Every woman will go through menopause at some point, but not everyone will have the same experience. Some women will suffer more than others and sometimes that can be at the extreme end of the spectrum. The question is, why does this happen? If you seem to be suffering more than your friends, you probably want to know if there is a reason, and if there is anything you can do to prevent it.
Why Does Menopause Bring Along Symptoms?
The first part to answering this question, is to look at why menopause brings with it uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, weight gain, mood swings, reduced energy and heart palpitations to name just a few.
Menopause is the end of fertility, our oestrogen levels reduce until our ovaries stop functioning, and this of course occurs as we age. The lack of certain hormones and the constant changing of others, has an unfortunate effect on the brain, our ‘Autonomic Nervous System’ (ANS) becomes imbalanced, as the hormones we’ve had for so long start to leave our body. It’s this that causes us to experience those confusing parts of menopause, such as mood swings and memory loss. Those are the truly frustrating things that make us feel like we are going crazy, but of course, it’s not that at all. Then there are the physical effects of menopause, which you’re probably all too familiar with by now.
So Why Does Menopause Affect Women Differently?
When it comes to hot flushes, some research has shown that women have different tolerance levels to changes in core body temperature. But this wouldn’t explain the other varying degrees of menopausal symptoms. The simple answer is that our bodies are of course all genetically different, and it’s our genetics that play a big part in how we react to the changes in hormones. Certain environmental factors, such as smoking, can lead to premature menopause, which could be one of the reasons you are going through the change earlier than your friends. However in the most part and to answer the question ‘why do some women suffer more than others through menopause?’ it’s down to genetics.
