With climax, swelling

The appearance of edema is a common complaint among women after forty years. In the absence of chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system and kidneys, the occurrence of edema is associated with the approach of menopause. During this period, the body undergoes a strong hormonal overload, there is a violation of electrolyte balance and, as a result, excess water accumulates in the tissues.

However, fluid retention in the body with menopause is an abnormal condition that requires mandatory correction and prevention. This article is devoted to the methods of struggle and prevention of edema during menopause.


The development of edema itself is not a disease, but only a symptom of a malfunction of organs and systems. Fluid retention is always a protective reaction of the body, aimed at compensating for negative processes occurring in the body.

Common causes of edema include:

  • lack of potassium and magnesium with increased sodium content,
  • hypertension, severe heart disease,
  • renal failure
  • endocrine diseases: hypothyroidism, diabetes.

Specific causes of edema during menopause are:

  • Violation of water-salt balance. The occurrence of such symptoms in a healthy person is associated with excessive consumption of table salt: an excessive amount of sodium ions accumulated in cell structures leads to an increase in osmotic intracellular pressure.

Against this background, the urinary system includes a protective mechanism aimed at reducing the concentration of salts and reducing cell pressure - fluid retention begins, as a result, edema appears, localized, as a rule, on the lower extremities.

Reducing daily water intake with pronounced edema is not an effective method to combat puffiness. The lack of fluid causes even greater electrolyte imbalance, leads to increased symptoms and the development of other pathological conditions.

  • Overweight. Fat cells easily attract water, but hardly give it back. This entails dangerous consequences for the body - the production of estrogen-like substances, leading not only to fluid retention, but also to an increased risk of developing cancer.

  • Disruption of the autonomic nervous system. Strong psychological, emotional stress, the presence of prolonged stress provoke excessive production of adrenaline, which affects the heart and blood vessels, which leads to the accumulation of excess fluid in the tissues.
  • Hormonal imbalancearising on the background of pregnancy, menopause, ovarian dysfunction, associated with insufficient ovarian production of progesterone and estrogen.

Swelling during menopause

After 45 years (sometimes earlier) in a woman's body, the extinction of the childbearing function begins: the production of estrogen decreases, the menstruation becomes shorter, and by the age of 50-55 it stops completely. Normal hormonal adjustment takes place gradually. But in the presence of negative factors (hard work, unhealthy diet and lifestyle, overweight), for many women, the level of hormones in the blood decreases in steps. A pathological course of menopause develops, which is accompanied by unpleasant symptoms in the form of hot flashes, dizziness and edema.

With a normal physiological course of menopause, swelling does not happen. Therefore, in the period of menopause, when detecting the first signs of fluid retention, it is impossible to allow the situation to drift. It is necessary to immediately contact a specialist for the appointment of adequate treatment.

    • varicose veins, in which the proliferation of venous asterisks, nets on the calves, ankles.

  • The appointment of sedative drugs that eliminate menopausal symptoms: anxiety, insomnia, nervous tension.

Against the background of such violations, there may be swelling of the legs.

Pathological menopause

The main causes of edema in this case are associated with a violation of the water-salt balance. Libido after menopause, the body accumulates excess sodium ions. Such salts prevent the natural outflow of fluid, and it involuntarily begins to accumulate in the intercellular space, which manifests itself as edema. The patient complains of swelling of the legs, which is accompanied by heaviness and even pain.

Such symptoms are especially pronounced in women in the evenings, after a long stay on their feet and during the heat. Unfortunately, little attention is paid to such symptoms, since edema is usually attributed to excessive nutrition of the legs. Special treatment is not carried out, and in the meantime fluid retention provokes an incredible load on all internal organs, as well as on the cardiovascular system. Against the background of fluid retention, women may develop arrhythmia, hypertension and exacerbation of chronic ailments.

Do not forget that the climax begins in women is not at a young age. And by the time menopause begins, a woman already has a bunch of chronic diseases. Moreover, with menopause, all negative processes in the body are aggravated, which often leads to relapses or new diseases. Therefore, with the appearance of swelling of the legs, one should not unambiguously write off the fluid delay directly to menopause, but it is worth thinking about finding out the true causes of this phenomenon. Of course, the origin of the swelling of the legs can be not dangerous. The most common causes provocateurs are factors in the form:

PMS is very often characterized by swelling of the face.

Why swelling occurs

It is possible to identify the main causes of the appearance of effluents:

  1. Violation in the system of water-salt metabolism.
    In the body of the lady accumulates an excess of sodium ions. They begin to prevent the natural outflow of fluid. As a result, water begins to accumulate in the intercellular space. As a rule, women develop leg edema in the lower leg and foot area, which are accompanied by a feeling of heaviness, and sometimes pain. Ladies face more pronounced leg swelling in the evening, after having spent the whole day on their feet or during the heat.
  2. Excess weight.
    For the normal functioning of adipose tissue requires a large amount of water. Therefore, it attracts water, which is in no hurry to part. When a woman is overweight, the adipose tissue is abundant and water is attracted in large quantities. Thus, edema appears. In order to remove them you need to get rid of extra pounds.
  3. Take some drugs.
    Swelling can provoke the following drugs: anti-inflammatory drugs, antidepressants, drugs that block calcium, and hormonal drugs.
  4. A tumor on the ovaries, kidneys, or liver leads to swelling of the legs or the whole body.

Regardless of the cause of the symptom, it cannot be neglected. It is necessary to immediately seek medical help to relieve swelling.

You should know that the fluid retained in the body, repeatedly increases the load on all internal organs, and especially the cardiovascular system. The lady on the background of water retention may develop hypertension, arrhythmia and other diseases. In addition, the possible exacerbation of existing chronic diseases.

Hormonal imbalance is the main cause of edema.

At the initial climacteric stage, called premenopause, an imbalance of hormones begins in the female body. The ovaries reduce the synthesis of sex hormones: progesterone and estrogen.

The pituitary gland responds to hormonal failure and produces more of its hormones that stimulate the activity of the ovaries - follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

Stimulated ovaries begin to intensively produce sex hormones and their level in the blood increases. The body has to adapt to changing hormone levels, and this requires an increased amount of fluid.

Changes in the central nervous system provoke edema

During menopause, the lady's body is more prone to stress. A woman begins to react sharply even to the most insignificant irritant. In order for the body to cope with a stressful situation, the adrenal glands synthesize a large amount of adrenaline. This hormone increases the load on the organs of the cardiovascular system and they require more water.

Against the background of an increased level of adrenaline in a woman, thirst and hunger increase. In order for the fluid that has entered the body to be able to filter out normally, the kidneys are forced to work intensively.

Even the most "scary" menopause can be defeated at home! Just do not forget two or three times a day.

But in menopausal age, not all women have kidneys that can cope with this task well and water accumulates in the body. In order not to deal with such edema, women should take sedatives and increase their stress resistance. This can be done with the help of yoga or auto-training.

Hypothyroidism development

A woman in menopausal age may develop hypothyroidism, a pathological condition in which the thyroid gland synthesizes an insufficient amount of its hormones. The main symptom of this disease is swelling. Only, edemas in hypothyroidism have significant differences from edemas that arise for other reasons. Thus, in cases of disturbances in the work of the organs of the cardiovascular system, the ladies generally swell the legs. When there is kidney disease, there is swelling of the face.

In hypothyroidism, the lady is confronted with swelling of the entire body — face, legs, hands, and even the anterior abdominal wall. At the onset of the disease, the severity of this symptom is weak and the patient often perceives the swelling appeared as weight gain. Over time, the woman will have severe edema. Untimely started therapy contributes to the progression of the disease. Therefore, it is important to know the distinctive characteristics of edema that occur during hypothyroidism.

The swollen fabric feels cold. It has a pasty structure and a pale shade. If you press on it with your finger, then the fossa appears only when the form of the disease is neglected.

How to treat

Swelling in menopause is not a normal condition and therefore, requires treatment. Every woman needs to know what to do when she finds herself swelling. First of all, you need to find out the reason for their appearance in order to prevent the deterioration of health.

To this end, you should contact the therapist and undergo a medical examination. If necessary, the therapist will refer the lady to the necessary specialist - endocrinologist, gynecologist, cardiologist, etc.

Hormone therapy

If there are no serious abnormalities in the functioning of the internal organs and the thyroid gland, then the patient is diagnosed with idiopathic edema in the background of menopause. In such cases, the woman will be prescribed sex hormone replacement therapy to correct hormonal imbalance.

The patient is prescribed combination drugs when there is an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone. The most common drugs of this type include: Angelique, Divina, Klimonorm, Klymene, Femoston. When a woman's uterus is removed, she is prescribed products containing only estrogen: Klimara, Proginova, Estrofem, Ovestin, etc.

Why during menopause are often observed swelling in women?

Swelling of the legs may not appear because of the climax itself.

During this period of a woman’s life, there is a sharp decline in the sex hormones that are responsible for many organs and their systems, including the work of the heart and blood vessels.

Edema is a reaction to the fact that not all parts of the body are equally well supplied with blood.

Causes of swelling in menopause

Remember that menopause itself is not a disease.

This is just a condition that comes to a woman after she turns about 45 years old. If this period passes normally, without pathologies, then the edema does not develop, and the woman will continue to live and enjoy the fullness of life. And if an excess fluid is retained in the body and no excess fluid is removed, then this can speak about major troubles and health problems, such as:

  1. Improper exercise the body of water-salt metabolism. If too much sodium ions accumulate in the blood, this leads to an increase in osmotic pressure. And the increased osmotic pressure leads to the fact that water penetrates into the structure of the cell and is retained in it. If such a reason really takes place, the swelling will appear in the area of ​​the legs, and it is on the feet and legs. Usually such swelling in large numbers occur in the hot season, as well as in the afternoon, towards evening. If left unattended, such a problem can lead to heart rhythm disturbances, hypertension and exacerbation of existing chronic diseases.
  2. Excess on the body of a woman adipose tissue. The main feature of adipose tissue is that it attracts water in large quantities to itself, and then does not want to part with it. But the paradox is that such a phenomenon is necessary for the adipose tissue to function normally. To do this, the body needs a large supply of water. If the adipose tissue is too much, then it attracts a large amount of moisture. Thus edemas are formed. To do this, you need to struggle with excess weight and not allow excess kilos to be deposited on the body.
  3. For the period of menopause is characterized by changes in central nervous system women. It becomes more susceptible to stress than usual, since the central nervous system reacts to even the most minimal irritations. In order to survive a stressful situation, the adrenal glands are forced to secrete a large amount of adrenaline. This hormone increases the load on the heart and circulatory system. Because of this, these organs need more water. Against the background of such a condition, a woman has increased thirst and hunger. In order for excess water entering the body to be able to filter out normally, intensive kidney work is needed. And because of their age, they can not always do it well, so the excess water accumulates in the body. In order to avoid edema on the nerves of the soil, you need to try to protect your psyche as much as possible from the harmful effects of stress factors.
  4. Swelling due to hormonal imbalance also have a place to be in menopause, as the level of some hormones is constantly decreasing, and others are becoming more than necessary. The body is trying to adapt to new living conditions, and for this, again, an increased amount of fluid is required. In this case, swelling can be avoided only with hormone replacement therapy.
  5. Sometimes swelling can trigger some drugs. К ним относятся непосредственно препараты, которые содержат гормоны, антидепрессанты, противовоспалительные препараты, медикаменты, блокирующие кальций.

Attention! Если при менопаузе Вас мучают постоянные отеки, то не стоит откладывать визит к врачу.This is necessary in order to find out their exact cause, and immediately begin the process of treatment.

Treatment of edema in menopausal women

As practice shows, for the period of menopause is characteristic not one cause of edema, but several. Therefore, the treatment of such changes in menopause is mostly aimed at influencing the cause of edema, and try to eliminate it as much as possible.

  • First of all, you need to establish the cause of hormonal imbalance in the body (in addition to the menopause itself). In order to maintain the body in this difficult time for him, hormone replacement therapy is required. This is necessary in order to maintain a normal state of vital activity of an organism at a given time, if it is unable to cope with the problem itself.
  • There are situations when the state of health does not allow a woman to take hormonal medications, as they have a rather impressive list of contraindications, including edema syndrome. In this case, alternative methods of treatment may be required, one of which is therapy with phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are analogs of female sex hormones that are found in certain medicinal plants. These funds affect the woman’s body in a similar way to the female sex hormones themselves. Only the action of phytoestrogens is much milder and does not cause a large number of side effects.

  • Since menopause is often accompanied by nervous stresses and worries about the approaching old age and spoiled appearance, this should be dealt with with the help of light sedatives that block the excitation centers in the brain. Also try to look at the stresses and conflicts on the other hand: abstract yourself from them as much as possible and do not take everything to heart. If you have time and opportunity, it will be useful to go to a professional psychologist or to attend several trainings like “How to get rid of stress and start living a full life?”
  • If you notice that water is retained in large quantities in your body, then diuretic agents will come to your aid: they will help to release excess fluid from the body. Try to use diuretics on a plant-based: they affect the body more carefully, do not wash out the calcium from the bones and other useful elements.
  • When menopause is not superfluous, the use of homeopathic therapy, as it has virtually no contraindications and has good feedback when getting rid of menopausal problems.
  • In addition to drug therapy, do not forget that in the age of menopause, your body needs additional nourishment, so check with your doctor and pick up the complex of vitamins and minerals that is recommended just for menopause. Properly chosen vitamins will daily give strength to your body, and so you can quickly deal with all the unpleasant symptoms of menopause.
  • If you have the opportunity to visit a resort with hydrogen sulfide springs, then do not miss it. These very sources very well affect the nervous and sexual systems during menopause, they can significantly heal the body and improve the condition of a woman.

What is swelling, the causes of

Edema is a pathological accumulation of fluid in the organs and extracellular spaces of tissues.. When menopause occurs swelling of the hands, face, but most often women complain of swelling of the legs, especially in the evening after a long walk.

Fluid retention indicates an uneven blood supply to all tissues. Perhaps a woman manifests pathological menopause, that is, too rapid extinction of functions. The body does not have time to restructure and responds to this with various violations.

The onset of puffiness begins because the protein content in the blood decreases, as a result, the plasma pressure decreases and fluid is released from the blood into the tissue. I.e, water-salt metabolism is disturbed.

Often women do not go to the doctor, not taking the edema seriously. But the cardiovascular system, the kidneys are under enormous stress at this moment, which can lead to dangerous complications.

Causes of fluid retention: what to do

The main culprits of edema are serious diseases.:

  • Chronic renal disease.

  • Venous insufficiency, varicose veins, venous thrombosis.
  • Chronic heart disease.

In addition, the swelling appears due to the following problems.:

  • Overweight. Adipose tissue needs plenty of water to maintain its existence. The more fat, the more water is retained.
  • Nervous stress. A woman is very worried about her condition. As a result, the adrenal glands produce an increased amount of adrenaline, which creates an additional load on the heart. The woman is thirsty, uses a lot of water, which the kidneys are unable to remove.
  • Sex hormone imbalance. Some are down, others are up. The body does not have time to get used to a new state for it, reacting to this by edema.
  • Medication: hormones, antidepressants, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, calcium blockers.

Before treatment, a woman needs to undergo a full examination to identify serious diseases. Consultation with an endocrinologist, cardiologist, phlebologist, and nephrologist is necessary.

You can not reduce fluid intake for edema. This will further disrupt the water-salt metabolism.

If the disease is not detected, and the cause of edema was the restructuring of the body due to menopause, then the doctor will prescribe therapy to correct hormonal levels.

Diuretics are prescribed to eliminate severe puffiness.:

  • Furosemide. This is a strong diuretic that increases the excretion of calcium and magnesium ions. Therefore, it can not be used for a long time, only as a means of first aid.

Signs and causes of edema during menopause

They can occur as a separate phenomenon, or as secondary manifestations of disease. It is very important to determine exactly why the swelling in menopause. From the diagnosis depends on the way to deal with them. Visually determine the violation is easy, it is enough to push the skin with effort. If a white mark remains and the dent does not disappear immediately, then we can talk about edema. The burning, pain, feeling of heaviness, the feeling that by the evening the shoes had become cramped testify to them. Do not assume that such symptoms are harmless and will pass on their own. Unfortunately, without measures taken, the situation will gradually worsen, leading to chronic forms.

Note! Edema provoke the development of varicose veins, cardiovascular diseases, or are a consequence of them.

Risk factors for fluid retention during menopause are:

  • lack of motor activity
  • tight shoes with high heels,
  • the presence of excess weight
  • Exercise for a long time.

Also, the causes of edema lie in chronic diseases. They appear on the background of failures in the thyroid gland, renal failure, the development of diabetes, sudden pressure surges. Heart and venous insufficiency are also causes of disturbed water - salt balance.

Allergic reactions to products, smells, flowering plants, and medication are becoming such a cause. During menopause, there are various changes and the exact cause of fluid retention will help to identify only a complete examination with the involvement of a phlebologist, urologist, cardiologist.

Climax as a cause of swelling

The restructuring of the body rarely takes place without side effects, especially such a large-scale, as menopause. Therefore, it is necessary to be sensitive to the slightest changes in well-being. In this period, false alarm is better than the missed symptoms of a terrible disease.

Must remember! Edema is not a harmless short-term phenomenon, and most often a warning of serious disruptions in the body.

Gradual changes affect all systems, so they begin to work with an increased load, sometimes not coping. The task of the woman is to respond adequately and in time, in a timely manner referring to a doctor who will prescribe vitamin complexes, sedatives, give recommendations on nutrition and exercise.

Edema in menopause in women exposed hands, neck, face, but the most large-scale manifestations fall on the lower limbs. A constant load when walking requires an increased blood supply, and the cardiovascular system is not able to provide it. The resulting contradiction becomes the cause of edematous phenomena in the evening. Increased loads fall on the urinary-genital and excretory system, the violation of water-salt balance adds work to them. When climax is necessary to try to facilitate their work, changing the style and rhythm of life.

Pathology or norm?

Short-term one-time edema occurs even in absolutely healthy people, regardless of age and gender. The reason are incorrectly chosen diets, the initial period of therapeutic fasting, excessive fluid intake, stress. Such cases do not require immediate treatment to the doctor and treatment. The body itself will restore the disturbed balance. But when the swelling becomes systematic and is observed for a long time - it is time to take action.

Among the symptoms that indicate the development of the disease, edema appears among the first. What they warn about:

  • possible inflammation in the kidneys,
  • type 1 or type 2 diabetes begins to develop,
  • the thyroid gland works at the limit of possibilities and it needs urgent help
  • there was a blood clot,
  • cirrhosis of the liver develops,
  • hormonal failure occurs.

During menopause, an imbalance of hormones is inevitable, and the rest must be carefully checked after an examination.

How is the treatment carried out?

The purpose of the course depends on the causes of edema. Applied behavioral therapy, folk remedies and drugs. Since the main factor of edema in menopause remains a riot of hormones, the use of a drug that restores balance and reduces negative manifestations is required. Most often prescribed synthetic drugs estrogen. Klimonorm, Proginova, Tsi-Klim, Klimodinon are among them. Edema accompany stress, neurotic conditions. Therefore, include in the appointment of sedatives, for example, Novopassit. It is necessary and targeted introduction of fluid from the body. This is facilitated by the reception of Furosemide, Diakarba.

Attention! Strong diuretic drugs remove their body potassium, magnesium, calcium. Their uncontrolled use is unacceptable.

All appointments are made by the doctor based on the examination and test results. To achieve positive results, it is necessary to strictly adhere to the recommendations, while at the same time taking preventive measures to prevent relapse.

How to remove puffiness: behavioral therapy

The inconvenience, pain, severity and aesthetic unattractiveness during edema cause discontent, the desire to get rid of them and not allow recurrence. This will help in the simple rules of a healthy life.

Edema as a sign of pathology

Do not forget that the climax begins in women is not at a young age. And by the time menopause begins, a woman already has a bunch of chronic diseases. Moreover, with menopause, all negative processes in the body are aggravated, which often leads to relapses or new diseases. Therefore, with the appearance of swelling of the legs, one should not unambiguously write off the fluid delay directly to menopause, but it is worth thinking about finding out the true causes of this phenomenon.

Of course, the origin of the swelling of the legs can be not dangerous. The most common causes provocateurs are factors in the form of:

  • sedentary work
  • uncomfortable shoes,
  • overweight
  • great physical exertion.

But quite often fluid retention in the body is a sign of quite serious diseases. Acute swelling of the legs that develops within a couple of days may indicate:

  • deep vein thrombosis, which is accompanied by cyanosis and severe pain,
  • post-traumatic swelling, always having pain in the projection of damage,
  • acute venous insufficiency, manifested by fatigue and pain after heavy loads,
  • aggravation of articular pathologies in which there is aching or acute pain, and the limb loses its motor abilities.

In chronic edema in women, one may suspect the presence of:

  • varicose veins
  • chronic venous insufficiency,
  • chronic heart failure
  • hypertension,

  • thyroid problems
  • chronic kidney disease,
  • renal cell failure
  • diabetes and obesity.

Important! To disregard the swelling in such pathologies is not just stupid, but also life-threatening.

In addition, there may be allergic swelling, triggered by drugs:

  • glucocorticosteroids,
  • calcium antagonists,
  • anti-inflammatory nonsteroidal drugs
  • hormonal drugs containing estrogen, progesterone, testosterone,
  • diuretics,
  • monoamine oxidase inhibitors,
  • thiazolidinedione used to treat diabetes.

The reasons for the appearance of puffiness in women can be many, and it is not worth writing off this phenomenon only as a climax. In chronic edema, you should think about problems in the body and consult a doctor to be examined. In this case, you may need to consult not only the gynecologist, but also the urologist, cardiologist, phlebologist.
