There are over 24 recognised physical and emotional symptoms of perimenopause. They often begin in the early forties when oestrogen levels start to drop. These symptoms can last an average of 4 years, until the menopause.
Hormone imbalance or insufficiency may cause a wide range of symptoms. They often affect a woman’s health in many ways. Some of the first signs of hormone fluctuations on the run up to menopause are mood swings and irregular periods.
The average age for the menopause in the UK is 51 yrs. A woman is said to have been through the menopause when she has had no periods for 12 months.
Even though it is an entirely natural process around 25% of women will suffer from debilitating symptoms during the perimenopausal years. For some women these symptoms can even last as long as 10 years.
Over 150 symptoms are also associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Women can experience these symptoms in the days or even weeks before their period.
Premenstrual syndrome is linked to changes in hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. The exact cause may vary according to the individual.
