Menopause is possibly one of the biggest transitions a woman can ever have in her life. It’s when all kinds of things happen to our body, signaling the beginning and the end of some things. Menopause should not be considered as a problem. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. What makes it scary are hearing stories about it that are not good. But once you get to know things about menopause, all the things you’ve heard before won’t seem that bad anymore. The first thing that you need to know about is the signs of menopause. Before we get to that though, you need to know a little something about perimenopause or pre menopause first.

Perimenopause is the first stage of menopause. The second stage is the menopause and the third one is post-menopause. The three stages are different from each other. The first stage is basically experienced by women in their early 40’s. This is when their hormones usually go haywire, and their whole body starts to feel a little weird. What are these weird feelings and will you know if you are going through perimenopause?

The symptoms of perimenopause are Hot flashes/Cold Flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, mood swings, fatigue, hair loss, increased facial hair, sleep disorders, disorientation, mental confusion, memory lapses, dizziness, light headedness and episodes of loss balance.

These are just a few symptoms of menopause you should keep an eye out for. The symptoms of menopause generally last’s throughout the whole menopause transition (until their mid 50’s), but there are also cases where a woman experiences these symptoms their whole lives. There can be no cure for this disorder, but the best thing to when you start to see these symptoms on your self is to call a doctor to help you out. There are a lot of ways to have menopause relief and it’s best to let the experts tell you what to do when you go through menopause.
