Get help for menopause symptoms such as mood swings from your Houston area doctor

Menopause Symptoms in Houston Area

Although we are learning much more about the symptoms women experience throughout menopause, what is most often discussed are the physical effects. In addition to hot flashes, night sweats, and low libido, significant emotional symptoms can occur as hormones fluctuate. In the Houston area office of Dr. Taryll Jenkins, women can discuss their concerns with an experienced, friendly team of professionals.

According to statistics, more than fifty percent of women who report physical symptoms of menopause also experience noticeable mood swings. Fluctuations in mood may occur abruptly and with alarming frequency. The emotional reaction to a trigger may seem inappropriately strong. Because mood is associated with hormone levels, a woman may find it very difficult to control her emotions throughout the day.

Mood swings can be a distressing part of menopause. Some of the ways mood swings may be experienced include:

  • Sudden change in mood from good to bad and vice versa
  • Lingering feelings of sadness or anger
  • Persistent irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Unexplainable emotions
  • Lack of motivation

When you recognize that mood swings may a symptom of menopause, you gain new perspective in understanding yourself. Understandably, you want to enjoy stability in your emotional wellness regardless of your stage of life. If you are finding it difficult to control your mood with healthy lifestyle and self-care habits, it is time to discuss your concerns with a trusted physician.

The hormonal link

Estrogen influences serotonin, also known as the happiness hormone. When the production or uptake of this chemical is disrupted, emotional balance can be difficult to maintain. This is the direct cause of mood swings. Additionally, the physical effects of menopause put a woman under stress. Discomfort from bouts of excessive sweating, fatigue from lack of quality sleep, and several other symptoms play a role in emotional wellness throughout menopause.

Finding your solution

With the advances that have occurred in reproductive and anti-aging medicine, there is no reason to suffer the ill-effects of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy continues to be a wonderful solution for regaining your physical and emotional equilibrium.
