The menopause is a must for all women. Often difficult to take, it manifests itself in physical states but also in mood swings that are difficult to control. A short practical guide entitled Toi & Moi, we explain ourselves: menopause helps manage menopause. He explains precisely this period of dreaded female hormonal transition.
Managing menopause, the why and the how!
The menopause affects nearly 15 million women in France . This term is however abused and rarely accepted. But why ? Perhaps because menopause is still a taboo stage for women, who have difficulty living it and accepting it, and men who are not interested in this not so trivial feminine turning point, far from the. Indeed, menopause is the period in a woman’s life marked by the cessation of ovulation and the disappearance of periods. A perimenopause phase precedes it, which leads to hot flashes, irritability, fatigue and sleep disturbances.
The menopause usually occurs between 45 and 55 years. It is a natural phenomenon. It then occurs when the ovaries stop their hormonal secretion and the formation of an egg each month. It is said that menopause really sets in when periods have been absent for years. This new stage in the life of a woman is difficult to bear. For the simple reason that the woman feels, in her subconscious, dispossessed of the idea of being able to procreate again. Second, menopause also brings about age, time passing and old age. Notions which, in our so-called modern but often very patriarchal society, are difficult for women. It is then a question of creating oneself differently and of accepting this natural evolution of the cycle. Often easier said than done…!
What can you find in this handy guide?
Written under the pen of the two authors Charlotte Attry and Brigitte Carrère and drawings by Princess H, the guide Toi & Moi, we explain: menopause breaks the taboos surrounding the subjects of managing menopause. And it feels good ! In our society where youth reign supreme, this transition is badly experienced by the main interested party. This little guide breaks down preconceived ideas and shatters clichés. Indeed, fear not, hot flashes are not mandatory and it is possible not to gain 1.5 kilos per year! Rich in advice, meetings and expert opinions, this guide, with hints of humor, allows each woman concerned to understand the physical and psychological changes caused by perimenopause and menopause.
As with all stages of life, trust yourself and don’t be afraid to lose your footing sometimes! A woman’s life is guided by hormonal reactionsuncontrollable (sometimes!) that men must understand! And that’s all ! You do enough for them to support you in your evolution. Managing menopause is one of them. Be indulgent with your emotions and your hypersensitivity on the skin. For the physical inconveniences (hot flashes or sweat during the night…), do not hesitate to see your doctor or your gynecologist for daily relief and to prepare as well as possible for this transition. Sport can help you exercise gently. This is the case for swimming for example or even a good jog which will release too much energy. Don’t forget to be beautiful and rebellious !!!
