Coping With Menopause

menstruation problems

Hi Rati and IMBB gang,

I have been a member of imbb for long and love it dearly. I am too shy to write any post from my side but there is a very important topic that I wanted to talk about and share with all.

My parents and I, all are doctors, but when my mother recently had to have surgery and face menopause, I realized that there is so much we did’t know about it, and these simple tricks can really help all women cope with it.

1. If you are undergoing a surgery to take out your uterus (hysterectomy), and it’s not an emergency, winters are a better option. That will help you with the hot flushes.

2. After you wake up in the morning, don’t start your day with a jump start like you used to. Take a few deep breaths and relax yourself, listen to a song may be, anything that helps to start your day at your own terms. It will help with the depression like phase women go through. You can repeat it just before sleeping too.

3. If possible take some time out to go for a walk (even 15 min will do). Fresh air leads to production of endorphins or ‘happy hormones’ in one’s body.

4. Try to eat soya products; not every one likes to have hormonal replacement but soya has a lot of natural estrogen that will help you a lot! (my mother got a lot of benefit from this)

5. Body aches and pains become frequent in some people. Mostly its not a separate disease, it’s just that your body is still coping with the change and needs more rest. If you have a hectic schedule, it’s still ok; even a 5 min stretch on your chair, a small nap, even a little bit of time out from the usual chaos will improve this.

6. Try to wear loose clothes, tight ones will make you feel more uncomfortable with hot flushes. Same goes for synthetic clothes.

7. And last but not the least- this I didn’t find in any of the books but as a daughter I felt it made a lot of changes for the better for my mom- compliment her. Anything, her saree, her style, her energy. This is a difficult time for her and she starts feeling ‘older’ it really gives her a reason to feel young and beautiful.

Hope it helps someone in some way.

  4. My mom is suffering from severe menopause, she is confused whether to remove it or not to remove, if she opt for surgery, these tips will be helpful for me..

    Well written :yes: :yes:

  5. gr8 article. very simple n easy steps to follow :waytogo: … my mum tooo underwent this surgery thing :(( … i think its common these days 😐

  6. i wana confess my mum went into menopause last month and that gave me tremors not that she was super sick or sumthing but the very sight of her over bleeding and going through some injections and all was too much to send me in rauma.i have never in my 22 years seen my mum like that on bed for 3 days and will never see her again like that i pray.the steps u said are really useful.thank god shes okay but my aunt whose a gynac says 70 percent women go through menopause related problems.i can understand ckg.i truely can!i pray very few ladies and their daughters have to go through this and may the transition to menopause be smooth :specs:

    1. same thing happened to my mom dear.
      she is a gyno herself….still she felt very uneasy and scared before surgery too.

      that’s why i read quite a lot about the whole thing and what relatives sply daughters can do to help mother or mother in law….

      if you need more info just let me know.

      i hope this will help you and your mum

  7. thanx chhavi for this informative post…. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: it will help us deal wid ourselves n people around us who go thru this better…. :thanks:

  8. Thanks for the tips Chhavi! 🙂 :thanks:
    My mom hasnt experienced it yet, but even now I see a smile light up her face everytime I give her compliments for her clothes or the food she makes. She comes and tells me with a big smile,like a child whos happy if his teacher gives him a star in his notebook, if someone in office compliments her saree or her work. I have realized that these small things or words of appreciation truely make a big difference. 🙂
