For some women, this can be a terribly confusing and trying time and can be reminiscent of the confusion and range of emotions that they felt when they were first going through puberty. Many women aren’t really sure when they begin going through menopause. There are so many signs and symptoms that menopause is coming, but there are only a few real signs that menopause is indeed about to rear its ugly head.
This is a list of the top 5 signs of menopause.
● Having an irregular menstrual cycle is another very common sign that you might be going through menopause. If you could once time your period precisely and now are experiencing very irregular or even missed periods, you might be in the early stages of menopause. This would be a good point to consult with your doctor that it is indeed the early stages of menopause (especially if you are on the younger side).
● A decreased interest in sex is a very common sign of menopause. Many women who are starting to go through menopause find themselves having little or even no interest in sex anymore. In addition to this, you might experience vaginal dryness during menopause which can make sexual activity painful, and increase your lack of wanting to have sex.
● Having a difficult time sleeping and experiencing night sweats is another common sign of menopause. If you suddenly get extremely hot in the night or are experiencing insomnia, this could mean that you are about to go through menopause. Many women know that menopause comes with hot flashes, but many less women are aware that this might come in the form of night sweats.
● Weight gain is a very common sign of menopause. Many women who are about to go through menopause begin to experience unexpected weight gain even if they’ve previously been thin. None of these signs alone are enough to say that you are indeed experiencing menopause, but these are the most common symptoms that menopausal women experience. If you are of menopausal age and experiencing these symptoms, it’s best to check with your doctor to see if you are indeed going through menopause.
