Every woman follows a different path to menopause. When ovaries start making less hormones that regulate her menstrual cycle, she may experience mood swings, abnormal bleeding, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease, bone loss, low libido, depression & anxiety. Taking a proactive approach to menopause can result in a relatively smooth, positive transition.
Pay attention to your hormonal health at an early age. Treat every period as a progress report on your own hormonal balance. Do you have severe PMS, fibroids, or trouble getting pregnant or staying pregnant? If so, your hormones need tending. “You can resolve hormonal issues or sweep them under the rug.” If hormonal health isn’t on your radar screen, perimenopause will hit you over the head like a two-by-four.”
Consider the shape you’re in 2 days before your period. “If those 2 days are a piece of cake, you’re in good shape. If you view your period as a ‘curse’, you may be headed for trouble. By perimenopause, your body will scream to get your attention. It’s nothing short of a call to personal revolution.” As Ken Miles (famous race car driver) said, “If you’re going to push a piece of machinery to the limit, and expect it to hold together, you have to have some sense of where that limit is”.
