Menopause and Irregular Periods
Irregular periods are often one of the first signs of perimenopause, or the transition between a woman’s reproductive years and menopause. As her ovaries begin to produce less estrogen, menstrual cycles can become irregular. Over time, her ovaries will gradually stop releasing eggs, and her cycles will eventually stop altogether. Irregular periods can begin when a woman is in her 30s or even earlier, but they are most common once a woman reaches her 40s.
Because irregular periods can have other causes, you may wish to consult with a health care practitioner under some circumstances. If your periods are heavy, last longer than usual, are accompanied by blood clots or are occurring closer together, your doctor can perform tests to determine the cause of the irregularity. If you are experiencing spotting between your periods, you may also need to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.
In spite of your irregular periods, you may still be able to become pregnant. If you are not trying to conceive, you will need to continue taking precautions or using contraceptives until your periods have stopped.
Menopause symptoms can often be relieved with healthy lifestyle choices. If you smoke, cut back or quit. Maintain a regular exercise routine, get more sleep, work on achieving a healthier weight, take Advance Multivitamin, eat a healthy diet and stay well hydrated.
