Xiao Liu, who works in a foreign company, is 33 years old and has just been promoted to department head. She is a typical strong woman. After working for so long, she almost never feels tired. However, in recent weeks, she has felt physically and mentally exhausted, accompanied by symptoms such as irritability, insomnia, dry skin, sallow hair color, menstrual disorders, and sometimes even tired of working. A friend suggested that she take some health care products, but spending thousands of dollars was of no avail. Later, the gynecologist told her that these were actually symptoms of menopause. She's very strange. She's only in her early 30s, why is she menopausal?
According to clinical research, currently 27% of female white-collar workers aged 30-40 have menopausal symptoms. With the accelerated pace of society and changes in lifestyle, more and more women have advanced menopause, known as "hidden menopause.". This is caused by premature decline in ovarian function and decreased estrogen secretion levels, and is related to three reasons: 1. The age of menarche in women has advanced from the past 19 years to the modern 12.5 years, and the age of menopause has also moved forward. "The concept of childbearing has changed. Many women choose not to have children, and their ovaries lose the opportunity to recuperate, accelerating aging.". 3. High mental pressure and reduced physical activity reduce the sensitivity of primitive follicles to pituitary hormones, increase the number of atretic follicles, and decrease the number of mature follicles.
The symptoms of recessive menopause are mainly autonomic nervous dysfunction, manifested as skin dehydration and wrinkles, breast ptosis, body weight gain, and anxiety. Some women may suddenly experience symptoms such as flushing, sweating, and a faster heartbeat, or diarrhea or constipation due to gastrointestinal dysfunction. These changes make women feel anxious and easily agitated, causing a psychological vicious circle. Modern medical research has confirmed that depression or depression can reduce the amount of menstruation in women, and even lead to amenorrhea.
Some studies have shown that the risk of cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women who develop menopausal symptoms in advance is 2.7 times higher than in normal women. By the age of 50, the risk of osteoporosis has also increased significantly, which requires attention. Workplace women should learn to reduce stress, not set too high goals for themselves, let alone pursue perfection too much; Handle the relationship between family and work well, get along with family more, and learn to pour out pressure; In addition to work, you must have your own interests and hobbies. There is also a need for health awareness. If you suddenly do not menstruate, or even become infertile at reproductive age, you must seek medical attention in a timely manner.
