Estrogen affects the different physical and emotional development of a female including her sexual desire and reproductive growth.

Menopause is the important phase of a woman’s life that is a result of the decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone hormones in the body. This phase witnesses a number of menopausal symptoms during this phase. Most of these symptoms result from the drop in the level of estrogen in the body.

There are many pieces of writings that provide a good overview of menopause symptoms here on the Internet; however, a few discuss the effect of estrogen on the female body following menopause.

Estrogen shapes the body of a female and helps it by providing it with the right form required for pregnancy. It also helps in forming the right skeletal structure, thus required to provide strength and form to protect the heart and blood vessels of the body.

Staying Healthy for the Family

Hubby and I always make sure that we stay healthy for our family, for the little boys that is. Recently, hubby noticed weight gain on his side and the activities, the food trips, and the outings we had a couple of weeks ago, all contributed to the slight increase in his weight. So as a result, he went back to walking, controlling his food intake and dieting as well. He now skips eating rice for breakfast, but instead goes for a bowl of oatmeal. Significantly, his diet showed improvements, he has lost a few pounds already and his tummy is no longer that big anymore.

As for me, since I work online and has to finish tasks the soonest possible time, I usually stay up late, which I know is not good for the health. I also stay seated for prolonged periods of time, which also means a red flag for the health. I am fully aware of the risks and dangers of such inactivity, so I make sure that I get to stand up, take breaks, play with Baby Job and Kuya Bogs, chase after them, do chores and do afternoon walks with hubby (and the kids). I don’t want to accumulate cellulite in my thighs and legs so as much as possible, I don’t remain inactive all day long. I also follow Amberen deals on Twitter to keep me updated on how to lose weight and be ready for menopausal symptoms in the near future.

Staying healthy for the kids is one of our priorities, our kids are still young and they still have a long way to go, while we, their parents are already middle-aged individuals, so we try as much as we can to live a healthy lifestyle.
