So don't panic. The majority of these 34 menopause symptoms will probably never happen to you. And those that do happen can usually be relieved naturally.
After all, menopause is not a disease. It's a natural crossroad that calls for natural steps in the right direction. This a good time to start taking better care of yourself. And if you do, you'll find the second half of your life can be better than ever.
Knowledge is power.
If you experience any of these 34 symptoms, you'll know it's just part of the "change of life" when reproductive hormones start decreasing. Instead of wasting time worrying, you can get busy doing something about it.
For example, if your gums start bleeding, you can brush and floss more often. (Or, if it's still happening, go to the dentist.) But, you'll know it's perfectly natural.
Although the majority of women have some discomfort, early menopause symptoms are generally only strong for a few months to a few years. Especially if you're healthy.
The "change of life" can be a positive change.
By midlife most of us have learned a thing or two. Now it's up to you to put that good knowledge to work and take advantage of the second half of your life.
There's only one menopause symptom that you're sure to have – that's the end of your menstrual cycle. It can happen abruptly, but it's usually gradual.
Your periods will become heavier or lighter, longer or shorter, further apart or closer together. There's no average pattern. You'll eventually start skipping periods until they stop entirely. Hopefully this will mean more freedom for you.
You may also have hot flashes – sudden warm flushes that turn into a cold clammy feeling. These might also include night sweats, which can keep you up at night.
