Menopause is often associated with negative perceptions, such as a lifeless area signaling the end of fertility, youth, and sexuality. Women may mourn the end of a stage of life when their biological value is over - menopause is regarded as a "marker of aging" and is translated into Arabic as "Age of depression."
Menopause is frequently associated with a number of unpleasant symptoms such as anxiety, depression, decreased libido, vaginal dryness, sleeplessness, difficulties concentrating, and vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes and night sweats). These symptoms may stay for years after menopause.
However, the lack of awareness and misunderstanding around this topic made it difficult for women to address their concerns with their healthcare provider and continue their life normally.
Based on that, we invited Dr. Deemah Salem, an Obstetrician-Gynecologist (OBGYN) whose passion is to educate and empower women with knowledge about their health, to tell us more about this stage in a woman's life and demystify the information that surrounds this topic.Special أم
