When this happens, you start experiencing the classic symptoms of menopause such as Hot Flushes, Night Sweats, Vaginal Dryness, Irritability, Mood Swings, Headaches, Low energy and Low libido.
In some women it starts in their mid 30’s. Other’s go through menopause in their late 40’s or even 50’s. Some women may experience these symptoms for months or for years afterwards, generally menopause would last an average of 2 to 5 years. Menopause is a normal part of life just like puberty it is not a disease.
Menopause can be officially declared when there has been a absence of menstruation for more than 12 months. Menopause is generally preceded by peri-menopause which is a transitional stage with some of the symptoms of menopause and is usually accompanied by irregular periods.
There are however, many signs that lead up to menopause and many of these signs or symptoms will extend beyond the actual start of Menopause. These signs are related to the hormonal changes a woman’s body is experiencing and they effect each woman in different ways.
