Woman approaching menopause know a hot flash when she feels one

15 May 2017 Blogroll

Perimenopause is referred to as the final cessation of your menstrual cycle and the time in which you will start to see and feel the signs and symptoms of menopause—including weight gain, hot flashes, and mood swings. Perimenopause differs for every woman, but on average it takes about a year to complete (unless you have a full hysterectomy), between the ages of 45 to 55, after which time you are post-menopausal.

1. Missed Periods

2. Hot Flashes

Just about any woman approaching menopause knows a hot flash when she feels one. That sudden overwhelming blast of heat that extends from your forehead to your toes and leaves you soaking with sweat occurs due to hormones mixing up your body’s temperature regulation (the hypothalamus). You can experience hot flashes all over your body or in just one area, but the extreme temperature change in your body is uncomfortable no matter where you feel it.

3. Weight Gain

4. Sleep Deprivation

5. Vaginal Dryness

6. Mood Swings

7. Sore Breasts
