Understanding The Value Of Acne Treatments

Hi, I'm Jackie Gibon. I still struggle with acne that started in my teen years despite sitting firmly in mid-adulthood. Complicating medical conditions, including polycystic ovarian syndrome, make it difficult to overcome acne outbreaks that occur as hormones flare. Thanks to my strong interest in skincare routines, I have gleaned information that helps keep my skin in good shape otherwise. I just need help when my hormone levels run amok. Thankfully, I can rely on my dermatologist to provide adequate acne treatments that bring my skin back into line. I hope to share my experiences with these treatments with you through this site. I will talk about acne treatments, skincare routines and products you can use to control outbreaks. Please feel free to drop by anytime. Thanks for visiting.

Understanding And Dealing With Early Menopause After Oophorectomy Surgeries

Health & Medical Blog

You are suffering from a variety of problems with your uterus and ovaries, problems that require an oophorectomy. Unfortunately, you're likely to suffer from a variety of emotional problems, but you can help manage their severity by understanding the ways they will be impacted and how to minimize the severity.

Oophorectomy Surgeries Will Trigger Early Menopause

Oophorectomy surgeries are a type of hysterectomy that removes the uterus and at least one of your ovaries. This surgery is very rarely performed, because of the major impact it has on a woman's body. It is typically done only when serious cervical cancer has infected the ovaries and there's no choice but to remove them.

Immediate menopause always occurs when both ovaries are removed. However, it isn't necessarily a side effect if only one is removed. That said, removing even one ovary is likely to speed up the onset of menopause, as your body will have decreased levels of estrogen and progesterone.

Once menopause begins, you're likely to go through a wide range of emotional side effects, including:

  • Severe anxiety and irritability
  • Mood swings, including moments of mania and depression
  • Difficultly sleeping, including night sweats and fatigue
  • Relationship problems with the ones you love

Recovering Is A Multi-Step Process

There are several ways that you can recover emotionally after this surgery. Many women will use hormone replacement therapy to balance out, but this is a treatment more appropriate for younger women. Generally, doctors suggest a few simple recovery methods, including:

  • Sleeping well to promote physical and emotional healing
  • Performing relaxation techniques (such as meditation and yoga) to relieve anxiety
  • Creating a support group of friends and family for difficult emotional moments
  • Exercising regularly to promote better physical and emotional health

Exercising after this surgery is difficult because of the major impact it has on your body. However, performing deep breathing exercises, stretches, and movement exercises in bed can help keep your body from getting too sore.

After the first few months have passed, you're likely to be in better physical shape. Then, you can perform some simple exercises, such as walking and light strength exercises. However, make sure to avoid core exercises as they can cause serious concerns.

Following these simple exercises can help you recover from your early menopause in a safe and stable manner. However, if you are still suffering from emotional problems, please talk to your gynecologist right away. They can find a treatment method (including hormone replacement therapy) that can give you the emotional stability that you need in this difficult time. Contact a gynecology clinic for more information.
