October 18th has been set aside as World Menopause Day 2020. Menopause is not a sentence but a signal of change and for many women, although a challenging time, can signal the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. Today we celebrate and seek for guidance on the treatment options available!
As the world’s population ages, there will be increasing numbers of women entering menopause and living beyond post menopause. The potential symptoms of menopause may have a negative impact on the quality of daily life. Moreover, the consequences of menopause can lead to a host of age-related diseases. Nations around the world should continue to educate women about menopause and the benefits of preventive health care.(1)
Consider the upside.
The beginning of a life without periods. No more worrying about bleeding, wearing or carrying around products just in case. You can also wear whatever you like without concern. You can enjoy your sex life without fear of consequences. Forget about the headaches or worse still the migraines that are caused by the decline in estrogen and progesterone. As you come through the other side of menopause, these headaches should also decrease or disappear altogether. Many women also feel a new sense of power and confidence. You can take time to discover the new you. Face the world with courage and strength. Boldly go where you may not have gone before. You can even decide whether your old life is still the best course for you or take risks that you may not have thought possible or were either too afraid or too constrained to attempt before. The opportunities for women after menopause can be boundless. Make World Menopause Day 2020 the start of the new you!
