Menopause Symptoms In Plain English

We ladies must be well-informed about menopause. Unfortunately, it’s not something that we’re educated about and is often left down to us to research; however, it is starting to be taught to teens after one lady’s campaign after she had suicidal thoughts during her menopause. For those of us who aren’t lucky enough to still be in secondary school and being taught this information, we’ve put together this short guide to understanding menopause and more importantly, enabling you to recognise perimenopause symptoms and menopause symptoms (you may be surprised by quite a few).

Let’s have a quick chat about what menopause is and what perimenopause and post-menopause are so you can get an idea of where your body’s at, and what you can do about it.

 

If you want an in-depth consultation about menopause and perimenopause and what you can do about it, book a consultation at our clinic for expert, honest advice.

Stages Of Menopause

Perimenopause

This is the transition into menopause. Our ovaries are becoming less responsive and the production of oestrogen and progesterone begins to decline. Along the way, there are fluctuations in the control hormones LH and FSH as they start to increase in levels due to the unresponsive ovaries. Because of these hormonal fluctuations, we experience ‘menopausal symptoms’ but still experience a menstrual cycle.

The average woman experiences perimenopause for four years, but it can last as long as 15 years.

How Do I Know if I Am Perimenopausal?

As you can see from the above information, recognising if we’re menopausal or post-menopausal is a little simpler than understanding if we are going through perimenopause because the latter have reasonably straightforward symptoms to look out for regarding your last period.

As a general guide, the average age women begin perimenopause in their 40s, however, some of us will start earlier than this and some of us will be in our 50s.

The symptoms of perimenopause are quite diverse, so I’ll go into detail about them in a moment, however, I wanted to flag that you can get confirmation of the perimenopause with a blood test and assessment of your symptoms.

So, what are the symptoms of the perimenopause? I’m going to break them down into two lists of symptoms that are easily recognisable (you may have already noticed these) and those that can often get missed or put down to something else.

Easily Recognisable Perimenopause Symptoms

1. Hot flushes or hot flashes. However, you’d like to describe them, they’re not fun and usually come at an inconvenient moment or at night when lying in your bed. A study by Forth showed that 73% of women experienced this at work. We have an FAQ on hot flashes or night sweats at the bottom of this blog if you have more questions on this symptom and how to manage it.

2. Irregular periods. This may be a change in the length and heaviness of your period, as well as an increased or decreased frequency.

3. Vaginal dryness. This is due to the reduction of oestrogen and can make you sore or itchy, as well as experience discomfort during sex and increased susceptibility to UTIs.

4. Loss of libido. A change in testosterone, progesterone and oestrogen can reduce your desire for sex. Loss of libido can also be due to other symptoms such as vaginal dryness.

5. Trouble sleeping. Not only can those hot flashes keep you awake, but low levels of magnesium can make it harder to go to sleep and relax. And guess what? Oestrogen plays a big part in controlling the level of magnesium you have in your body and as we now know, oestrogen levels drop during perimenopause. Double whammy. Oh, and I nearly forgot frequent urination (see point 16) can interrupt your sleep.

6. Mood swings. Hands up who’s grouchy after a bad night’s sleep… Sleep deprivation activates the parts of the brain which are connected with processing emotions and it’s been found that this pattern imitates the type of activity seen in those with anxiety disorders.

I’m not finished with mood swings yet, oh no! In addition to the above, depleting oestrogen production impacts your production of serotonin aka your happy hormone.

As you can see, thus far perimenopause is not kind. Ready to read on?

 

Less Recognised Signs of Perimenopause

7. Tiredness/fatigue. Trouble sleeping will naturally leave you feeling tired the next day but in addition, low levels of oestrogen can leave you feeling fatigued. This can impact your ability to do what you need to do during the day; this can be stressful. Stress can mean that your body creates cortisol (the stress hormone) which, you guessed it, impacts your quality of sleep and even your ability to fall asleep.

8. Anxiety and depression. There are a few factors at play here; touched upon above, a rise in cortisol and sleep deprivation can really affect your mood in a negative way, which can include anxiety and feelings of depression.

9. Hair loss. During perimenopause, your hair can become thinner and grow slower than previously experienced due to a decline in progesterone and oestrogen. A decline in these two hormones triggers male hormones; these hormones can make your hair follicles shrink which causes hair loss.

10. Hair growth. The triggering of male hormones can mean that we start to grow hair in places associated with men, such as the face. Consider laser hair removal your new best friend.

11. Memory lapses. Brain fog and being unable to concentrate. This symptom of perimenopause can easily be put down to a busy or stressful lifestyle so can be missed. Equally, they can be a huge cause for worry as they are similar to those associated with dementia. Up to 62% of women experience memory changes because of the menopause and this is down to the decline in oestrogen. Stress, sleep issues and anxiety, all can be symptoms of menopause, can also cause brain fog, being unable to concentrate and memory lapses.

A study by Forth showed that 63% of the 1,000 women aged 45 plus surveyed found that their working life had been negatively impacted by their symptoms. 41% noted that their memory and concentration issues led them to make mistakes at work. These memory symptoms can cause us significant stress, which in turn can exacerbate the symptoms of perimenopause.

12. Weight gain. During perimenopause, we often notice an increase in weight (often noticing it around the stomach area). During the perimenopause ovaries don’t secrete enough oestrogen so your body desperately tries to create oestrogen elsewhere; it does this via your fat cells, therefore your body will hold onto fat to enable this process to happen.

13. Headaches. Some of us may even experience migraines for the first time or headaches associated with your period may become more frequent due to low oestrogen levels during the perimenopause.

14. Vertigo and dizziness. Again, low levels of oestrogen are responsible here! Blood pressure, circulation and the nervous system can all be affected by a decline in your oestrogen levels; the result can be dizziness and vertigo (feeling like the room is spinning).

15. Frequent urination. The urethra, vagina and pelvic floor muscles become weaker and lose elasticity during perimenopause. This can mean that you need the toilet more often or are unable to control your bladder like before. If you think you’re experiencing this symptom, you may like to learn more about the non-invasive Emsella chair which can improve urinary incontinence and pelvic floor strength. This Emsella blog is also informative when it comes to this symptom of menopause.

16. Breast soreness. This may be in both breasts or just one and may feel different to the ‘usual’ discomfort associated with your period. The soreness can feel sharp or be a throbbing or burning sensation. If you have any concerns about breast soreness or changes get your GP to check this out for you ASAP.

17. Itchy skin. Oestrogen is to blame for this one too! A decline in your oestrogen levels can impact the production of your skin’s natural oils; a lack of natural oil can leave your skin dry and feeling itchy. Oestrogen is also associated with collagen production; collagen is like your skin scaffolding, when it starts to disappear wrinkles and lines pop up or become more apparent.

18. Acne. An increase in testosterone and a decline in oestrogen can be responsible for adult acne.
Joint pain. Joint inflammation can be caused by falling oestrogen and progesterone levels. Ouch!

19. Brittle nails. When oestrogen levels lower, the layers of keratin (which your nails are made up of) are weakened, this means that your nails can break or chip more easily.

20. Bloating and other digestive issues. Oestrogen has a part to play in your digestive system with low levels causing several undesired symptoms such as bloating, flatulence, cramps, acid reflux, nausea, diarrhoea and constipation.

Perimenopause Solutions

*Deep inhale*

As you can see, or possibly know from your own experiences, the road to menopause is not always an easy or pleasant one. Hormonal fluctuations certainly have a lot to answer for and we can see, from what happens when we don’t have the right balance, how important they are to our physical and mental health and well-being both immediately and long-term.

Symptoms of perimenopause can be noticed for the best part of a decade so if you are unhappy with the impact that they’re having on you, there are ways of managing them. After all, if your Thyroid had a deficiency in the amount of Thyroxin hormone it secretes, most of us would decide to treat it, right?

Additionally, the use of all types of HTR currently available, including BHRT, can play a protective role in cardiovascular (heart) disease and osteoporosis which is a weakening of the bones due to a drop in oestrogen.

HRT (hormone replacement therapy) is traditionally used across the board by GPs to help ease symptoms and can be taken for as long as needed; your GP will go over the benefits of this therapy with you and discuss any potential risks for you to weigh up.

There is also the option of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and body-identical hormone replacement therapy. These are an alternative to traditional HRT.

So, there is light at the end of this long tunnel of possible menopausal symptoms! Did you discover any symptoms that surprised you?

Please note that this blog post is not a diagnostic tool, instructional or offering personalised advice. If you have any health care concerns please seek advice from an appropriate professional.

Menopause

This is when our natural progesterone and oestrogen levels drop and our ovaries are unresponsive; as a result, ovulation stops. We tend to classify menopause as such when you have not had a period for 12 months; so essentially menopause is just a day, the year anniversary of your last period.

Post-menopausal

This is the phase following menopause. Your periods will have stopped. Women will spend a good portion, thought to be a third, of our lives in this period.

So, I have menopausal symptoms, what is the next step?

+

The official line in the sand, i.e. when Menopause has officially begun is when you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without menstruating. Symptoms like the ones we discussed in this blog are common right before, during, and after menopause.

This is a time in your life when your body can start to feel out of control, making you feel like a passenger instead of the one behind the wheel. If you start to feel this way, we are here, to offer expert, no-nonsense advice on what you can practically do to empower yourself and manage menopause symptoms.

The menopausal transition is not an easy one, we as women, are well aware of this. However, there are numerous treatments that work. Do not despair, it is a matter of educating and empowering yourself. Once you feel you have the knowledge you need to go forward, there are numerous options to manage menopause symptoms.

This is where we recommend a one-on-one consultation, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing menopause symptoms. We cannot give you the right advice in a single blog, however, give us 30 mins of your time and we can take the next step together.

How can I treat vaginal dryness?

+

After a brief stint of Googling vaginal dryness, most women are usually left with a feeling of overwhelming defeat.

However, we want you to have 3 takeaways.

  1. Vaginal dryness can cause discomfort in the vaginal and pelvic regions.
  2. Vaginal dryness is rarely serious, and there are several treatments that can help treat it. There are also ways that you can help prevent it.
  3. If you experience vaginal dryness that doesn’t go away, we suggest a one-on-one consultation with a speciaist.

How common are hot flashes?

+

Most women experience hot flashes during their menopausal transition. Hot flashes, night sweats, or whatever you want to call them can occur during premature menopause (early menopause). Understanding and dealing with hot flashes is a part of dealing with menopause symptoms, which sadly, are a fact of life. The official definition is that a hot flash is a sudden feeling of intense heat, not caused by external sources. Some hot flashes pass after a few seconds, while a long hot flash may go on for more than 10 minutes. The frequency of hot flashes also varies.

Some women experience a few hot flashes per week, while others may have several an hour. Depending on where you are in perimenopause, that can change. There are a range of treatments and lifestyle changes that may help lessen the symptoms and frequency of your hot flashes. This is where we recommend a one-on-one consultation with a specialist, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing menopause symptoms.

More Menopause FAQs answered.

Menopause is a natural phase in a woman’s life when her ovaries stop releasing eggs and hormone levels fluctuate. The main hormone involved is estrogen. While some women experience mild symptoms during this transition, others may have more severe and immediate symptoms. Common symptoms include hot flashes (also called vasomotor symptoms), night sweats, and changes in the menstrual cycle. Lifestyle factors and family history can influence the experience of symptoms. It is important for menopausal women to manage symptoms and seek medical advice if needed. Healthcare providers can offer medical treatments and guidance, especially for those at higher risk due to factors like autoimmune diseases. Other health risks, such as sleep apnea and painful intercourse, can also be addressed during this stage. Consulting a healthcare professional is crucial for navigating the menopause transition and maintaining overall well-being in postmenopausal years.

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

    Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision.

    Response from the owner: Terri, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback.

Thank you wholeheartedly for your kind recommendation, it means a lot to the entire team!

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.
    Response from the owner: Thank you so much for taking the time to feedback to us about your experience of our signature treatment, SculptLift, with Jane. It’s wonderful to hear that you felt the treatment was fully discussed so that you felt fully informed prior to going ahead. It’s really wonderful to hear that she made you comfortable throughout your procedure and she guided you through the process. Additionally wonderful that you didn’t experience any bruising, particularly as someone who bruises easily! Jane will be looking forward to reviewing your results with you soon. Thanks again Sam!
    I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.
