You're in your 40s, you wake up in a sweat at night, and your periods are erratic and often accompanied by heavy bleeding: Chances are, you're going through perimenopause. Many women experience an array of symptoms as their hormones shift during the months or years leading up to menopause — that is, the natural end of menstruation.
Let us discuss in detail about early menopause symptoms so that you don’t find the happenings to be ‘unusual’ and easily cope up with the condition.
Perimenopause is a natural phase in a woman’s life that transitions her from her reproductive years to life after pregnancy and childbirth. It begins when your ovaries start to release fewer egg cells and to secrete fluctuating amounts of hormones, making periods irregular. It ends when your ovaries stop releasing eggs and secreting hormones at menopause. It usually begins when a woman is in her 40s; the average age is 47. The transition into menopause lasts an average of four years but can last eight to 10 years for some women and just a few short months for others. Menopause, diagnosed after no vaginal bleeding has occurred for 12 months, marks the end of perimenopause.
Some women begin perimenopause in their 30s also or even younger because of premature ovarian loss. The cause of this condition is unknown (idiopathic) for most women, but for others it may be caused by an autoimmune disorder, chromosomal abnormality, or chemotherapy or pelvic radiation for cancer. Because the length of perimenopause varies, some women experience symptoms longer than others.
Now when you know the early menopause symptoms, we expect you to accept this life change and recognize the symptoms as early as possible and contact a doctor as and when required. You really don’t need to fight the battle all alone, doctors can help you better deal with the situation. You can also take help of homeopathy in treating your premenopausal complaints.
