Common Menopause Signs - But They Don't Affect All Women
You may be among the happy 15-20% of women who hardly notice any menopause signs at all.
For a fair few, the menopause is plain sailing, and the transition goes by without serious problems.
Or maybe you have noticed some, or many, of the normal and natural indications that your body is going through a transtion. Try not to think of these as 'symptoms' of menopause, which imply that you have a disease. You haven't!
Menopause is a normal process experienced by all midlife women. If you can see the menopause signs as just that - signals that a natural bodily process is going on - it can help you to adjust.
What are the menopause signs?
The list is many and various, and it does make the menopause sound like some kind of endurance test.
But don't be too alarmed. Few women experience every single one of these menopausal signs.And any that do affect you are likely to wax and wane over the years of the menopause, gradually dwindling away as the transition reaches its end.
Here are the most common signs of menopause:
Your attitude is SO important
How do you feel about that list of menopause signs? Frightened? Anxious? Or do you take a more philosophical stance, thinking that these changes are part of the complex tapestry of a woman's life, and you'll cope with whatever nature lobs at you?
If you can take a more accepting view, so much the better. Research has demonstrated that women who go into the menopausal years with more positive expectations of how the transition will affect them, have a better experience than those who start out full of dread, braced for the full gamut of menopause signs to strike.
Makes sense, doesn't it? It's well known that the mind has a powerful influence over the body. This is not to say that 'menopause is all in the mind'. It certainly isn't, and there are many physical changes involved. But the way you think about those changes can make all the difference to how much power you give them to have a negative impact on your life.
And there are productive steps you can take to reduce the impact of menopause signs:
Your body is making important changes to take you healthily into the next phase of life. Work with the menopause signs, rather than against them, and remember, they WILL come to an end, and you'll go into a new phase of life with renewed energy and confidence.
