Change in Odor
During Menopause everything changes. Including body odor
As if hot flashes and night sweats were not bothersome enough in and of themselves, changes in body odor that occur as a result of these menopausal symptoms are one of the most awful side effects of menopause. Changes in body odor can lead to embarrassment, dejection, and anxiety in social situations.
Help! What can I do?
Fortunately, once the root cause of these changes in body odour is understood, it is possible to control them. In a blind study, both males and females rated the body odour of vegetarians as more attractive to that of meat eaters.
What is Body Odor?
Body odor is a byproduct of sweat, the body´s natural cooling system. Women possess two types of sweat glands.
- Located all over body
- Produce odorless sweat
- Sweat is released onto body´s surface
- Produce fatty sweat inside of the gland
- Located near hair follicles
- Sweat is pushed to the surface when women feel anxious, stressed, or exercise
In the case of sweat produced by the apocrine glands, which are located near hair follicles on the scalp, underarms, and groin area, the sweat contains fatty compounds. Bacteria feed on this sweat when it is secreted to the skin´s surface, and the resulting waste products, fatty acids, ammonia, and chemical reactions form a palpable odor which is unique for every woman.
Body Odor Changes and Menopause
Numerous typical menopausal symptoms can cause an increase in sweat production, which can lead to changes in body odor. Hot flashes and night sweats, in particular, have a strong effect, though psychological symptoms such as depression, panic attacks, or anxiety can lead to an increase in the incidence of sweating as well. More sweat leads to changes in body odor.
What Causes Changes in Body Odor?
For most mid aged women, hormone fluctuations are the primary cause for changes in body odour. The main player is estrogen, which is responsible for helping regulate the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature.
When estrogen levels drop, as is common during menopause, a false message is sent to the hypothalamus saying that the body is overheated. At this, the hypothalamus springs into action, causing an increase in sweat production and changes in body odour as a final result.
In addition, other factors may play a role in the changes in body odour a woman experiences. Diet, stress, certain diseases, and heredity are all potential causes as well. A wardrobe heavy on synthetic fabrics such as polyester or other non-breathable materials will also collect sweat and lead to increased body odours.
Changes in body odour don´t have to be permanent for women.
Treatment for Menopausal Body Odor:
As always, the first step is making a few lifestyle changes like increasing your consumption of protein, vitamins B and C, as well as iron.
Getting at least 20-30 minutes intense exercise per day can also help your overall health.
