Tired, cranky, slower than you used to be?
Could these really be signs of menopause?
The truth is you probably look a lot younger than your ovaries.
Technically, menopause is just ONE day in our lives when we haven’t had a period for 12 months. But many of the most bothersome symptoms, from no sleep, no sex, or painful sex and weight gain, to feeling hot or sweating and brain fog can start well before our periods stop altogether. This hormonal roller coaster ride is known as perimenopause, which lasts from 1-10+ years and usually starts in our 40’s, but can begin as early as in our 30’s, or start abruptly if we’ve had surgery and our ovaries were removed.
