Now you need not worry about it, it is the natural physiological activity. Women in the age group between (45-55 years) may experience prolonged periods
or heavy periods
due to hormonal imbalances as they are already in transition phase leading to menopause. You may experience hot flushes, palpitations, tiredness, vaginal dryness
, anxiety, depression, forgetfulness, etc.
Symptoms vary in different patients, some may have mild symptoms, others may be required to get treated due to risk of developing cardiac disease, osteoporosis
, anxiety or severe depression
. Consult with a PCP, get regular check up done so that coping with menopausal symptoms may get easier. You may require medication, special diet chart, change to healthy lifestyle.
