Supporting Your Partner During Menopause


Supporting a loved one through menopause may seem like an impossible task. While your partner may think there is nothing they are able to do, your support and guidance may be what makes or breaks them.

We've outlined the best things you can do to help support your loved one through this changing time in their life.

Educate Yourself

Research and understanding is everything when it comes to menopause. Menopause and hormone imbalance brings on a whole set of symptoms that you may not know are hormone-related.

Here are some symptoms to look for.

  • Mood swings

  • Hot flashes

  • Night sweats

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Sleep problems

  • Weight loss or weight gain

  • Thinning of hair

  • Brain fog

As a partner, it can be difficult to not take it personally when your loved one lashes out during mood swings or has an unusually low libido.

The more educated you become about these symptoms the better you can handle when the signs start to show.

Anticipating Mood Swings

Most women experience mood swings while going through menopause. If your partner is experiencing this symptom of menopause it's vital to remember to take a step back and not take it personally. The emotional rollercoaster of menopause can be blamed on the declining levels of estrogen. This can result in your partner feeling like they are living in a constant state of PMS.

If you've found your happy-go-lucky partner suddenly experiencing:

  • Irritability

  • Memory loss

  • Feelings of sadness

  • Lack of motivation

  • Anxiety

  • Aggressiveness

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Fatigue

  • Mood changes

This could be largely in part of menopause. If your partner has not yet talked to their doctor about these symptoms let them know their physician may be able to help.



Reconnect with your partner

Instead of staying far away, bring a sense of normalcy to the relationship by planning a date night or time alone together. If your partner hasn't seen a doctor about hormone changes, it's best to bring that suggestion up when the both of you are in a good mental state, not during the heat of the moment. Laying down ground rules before these situations is a smart idea be sure to know

  • When to take the high road and step away from the fight

  • When your partner needs support

  • How to clearly but CALMLY discuss feelings during the heat of the moment.
