Signs And Symptoms Of Menopause?
hello, I want to ask about my mother aged 43 years, my mother lately often menstruate, menstrual cycle distance is close and fast, my friend said her mother also experienced like that. Does this include signs of menopause?
Menopause is a condition of cessation of menstruation in women for at least 12 months. Normal menopause is experienced by women over the age of 45-55 years. Before experiencing menopause, women can experience several symptoms including:
Changes in the menstrual cycle
Changes in physical appearance: hair loss, dry skin, sagging breasts, weight gain
Mood changes, insomnia, depression
Dry vagina and decreased sex drive
Physical changes: hot flashes, night sweats, dizziness, palpitations, urinary tract infections
Your mother's complaint can be an early symptom of menopause, but it can also be caused by several other medical conditions, for example the effect of certain drugs and contraceptives used, hormonal disorders, stress, drastic weight changes, myomas, polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid disorders, inflammation pelvis and endometriosis.
The menstrual cycle itself is normally around 21-35 days. If your mother has a menstrual cycle of less than 21 days, I suggest that your mother consult directly with a gynecologist so that the cause can be ascertained, if necessary an ultrasound and blood tests. Furthermore, treatment will be given according to your mother's condition. If dipstikan because of symptoms of menopause, doctors generally do not provide any treatment, unless there are annoying complaints.
Hope it helps you,
