Benefits of Menopause

 

1.    No More PMS

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, PMS can cause a range of physical and emotional issues for at least 85 percent of menstruating women. Though the beginning of menopause can cause some hormonal issues, it can also provide relief from food cravings, irritability and exhaustion.

 

2.    Say Goodbye to Hormonal Headaches

 

A recent study by the National Headache Foundation states that 70 percent of women who suffer from migraines have menstrual migraines. Those who suffer from menstrual migraines see a huge improvement when going through menopause.

 

3.    Change in the Size of Uterine Fibroids

 

Fibroids usually grow with an increase in estrogen and progesterone levels, which occur during menstruation. Depending on the size of uterine fibroids they can cause pain, heavy bleeding and pressure on the bladder. While estrogen levels decrease, fibroids either stop growing or shrink.
