                    [post_content] => Menopause may occur when a woman's ovaries stop producing eggs each month and the hormones required for fertility in a woman. Menopausal concerns in women with Down Syndrome comes with their own set of challenges. As a matter of fact, menopause in women with Down Syndrome may happen up to ten years earlier than in the general population.

Menopausal concerns in women with down syndrome do not come easy for parents either. Parents of a special-needs child often feel like their world has turned upside down during the difficult days of PMS & bleeding.

Each woman may experience menopause with varying intensity & duration.

Here are some things you can do ahead of time to prepare for the transition:
  • Teach them that this is a normal aspect of having a female body! Like mummy!
  • The more we prepare our children, ourselves for these changes & help them understand that they will be okay, the easier the transition for her!
So what’s a good way to teach your daughter about Menopause? Awareness & open communication about her experiences through her journey. This presentation will help you understand the menopausal concern in women with down syndrome. Also, will help in identifying ways to prepare for the same.

Sexual behaviors cannot be ‘corrected’ by medication. Sexual feelings are a natural part of the development process, and mere suppression cannot be the solution.  If a child is on drugs that subdue aggression, which in turn makes him/her sexually less aggressive, then this isn’t indicative of the drug having an effect on correcting the sexual behavior per se. The child is naturally calmer owing to the drug that directly impacts his moods and thus his sexual behavior is subdued indirectly. But medicating the child to lower his anxiety as a way to subdue his sexual behavior is a wrong approach. DISCLAIMER: Please note that this guide is for information purposes only.
