Perimenopause Symptoms That Indicate Your Gap Years

Are you a woman in your late 30’s or early 40’s who hasn’t yet reached menopause but feel as though you’re experiencing some of the signs of menopause like having hot flashes or suffering from low sex drive? It’s not an uncommon thing for women in that age bracket to notice a few things that seem to indicate early menopause but are actually signs of perimenopause, for example, when the ovaries begin to lower their estrogen production. Perimenopause symptoms resemble menopause in many ways, which can certainly confuse an already frustrating issue. 

Some of the most common perimenopause symptoms include: 

  • Tenderness in the breasts 
  • Hot flashes 
  • Severe PMS 
  • Lowered libido 
  • Irregular menstrual cycles 
  • Fatigue
    Discomfort during sexual activity 
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Stress incontinence 
  • Urgency to urinate 
  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • Mood swings 

Perimenopause treatments

Perimenopause treatment is often a matter of easing some of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Depending on your case and your own medical condition, you may find that taking a low-dose birth control can manage hot flashes. Fortunately, certain lifestyle changes to enhance your overall health and wellness can often provide natural relief. Once a diagnosis has been made, a physician will be able to advise you on your best options, which may include: 

  • Smoking cessation 
  • Exercise 
  • Regular sleep, which is effective in fighting fatigue
  • Decreasing alcohol consumption 
  • Maintaining a healthy weight 
  • Increasing your calcium intake, which may mean taking supplements for menopause
