When your period starts to do wonky things, or you start waking up drenched with sweat in the night, wondering if you were trying to run a marathon in your sleep, then maybe you’re also wondering if you’re starting to go through menopause. This is such an important thing to ask NOW and figure out, because if you’re going through this season that mean’s it’s not over. And if it’s not over that means you still have time to improve your journey.
Do any of these fit you?
- I am between the ages of 35 and 50 years old-ish.
- My periods are different, and they’re coming at various times.
- I get really warm and sweaty sometimes, and I wonder if I’m having hot flashes.
- My moods are really up and down, and I’m angry a lot.
- I’m having trouble sleeping.
- My libido is high one day and low the next… or gone completely.
- I need more lubrication, and intimacy feels different, uncomfortable, or even painful.
- My menstrual cramps are worse.
- I workout the same amount, but my body isn’t responding the same.
- My weight has gone up unexplainably.
- I eat the same food, but my scale acts like I’m eating more than normal.
- My cravings for everything (EVERYTHING) have changed.
- I feel like I digest food differently, and I get constipated and/or bloated more easily.
- My energy levels feel lower than normal.
- I wake up all sweaty in the night sometimes.
- My bladder control has worsened even though I do kegels and exercise.
- I want to exercise more, but I have zero motivation, and it stresses me out.
- My skin feels thinner like crepe paper, and I notice new wrinkles all the time.
- I get injured more easily and find bruises I don’t remember getting.
- My hair is thinner, and I feel like I’m losing it all the time.
Congratulations, you’re (very likely) perimenopausal!
If more than 3 or 4 of the things on that list resonated with you, and you’re a female between the ages of 35 and 50 years old AND you still have your period – regularly or even occasionally – then welcome to “The Change.”
Maybe you thought menopause would start overnight. Perhaps you were told that your period would quit one day, and then the night sweats and hot flashes would kick in, and your hair would turn grey. Maybe you figured that if you’re still having kids, you’re exempt for now. Yeah, it doesn’t actually work that way, but you can be super grateful that gearing up (or is it down?) to menopause is a drawn out process that we can manage with solid, simple strategies that improve all our symptoms and systems while also raising our quality of life!
