Menopause Myth 4

If you’re under the age of 45, you’re TOO YOUNG to be menopausal.

OH, SO WRONG!!!

It might be unusual for a woman to go through menopause before the age of 45 but it’s definitely not impossible. There are women in their mid to late thirties who have been known to experience what is known as perimenopause. The symptoms include:

mood swings

depression

tension headaches

vaginal dryness

lack of sexual drive

inability to focus

night sweats

hot flashes

sleep problems

joint and muscle pain

irregular periods

There are actually dozens of symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause.

If you’re experiencing some of these symptoms, talk with your doctor. There is a test you can take to confirm whether or not you’re going through the change. And don’t accept medication as the end all answer for what ails you—especially if someone wants to give you anti-depressants.
