Menopause checklist helps decisions about treatment

How do you know you’re in your perimenopausal years?  

That’s the question many mid-life women ask themselves and the answer may not be clear right away. Perimenopause is the 10 to 15 years before you reach menopause, which occurs when your menstrual periods have been absent for at least 12 months.

Common first signs of perimenopause include irritability, mood swings, irregular or heavy periods, hot flashes and vaginal dryness, although it’s different for every woman.

Are your perimenopause signs vague or specific, mild or severe? Are they affecting your body, your mind or your emotions? What treatment options do you intend to choose – natural methods or hormone therapy? Is it time to look for natural remedies, or find outside help from a qualified practitioner?

You may have many menopause signs, or only a few. Unusual-for-you symptoms that you think are unrelated to menopause such as body aches, irritability, insomnia, forgetfulness, may in fact, be perimenopause signs. Conversely, some of what you think may be connected to menopause, may have nothing to do with it and deserve a discussion with your trusted health practitioner.

A menopause checklist is a useful tool that’ll give you a snapshot of your current menopause status. You can use it to help you analyse your quality of life and decide if you’ll take action or do nothing about what you’re experiencing. If you have several signs or symptoms, or the ones you have are severe or bothersome, it’s a good idea to take action now before they worsen.

If you choose to do nothing now, you may want to re-do a menopause checklist every six months to a year to see the ‘big picture’ of how perimenopause is affecting your quality of life.

      Only you can decide if you’re ready for help with your menopause issues. If your menopause challenges are not improving, or getting worse, I heartily recommend that you get help sooner than later. Would you agree that it’s much easier to solve a little problem instead of an emergency?
