Early Menopause Signs Symptoms



Early menopause signs symptoms are a very normal stage of living- well, to a woman at least. Physiological changes are what occur when you talk about the signs and symptoms of menopause. It happens to every woman and it’s not the same with every woman, but it generally happens when she reaches the age of 45 and above.

Menopause is like, when a girl first starts her period as she has now “become a woman” and when a woman experiences menopause it is “the big change”, so it is like experiencing that feeling all over again, only this time you are much older!

The early menopause signs symptoms are often referred to as being clues to the start of the signs of menopause at an early stage. Menopause is most common when it occurs when a woman is between the ages of 45 – 50, but when it happens earlier than that it is considered as an early menopause situation.

The most common early menopause signs symptoms include:

  • Decrease in vaginal lubrication

  • Water preservation

  • Modifications of usual sleeping patterns

  • Yeast infections

  • Cramps, pains and aches

  • Constant exhaustion

  • Chronic headaches

  • Unusual changes in menstrual cycle

  • Alterations in blood sugar level

  • Night sweats

  • Decrease of interest in current love life

  • Alterations in body hair growth

  • Sudden depression

  • Hot flushes

  • Unexplained irritability

  • Unexplained mood swings

These are just a few of the early menopause signs symptoms, and given below are details of the top six symptoms

Unusual Changes in Menstrual Cycle

A woman’s monthly cycle is determined by her ovaries. The hormones allow all women to create an egg during her ovulation time. It is the imbalance of hormones that her body creates during menopause which leads to the monthly cycles becoming late or even early. In a case of an unhealthy diet or low nutrition, the monthly cycle can start early.

Changes in PMS and Cramps

PMS can occur before menopause does and it can happen to any women. However, during menopause it can intensify in regularity or even strength. One of the main kinds of hormonal imbalance is PMS. One’s hormonal balance gets weak by menopause as the PMS gets stronger. The women who suffer while still young into their lives, from PMS and major period cramps before they are near menopause, are most likely to go through more telling results when they enter the stages of menopause.

Depression and Mood Swings

Many people (especially boyfriends and husbands) tell their partner that there is no such thing as mood swings and that it is all in the mind. This is not true as there are scientific findings that state that a woman’s hormones do have an effect on their moods. There is not just one feeling you will experience when your mood swings kick in. Many women have different feelings- some will be relaxed, lazy and passive, while others feel more lively, energetic and active.

Alterations in Body Hair Growth

Testosterone and estrogen are balanced in our bodies. But unfortunately our testosterone is what determines the growth of one’s body hair. During menopause, it is common for the levels of estrogen to decrease, which can cause the testosterone to “go wild” and either gives you unwanted hair where you have never had before or it could cause hair loss.

Modifications of Usual Sleeping Patterns

The normal reason for someone loosing sleep is having night sweats, which often come accompanied by hot flushes. Additionally, the depression and the mood swings that come with hormonal imbalance result in lack of restful sleep, all night.

Water Preservation

The metabolism of one’s body is greatly influenced by their hormones. The inequity of menopause often manifests as a radical decreasing of the indicators that are in charge of controlling the rate at which ones body’s cells retain water and get rid of excess fat that one may have. This often results in water preservation as well as weight gain.

Early menopause signs symptoms can differ from woman to woman, but if you find yourself dealing with these symptoms, it is important that you seek help. It is most likely, that you have nothing to worry about, but it is better be safe than sorry!
