Menopause, Perimenopause, Postmenopausal—which one am I?
Here are the facts.
The menopause is defined as the moment when your menstrual cycle ends forever. In other words, once you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period.
The perimenopause is the period before the menopause. It’s at this time menopausal symptoms appear.
And finally, postmenopausal is used to define the time after the menopause. For many women, this signals an easing of menopausal symptoms.
So, how can you tell if you’re perimenopausal?
- Irregular or sporadic periods.
- Longer or more painful periods.
- Hot flushes and night sweats.
- Mood swings. You may feel angry, tearful, or anxious.
- Brain fog and a lack of concentration.
- Memory loss.
- Loss of libido and vaginal dryness.
You may experience all or only a few of these symptoms, and they might switch and change over time.
Remember each woman is different.
Most importantly, life doesn’t need to stop.
