Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of menopause?
I’m too young to be starting menopause, but I have symptoms. Is this normal?
Women in a wide range of ages often ask me whether it’s normal to be experiencing symptoms of menopause even though they believe they’re too young to be starting it. The fact is that menopause symptoms can sneak up on you when you’re younger. They can actually start up to 10 years before menopause itself occurs! When you’re in your 30’s and 40’s, it’s possible for those symptoms to be misdiagnosed as thyroid disease or other disorders, including thyroid disease, depression, anxiety or other signs of hormonal imbalance. However, this may not be the case and may, in fact, be early menopause. You might feel great for two weeks then the next two weeks you’re weepy and irritable. If you are still experiencing a normal menstrual cycle, quite often all you need to do is ensure that your progesterone levels are adequate, which can prevent many of the unpleasant symptoms some women experience.
