2. Increased Period Bleeding
Changes in hormone profiles will eventually lead to heavy period bleeding. During the initial stages of menopause, the uterine lining thickens, intensifying the bleeding during shedding. Lowered progesterone and estrogen levels contribute to this symptom of menopause.
Heavier periods make life uncomfortable for pre-menopausal women. The excess bleeding can be challenging to manage, and there is the chance that it could affect your work and social life. Premenopausal women experiencing heavy bleeding are less likely to venture outside of the comfort of their homes. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to treat the excess bleeding.
As time progresses, the bleeding will diminish as the effects of menopause accelerate.
However, it is possible that increased bleeding may be a symptom of another disorder, such as cystic fibrosis. These adverse health conditions can be very dangerous if left untreated. If you experience any abnormalities with the intensity of your period, consult with your doctor immediately.
