Premenstrual Symptoms in Women
What is normal PMS?
Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS occurs in women before their menstrual cycles. Normal PMS is characterized by physical symptoms including bloating, uterine cramping, headaches, tender breasts, sleep problems, low sex drive, lower back pain, constipation and weight gain. Normal PMS will also have some mood and behavioral symptoms. These symptoms include depression, irritability, anxiety, decreased alertness and withdrawal from family and friends. All normal PMS symptoms should not be severe or long lasting enough to impact the quality of a woman’s life. PMS occurs in the second half of the menstrual cycle, between ovulation and the beginning of menstrual bleeding. For many women, there will be a difference between cycles in quantity of menstrual blood and severity of PMS symptoms.
What is abnormal PMS?
The major difference between normal premenstrual syndrome and abnormal premenstrual syndrome is the severity of the symptoms cited. Abnormal PMS will have consistently severe symptoms every cycle and will not respond to self-care or over the counter treatment.
When does PMS naturally decline?
Premenstrual syndrome naturally declines nearing menopause as hormone levels decrease with aging. PMS may also become less severe when stress is managed, exercise is consistent and diet is balanced. Calcium, iron and protein are important nutrients to seek out when premenstrual. Allowing time for extra sleep and reducing the number of responsibilities you have while premenstrual may also reduce PMS symptoms. One way to help combat severe PMS is through information collection: start your journey to menstrual wellness by keeping a detailed menstrual diary. There are many apps for this purpose as well as .pdf document templates that can be printed and written on. Once you have a detailed log of your menstrual experience, you will be better able to inform your practitioner what your symptoms and needs are.
Menopause Symptoms in Women
What is menopause?
Menopause is a significant source of hormonal imbalance in women. This is specifically because menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop the production of hormones.
What are normal symptoms of menopause?
Even normal symptoms of menopause are difficult to bear. These symptoms include hot flashes, vaginal dryness and sleep disturbances. The symptoms of menopause can cause depression and anxiety which are often intolerable and tremendously reduce quality of life.
What are the phases of menopause?
There are three phases of menopause including perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. Symptoms in perimenopause are often much more severe than the ones of menopause and postmenopause.
What is perimenopause?
Perimenopause is a name given to the beginning stages of menopause. The symptoms of this include changes in menstrual cycle, trouble with incontinence, an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs), decreased libido, depression and mood swings. During perimenopause, women may also experience their skin thinning, hair becoming brittle and a weakening of bone density.
What is postmenopause?
Many different things can occur during the stage of a woman’s life where she is considered “postmenopausal”. Many women are relieved by the end of their hot flashes, and the lessened severity of their mood swings during this time. However, many health issues can arise with lowered estrogen levels. Heart disease and osteoporosis are among the conditions that can come along during postmenopause. After the 12th month where a woman does not have a period, she is considered to be postmenopausal.
What are the symptoms of menopause?
The only true sign that a woman is in postmenopause is when she does not have a period in 12 months. With age comes decreased fertility, but women can potentially get pregnant at any time before then. During the menopausal period, women may experience changes in sex drive, headaches, difficulty concentrating, hair loss, weight gain, racing heart, a worsening of PMS, difficulty sleeping and numerous changes emotionally, both during and before menopause.
What is BHRT?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT is a natural method of replacing hormones that the body loses during menopause, and at other times. While typical hormone replacement therapy utilizes animal hormones that are synthetically conjugated, our bio-identical, plant-based hormones more closely duplicate the molecular structure of your own hormones. Atlas Medical inserts BHRT in pellet form into the hip area in a quick, generally painless procedure. Learn more about this by contacting us today.
