# 4 I’m in a rage! But I am sad and also happy
Since estrogen levels are on a roller coaster, the emotional goes the same way.
The sudden variation in mood is common in the pre-menopause , bringing anger, sadness, euphoria and a whirlwind of feelings that must be very well understood both by the woman who goes through it and by her partner, family and friends.
# 5 Why doesn’t she lubricate anymore?
Another very common sign in pre-menopause is vaginal dryness.
This is because the tissues of the vagina depend on estrogen to remain intact. With the decrease of this hormone in the body, atrophy of the vagina (atrophic vaginitis) may develop. The symptoms that indicate this condition are itching, dryness and dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse), which can be minimized with some vaginal exercises .
# 6 Get out there, today I have a “headache”
With so many changes in female hormones, there is no libido to resist!
The woman has a loss of sexual appetite in the pre-menopause , which may be due to the absence of estrogen or the discomfort during sex due to vaginal dryness. Add to that the anxiety and mood changes characteristic of the period, and that’s it!
The woman does not feel pleasure and, therefore, has low libido in menopause.
# 7 I’m sick with the mirror
As there are several changes in the body, including the possibility of gaining weight, increased hair on the face and hair loss , and in mood, which can damage their relationships, the woman tends to have low self – esteem in the pre-menopause .
For this reason, daily self-care becomes a great ally so that she can make peace with the mirror and her self-image.
There is still the case where the ovaries are removed in surgery – hysterectomy .
We have even talked about it here on the blog. There will be no pre-menopause , obviously, as the last menstruation occurs before the woman is operated on.
