the fact that women can go through menopause without this unpleasant symptom. How?
