The transition into menopause, or perimenopause, often begins when a woman enters her 40s. In many cases, women may not even associate these changes with menopause because they are still menstruating fairly regularly. If you are suffering from swollen gums menopause, you may be entering or are already in the midst of menopause.
Gums changes are among the first signs of menopause. Hormonal changes like those of puberty and pregnancy can make gums more sensitive to oral bacteria. Your gums may become inflamed, sensitive or puffy, and this can increase your risk of developing more serious periodontal disease, which has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis. Other symptoms usually follow and bring hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, insomnia, aching joints and breast tenderness.
Each symptom is a result of fluctuating hormones. Your body is changing, and the hormones can fluctuate quite dramatically before settling into their new lower level. While menopause can be upsetting for women, it can also be a positive time of change. Taking control of your symptoms and making healthy lifestyle choices can reduce the negative effects of menopause on your life.
