Early Signs of Menopause

Am I crazy or could this be hormonal? Have these thoughts entered your mind?

Menopause is a natural part of any woman's life. The symptoms associated with the hormonal changes that take place during this time can be uncomfortable and unpleasant. Every woman's experience is different and symptoms can feel severe and be misdiagnosed. It can feel frustrating and isolating. The first signs of perimenopause are typically mood swings and irregular periods but it's definitely possible to experience one and not the other.

Perimenopause is the time leading up to menopause when symptoms begin to appear. The decline in estrogen which triggers progesterone decline is responsible for triggering these symptoms. Conventional medicine will offer birth control pills and/or anti depressants. For some women this will provide relief but for many others it will only cause and intensify more physical and emotional symptoms.

If you are a woman in her 30's or 40's listen up!

Average ages of menopause also vary across race:

  • Caucasian: 50-52

  • Latin American: 47-49

  • African American: 53-55

The average time of perimenopause is 1 to 3 years.

Many women experience early menopause where symptoms of perimenopause can begin and last 10 to 15 years before she goes through menopause and no longer has a menstrual cycle!

This is NOT the case for every woman! I started having symptoms

of perimenopause in my late 30's and had my last period at 45 years old. I was dismissed by my medical team as I tried to navigate my severe perimenopause symptoms alone. I wasted tons of time, money and tears during those years. I made a vow to dedicate my work to helping other women through what can feel like a traumatic time in her life.
