Menopause is a pretty major event that women go through, but there’s a lot that we don’t talk about. Women’s health is, unfortunately, not always the most heavily covered content online as well as within the medical community. In this article we are going to talk about some of the lesser known facts about menopause, as well as going over some of the symptoms, since many women have no idea they are even going through menopause until they seek professional help.
Here are 10 facts no one tells you about menopause symptoms
Your heart may start to skip a beat and it has nothing to do with love.
Menopause symptoms can be super minor or sometimes quite serious. Our first entry may seem minor, but its effects are something you definitely will want to be on the lookout for. Your heart skipping a beat might seem like a sweet thing when you see it on TV or in the movies, but in real life it’s a very different story. People going through menopause will often experience heart palpitations, and this can be for one of two reasons. Either your hormonal changes are causing this irregularity, or you actually have developed a heart issue. The latter is rare, but still can happen to anyone, so thankfully there’s a way to sort of check. If the palpitations cause you to feel weak, have a heart time breathing, or last more than a few minutes, then you are probably suffering from an actual heart issue. Nieca Goldberg, a woman’s health specialist and MD at NYU, recommends that you get your heart checked out if you are at all concerned with this symptom, and that it’s usually pretty simple to get the problem resolved quickly.
