Menopause Mood Swings

The Experience of Menopause Mood Swings

There are currently 40 million American women approaching the point of menopause. 

When a female is born, she contains 1 to 2 million egg-containing follicles in her ovaries. These represent all of the eggs she will ever have. 

From the onset of puberty in her teenage years, she will begin her monthly menstrual cycles. 

This means that her body will release an egg into her fallopian tubes every month. If the egg remains unfertilized by a mans sperm, a woman's body will expel it as part of her monthly period. 

Over time, the ovaries gradually stop making estrogen and progesterone. 

These are the hormones that have regulated her menstrual cycle throughout her life. 

Menopause is defined as going 12 consecutive months without menstruation. 

Main physical symptoms of menopauseinclude...

Menopause is a major milestone in a woman's life. 

Most women experience major symptoms including mood swings, irritability, and even depression. 


The time of menopause is preceded by a time period called peri-menopause. This time usually begins in the mid 40's. 

During this transitional period, the ovaries gradually reduce the production of estrogen. This lowers fertility and cause irregular cycles. 

The average length of peri-menopause is approximately 4 years. This is highly variable for both onset and variation. 

Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 50 and 52. 

Premature menopause 

Some woman lose the function of ovarian function before the age of 40. This is called premature menopause. 

Regardless of when menopause occurs, it can be challenging both mentally and physically, especially if it's tough for you to get a handle on menopause mood swings. 

For this reason, it's important for a woman to build a network of supportive individuals. 

Menopause is a natural stage in a woman's life and it's nothing to be frightened or embarrassed about. 

Diet is Important

Did you know that in less developed countries in Asia, they don't even have a word for "hot flashes", because women don't suffer from this? 

They eat more fresh, plant-based nutrients, daily. 

Balancing Hormones

Your hormones definitely do affect your emotions. 

The hormones go through the lymphatic system. This is where we house our emotions. 

Irritability and aggressiveness are due to the hormones. If you experience depression or unusual ups and downs, this is due to changes in hormones. 

During menopause, you just can't seem to handle the stress like you used to. Things that didn't bother you so much before, are driving you crazy now. 

Determining Hormone Levels 

By finding out where your hormones are, you can then balance them. Balancing the brain to the glands brings the emotions back into alignment. 

Once hormones are back in balance, you can start to feel like you used to feel. 

Herbs and bioidentical hormones will get you back to a place of feeling good and in balance once again.
