In this article, I’m going to debunk another common myth of menopause: your symptoms aren’t bad enough for a doctor’s visit. If you’re experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, you should speak to your doctor, naturopath, or a menopause practitioner about getting treatment options and strategies for minimizing their impact on your life.
Hot flashes and sweats, especially those that interrupt sleep. Poor sleep can create its whole new set of problems, including poor concentration and irritability, sexual health concerns like vaginal dryness, painful intercourse. Loss of libido? Definitely you wanna see about replacing your hormones. Irregular and especially heavy bleeding, this can be a red flag and signal. Something else may be a problem.
Weight gain, mood swings, drying out of the mucous membranes, forgetfulness, all these things can disrupt your lifestyle and definitely warrant a visit to your doctor or menopause practitioner or natural path.
