It’s not just hot flashes and missing periods that indicate that you are quietly moving into menopause, there are other subtle signs that you may not be aware of and that you should definitely look out for.
We wants to show you some major signs of menopause that no one has ever told you about.
Ironically, although the hair on your head may be thinning, unwanted new hair may appear on your chin, upper lip, or cheeks. This happens due to changes in the relationship between androgen levels and estrogen levels in the body.
Although androgen and estrogen levels drop during menopause, they do so at different rates. While estrogen levels drop dramatically, androgen levels drop more slowly over time.
A drop in estrogen levels in your body makes the hypothalamus think it is overheated, which signals your body to sweat more to lower body temperature.
Loss of bone density occurs due to a drop in estrogen levels in the body. You can lose up to 20% of your bones during the first five years of menopause. This can increase the risk of osteoporosis or bone weakness.
Weakened pelvic floor muscles, usually as a result of vaginal delivery, along with the thin urethral lining due to lower estrogen levels, cause stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or urge urinary incontinence, making it difficult to contain the urge to pee.
New Cases Of Allergies
Our hormones and our immune systems work together. Women transitioning to menopause are more susceptible to severe reactions to their current allergies or may develop new allergies.
This is due to the weakening of the immune system caused by the natural fluctuation of hormones during this period.
Sudden Change In Vision
Hormones regulate various bodily functions that can affect your eyes; So when they change, your vision can change too. The decrease in hormone levels in women during perimenopause can cause changes in vision and, in some cases, cause a visual change to farsightedness, for example.
