Did you know that stress is doubly hard for menopausal women, often compounding symptoms? A Gennev survey revealed that 92% of women reported more stress on top of menopause-related anxiety in 2020. And 45% of the women surveyed shared they were struggling more than they ever had. They sighted working from home, loneliness and isolation, financial burdens, caring for elderly parents and helping their children manage remote schooling as key factors.
Even though COVID-related restrictions have lessened since that study was completed, stress continues to impact women’s moods and wellbeing. And snappy communication and short-tempered flairs remain among symptoms our patients continue to report.
If you are experiencing moodiness and quick-tempered outbursts more than you would like to admit, Gennev’s Health Coach team offers five suggestions that may help smooth out some of those sharp edges.
If none of these tips work for you, or you find your quality of life is being impacted by mood swings, book a virtual visit with a menopause specialist to help you determine if hormone fluctuations are a contributing factor. They will help you find the treatment options that are best for you.
The information on the Gennev site is never meant to replace the care of a qualified medical professional. Hormonal shifts throughout menopause can prompt a lot of changes in your body, and simply assuming something is “just menopause” can leave you vulnerable to other possible causes. Always consult with your physician or schedule an appointment with one of Gennev's telemedicine doctors before beginning any new treatment or therapy.
