    Night sweats
    Insomnia – maybe a result of night sweats
    Vaginal dryness – this may cause pain during intercourse

  • And if you are too young for menopause, then get your thyroid checked.

  • MommaB30's list is pretty spot on.. When I first started peri-menopause (which is the 10-15 years before actual menopause happens. Actual menopause is when you have gone for 1 full year without a period. That usually happens in a woman's 50's) my Doc (who is a specialist in this area) gave me a list of over 30 symptoms that come along with peri-menopause. I would also like to add, a woman can start peri-menopause earlier than 40. A woman's : diet, exercise level, overall health level, drinking during her lifetime, smoking during her lifetime, using drugs during her lifetime and a few other things can actually contribute to early perimenopause in some women.

    I started peri-menopause when I was 40. I'm now 49 so I am in the thick of it right now.. lol I must say though, I have had an increase in sex drive not a decrease over the past few years. I keep my 50 year old husband on his toes in that area lol...

  • I'm only 22 ... so I am hoping that there is something else causing these wacky symptoms

  • If you are only 22.. Make an appointment with your doc and get checked out. Have them check your hormone levels and thyroid levels.  Early peri-menopause is usually mid to late 30's not early 20's.. So go in for a full work up and physical when it's possible for you to do so.
