Perimenopause and menopause are different — and they “feel” separate to your body as well. Here are 5 early symptoms of perimenopause:
1. “Instant” weight gain
2. Mood spikes and plunges
3. Acne and breakouts
4. Sex: take-it-or-leave-it
5. Irregular, inconsistent or heavy periods
Addressing the change in hormones is critical to alleviate or moderate symptoms. Adding natural supplements such as Black cohosh and American ginseng can help with symptoms. It’s best to discuss all types of therapeutic measures with a medical practitioner before starting any course of treatment.
