Menstruation and menopause are a part of a woman's biological cycle. Menstruation marks a woman's puberty and indicates that she is fertile to reproduce while menopause indicates the halt of her fertility.
The average age for menopause observed in women in the US is 51 years. It is accompanied by various symptoms which include mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, urinary problems, etc. These symptoms can be experienced by women before their last period and they may even extend for some months or years after that.
What Causes Itching During Menopause?
Menopause is a natural condition which marks the end of fertility in women. Mood swings, cognitive changes, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats, disturbance in sleeping, irregular periods and emotional changes are the symptoms marking the onset of menopause. Obesity, fat build-up in the abdomen, shrinking of the breasts and hair loss are some other effects of menopause.
Lack of estrogen occurs during or post menopause; this hormone plays a crucial role in building blocks of skin. Loss of this hormone can result in thin and itchy skin which affects the genitals, body as well as the face. This symptom is also called vulvar pruritus; it is capable of triggering pain and even makes sexual intercourse painful.
Pruritus can result in bumps on the skin, rashes, reddening of skin and dry skin.
Home Remedies That Can Help In Getting Rid Of Itching Due To Menopause:
- Moisturization: Do keep your skin moisturised after bathing and whenever you feel your skin is dry.
Doing so will help in reducing itching-related dryness. If the itching is too severe or you suffer from pruritus, use odour-free moisturizer, specially natural ones like coconut oil or aloe vera gel to get more benefits.
Complications Linked With Menopause:
- Complications such as cardiovascular diseases which are linked with lack of estrogen in the body, urinary incontinence or involuntary urination due to lack of elasticity and osteoporosis due to low bone density can develop in women having menopause.
- Wrinkles, skin pigmentation, acne and rashes are some other issues women undergoing menopause might suffer from.
