Our office got a call from an old customer. The 45-year-old had been experiencing increased anxiety, a hard time sleeping, mood swings and irregular periods. She also found herself quickly losing her temper with her family. Confused, she turned to asked her older friends, who suggested she might be in perimenopause.

Turns out, her friends were right. Perimenopause is your body’s natural progression to its next lifecycle called menopause. It is not easy to pinpoint because the signs are subtle. As you age, your ovaries slow down estrogen and progesterone production you may experience symptoms that look an awful lot like PMS things that you endure every month. This makes this transition that much more difficult to detect. Health care professional finds it hard to separate a severe case of PMS and perimenopause. While every woman experiences this transition stage differently, below are some signs you may be entering into perimenopause:

  • Hot flashes
  • Sudden irregular periods, including a change in menstrual flow and duration
  • Increase in mood swings
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Increased bloating
  • Forgetfulness
  • Fatigue
  •  Increase in headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
