What is it?
It is a complex of symptoms that start before menstruation become irregular. During premenopause the woman remains fertile and can get pregnant, but the level of estrogen gradually decreases.
Predmenopause ends a year after I stopped menstruating. It is usually called the climax, even though it is correct — the transition to menopause.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of menopause may appear during premenopause, and after it. Here they are:
- hot flashes and night sweats,
- lack of energy,
- mental symptoms (low mood, anxiety),
- decreased libido,
- dryness of the vagina, discomfort during sex,
- dry skin and hair.
Most women begin to experience these symptoms after the age of 40, and even closer to 50. But for some it starts early: 5% of women right after 40, 1% – to 40, and every thousandth “lucky” to 30 years. Learn about it in advance and prevent — it’s impossible!
Upset, however, also not necessary, because the unpleasant symptoms of premenopause easily corrected.
