Common early menopause symptoms

There are many symptoms of early menopause, but in this article, these are the most common and serious ones to suffering from early menopause.

1. Abnormal periods

Your periods may come more frequently, every 24 days instead of every 28, or they may appear later than they used to. You may have a gentle period that endures just several days, and then the upcoming month get very strong bleeding. Your period may last a faster amount of time, or move on and on for what feels like an eternity. You could miss a month, then turn back to normal for several months, then skip two periods in a row…

2. Infertility Problems

Possibly one of the most unpleasant clues that you’re in premature menopause is the inability to conceive. You may still be having your period, you may still assume everything is perfectly usual — but you just can’t get pregnant. Or you may be noticing irregular periods and assume there’s something else wrong with you and never think it’s menopause.

3. Bladder Handle Troubles

This symptom of menopause is related to vaginal dryness and atrophy — and, honestly, it sounds much worse than it is. You’re not going to suddenly have to start wearing Depends. You may, however, recognize that you have to urinate more often or with more emergency, or you may have urinary stress incontinence, little leaks when you exert yourself. Again, this is a function of lower-than-normal estrogen levels. Your bladder and urethra are created from the same cells as your vagina when you’re a developing embryo. So, just like your vagina loses muscular tone and elasticity when estrogen production lags, your lower urinary tract does as well. The lining of your urethra becomes thinner, and the around muscles change into weaker. As a result, when you place stress on your bladder — through coughing, sneezing, laughing, or strenuous exercising, you many relieve a tiny bit of urine. And it is usually only a tiny amount, so there’s no need to imagine a real disaster.

4. Sleeping disorders/Upset Sleep

If you’re waking up a lot at night, tossing and turning, and generally suffering with insomnia, it might be connected with menopause. When you begin going through menopause, you may find that your sleep is less and less restful — when you sleep at all. In the past, doctors believed that interrupted sleep was a consequence of night sweats, but recent studies indicate that you can also have problems with sleep that aren’t connected to hot flashes. Commonly, the frequency of insomnia doubles from the amount you may have had before you entered premature menopause. And research also shows that females begin to get restless sleep as many as five to seven years before entering menopause. Again, however, the problem is recognizing that the insomnia you’re suffering from has its roots in changes in your hormone levels.
