Yes, stress is indeed a factor when it comes to a woman's menstrual cycle. Along with weight issues and physical activity, stress can wreak havoc on your cycle.
The more that you are stressing over things in your life, the more that you are affecting your hormones negatively which can cause certain irregularities on the way your body works. This is especially true when your stress become anxiety.
Anxiousness create a lot of tension and the psychological repercussions you can suffer because of it are both destructive and disruptive. And this is definitely something you should avoid.
Hopefully your situation will get better and you can be as comfortable as you can be. Best of luck!View Thread
I'm so sorry to hear that you are having a hard time at this stage of your life. I understand that this is a phase all women will eventually go through. But I also believe that each one has a different experience from the rest. One woman may have it easier than others and seemingly breeze through the experience, many would have a difficult time, and there could also be one that will even have it worse than most.
So, hang in there and try to find more comforts that can make you overlook the bad days. Also find activities which can get you to enjoy to take your mind off the stress so you'll worry less.
Even though people's voices tend to irritate you, try talking to friends who are going through menopause as well, in this way you won't feel alone in your struggle. You will have a healthy exchange of thought which can even broaden your perception on this things, helping you understand it even more. Plus, the time spent bonding with your peers will help keep relationships going, and your mind from fixating over your anxieties. You can even help each other battle out this struggle.
Hopefully you can overcome this and feel better again. Goodluck!View Thread
