For many women, menopause can bring about physical and emotional changes that can be difficult to cope with. One of the most common yet often overlooked symptoms of menopause is digestive issues such as stomach pain, indigestion and nausea.
The cause of these stomach problems during menopause is related to the changing levels of hormones in the body. During menopause, a woman’s body produces less estrogen and progesterone which can have an adverse effect on digestion. Without enough of these hormones, digestion may slow down and make it harder for the body to break down food properly, leading to a buildup of gas or bloating.
Other common digestive issues experienced during menopause include constipation and diarrhea due to hormone imbalances. As the female reproductive system nears its end cycle, this imbalance can lead to painful cramps in the abdominal area as well as general discomfort in the stomach area.
There are ways you can alleviate or reduce your digestive issues while going through menopause. Eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day instead of larger meals infrequently will help reduce bloating because your body won’t have to work as hard breaking down large amounts of food at once. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day will also help keep your digestion moving smoothly and efficiently so that your stomach does not hurt or become upset easily.
Finally, making sure you get regular exercise is important for maintaining your overall health but it is even more important during menopause in order to keep your hormones balanced and digestion regular. Exercise helps boost serotonin levels which not only improve mood but helps to regulate digestion too!
