Possible Symptoms Associated with various Stages of Menopause
Just to calm your fears..... Peri-menopause
(before menopause) is when you start noticing something is a little
"off", (usually with your periods) or maybe it seems like you're more irritable
than usual. Everyone has different symptoms at different times (and at
different ages) so it's really hard to determine exactly when you started
into the peri-menopause phase, but when you can start putting 2 or 3 or
more of these symptoms together and they're hanging around for more than
a month, it's pretty safe to assume that you are starting the process of
change that every woman will go through in her lifetime. This is why it's
a great idea to make notes on a calendar of anything that seems out of
the norm for you.

NOTE FROM DEE: Don't be surprised if what works perfectly for awhile seems to not be as effective down the road. The entire journey is one of ups and downs and curves......the best thing you can do is become educated about what is going on with your body and then be prepared to make adjustments when you realize that your hormonal make-up is shifting once again. It sounds like a pain in the butt, but the tradeoff is that you become more in control of what your body requires and more confident because you're not fearful.
