Menopause: Is It Really Difficult?

It can not be helped that some women, especially those who are in their late forties and early fifties, dread menopause or going through menopause. The reason for the negative feeling is easy to understand. It stems from the simple fact that many women do not truly understand what menopause is.

So What Is Menopause Again?

Menopause is the time when women begin to experience cessation of their menstrual period. According to medical and health experts, ‘when’ it happens differ from woman to woman but normally, it comes around when a woman is on her late forties or early fifties.

Physically, what can be expected is the cessation of the menstrual period. It does not stop immediately though. A younger woman’s normal menstrual period lasts for four to five days but for women experiencing menopause it goes down to two to three days a month, for several months to one to two years, and then ultimately it simply stops coming.

So What Makes Menopause Dreadful to Some Women?

Some people may find this interesting but it’s not really the cessation of menstruation or monthly period that makes menopause dreadful for a woman. In fact, the top answer many women gave when they were asked what they specifically like with menopause was this: “not having to deal with blood or menstruation every single month”. So what is it that women hate with menopause? The answers are these: hot flashes, irritability, moodiness, night sweats, sleep difficulties, and for some, going through depression.

Looking At Menopause in a Different Light

Here’s something that women may find interesting and comforting: menopause is not really that bad. Of course menopause indicates that when it happens to a woman it means she has reached that age when she is already considered ‘physically mature’, but then it is something inevitable. Everyone will grow old; this is a fact of life.

It’s not as bad as it sounds. It’s not as bad as many people describe it. On the contrary, when looked upon with a clear and understanding mind, menopause can be a very exciting period in a woman’s life. Let’s count the reasons why …

It’s a time for freedom! Truly, not having to deal with monthly period is awesome! No more need for pads or tampons; the ability to enjoy intimacy any time you want without the fear of getting pregnant; and many more reasons. Ask any woman around and they will tell you exactly the same!

How about the hot flashes and the irritability etc.? Well, the good news is your doctor can help you ease the symptoms. There are medications that your doctor can give you to help you manage whatever it is that you will experience, so fret not.

Menopause? Embrace it! There’s nothing wrong with getting older. Yes there are disadvantages when you’re a little older, but if you really try harder, you will find that there are also many wonderful things about being older … and wiser. Take the journey with a positive attitude and you’ll never look back again and wish you were younger!
