There are some things in our lives that are inevitable for all of us, well the female part of the population, at least. As you may have guessed, we have menopause in mind. Even though there is no set date or age when it is going to hit you, there are some things you are definitely bound to know.
The thing is, menopause doesn’t just come and stay, there is a perimenopause period which comes in 4 or 5 years prior to your menopause. Of course, most of us are not ready for those changes that are going to happen to our bodies during that time, which is why we decided to share them with you so that there is no chance you will mistake your perimenopause period for something else.
#1 Hot flashes
Hot flashes happen to almost all women when they are about to hit menopause, but the intensity is different. If you get very hot suddenly, and then just as suddenly, it goes away – that is it!
#2 Mood swings
Women who are in their premenopausal stage are more likely to get moody. What is more, some women get very depressed, even though they have never experienced anything like that. Get ready and do not be scared, it is going to pass.
Get ready to start missing your periods and do not be afraid of getting pregnant, since the chances are low. As you hit menopause, your periods will stop completely.
#4 Libido changes
Your libido level will go down for a while, but there is nothing to worry about.
#5 Vaginal dryness
This may be the worst issue, since it may influence the quality of your intercourse, which may become too painful due to this reason. That is why you should keep a good lubricant on hand.
#6 Cognitive problems
If you experience some memory loss and face difficulties in memorizing things – that is it, you are in your premenopausal stage. Worry not, it will go away once you hit menopause.
