Every woman living through mid-life will undergo the biological event known as menopause. Many women sail through the transition without any symptoms other than a gradual cessation of their menstrual periods (NIH, 2005, p. 2). On the other hand, some women experience one or more bothersome symptoms such as insomnia, weight gain, decreased libido, mood swings, forgetfulness, and hot flashes.
You are unique. No one else on this planet has the same genetics as you. So it would make sense that you will have a unique experience in midlife and during the menopause transition.
Enhanced Health Solutions offers coaching and educational programs designed to reduce the complexity and stress women face in midlife.
Research has shown the most relevant factors influencing a woman’s quality of life during the menopause transition include her social situation and her experience of stressful life events (Hunter, 1993, p. 33). The ongoing activation of the stress response can disrupt almost all body processes, causing symptoms in common with those attributed to menopause such as weight gain, insomnia, forgetfulness, mood swings, and decreased libido (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2016).
