9 Symptoms Which Could Mean You Are In Pre Menopause

Aug 26, 2008
One of the best ways to handle menopause is to get educated about what it is and how it can affect you when it finally arrives in your life.

Pre menopause symptoms are natures way of easing you into the full version and many women are surprised to learn that these can actually start in their thirties.

Just be aware, they serve a strong purpose in conditioning you to the more severe symptoms you may experience during full menopause. Just think, to go from normal to the full version in one fell swoop could be just the ticket you need to be sent to a sanitarium. So don't be alarmed if you experience these symptoms early.

Getting Educated

Education is a great way to mentally prepare for symptoms. There seems to be a common theory that pre menopause symptoms signifies old age and yes, they do in a way but to simply ignore any mention of them because of this could do you more harm than good.

Harm can come from not knowing what to do when it finally arrives. Too many women leave it to the last minute or even worse, when they are experiencing the big "M" and this is a strong reason why those that do just don't cope well.

A study was conducted several years ago among women who took the time to educate themselves and those that didn't and it was no surprise the findings revealed the former group handled the natural change of life much better.

In fact, experts suggest embracing menopause as a new beginning in women's lives is great for creating a good mental attitude.

So what are some of the symptoms you should look out for. We've compiled a short list and remember two things, there are many more symptoms with some leading to others. Also, some of the symptoms mentioned below may not even have anything to do with menopause.

They could in actual fact be related to other conditions and this is one of the reasons it's important to check with your doctor. If it is related to another condition then alternative treatment will be required.

Okay, here is a short list of pre menopause symptoms which could affect you well before you graduate to the full version:

1. Hot flashes are probably the most common symptom and can invariably create other issues.

2. Irregular periods are a definite sign you could be starting your change of life but don't simply assume it is because it may be also related to other conditions. Always check with your doctor.

3. Mood swings are common and can result from hot flashes which can lead to lack of sleep which then leads to feeling irritable.

4. Weight gain can be related but like irregular periods, this can also be related to other issues.

6. Vaginal dryness can be a problem and is a symptom which can lead to a low libido and thus, lack of sex drive because of the pain associated with it. This can then create issues with your partner so watch this one.

7. Skin irritations and dry skin

8. Night sweats

9. Depressive mood
