Activities to Ease Symptoms
One of your first activities once you begin menopause should be a visit to your doctor. Have a list of questions ready. Asking and receiving all kinds of questions can feel uncomfortable, so just understand this: your doctor is there to help you. Ask your gynecologist about any problems you can think of, including menopause and sex problems. Know that if you are as open and straightforward as possible, you are helping yourself in the long run.
After your doctor’s visit, you should have a better idea of a diet or exercise plan that might benefit you and help control some of the symptoms of menopause.
Your doctor may suggest a blood test for menopause especially if perimenopause symptoms are making your life miserable.
Journaling is another great way to take action and help explore some of those thoughts and feelings you have toward menopause.
Preparing your spouse for menopause is vitally important. Let those around you know exactly what you’re going through.
And finally, don’t forget to rely on your female friendships for some comfort and words of wisdom about their menopause symptoms.
