Perimenopause Symptoms in Tampa, Carrollwood, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Brandon & Neighboring Regions
During perimenopause, you will begin to experience symptoms of menopause such as irregular periods, hot flashes, mood swings, and more. However, perimenopause and perimenopause symptoms can occur long before the actual onset of menopause, with many women experiencing perimenopause symptoms nearly 10 years before the beginning stages of menopause.
So what’s the difference between perimenopause and menopause?
Perimenopause: Perimenopause is diagnosed when there is a significant drop in estrogen or drastic fluctuations in estrogen throughout each monthly menstruation cycle. During this time, women are still releasing eggs and have the capacity to get pregnant.
Menopause: Menopause occurs once the estrogen levels decline so dramatically as to prohibit the release of eggs. It brings with it more exaggerated menopause symptoms and causes cessation of menstruation and more. Menopause typically begins in a woman’s mid-40’s, but additional factors such as family history, smoking, cancer and other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can cause early onset menopause.
