During my recent health check, my gynaecologist told me that I am going through perimenopause, the transition period before menopause sets in. I asked her what that meant and whether it required any treatment but since I did not have any symptoms accept for irregular periods, we decided to leave it alone for now.
My period started becoming irregular when I reached the age of 44. It had been very regular up till then, almost like clockwork and then suddenly it stopped for 4 months. I even thought I was pregnant at the time. I went for a check up then and was told that I was having hormonal imbalances. I told my husband that it explains my sudden bursts of anger. (Excuses. Excuses)
Anyway, since then, my period has been irregular, usually once in 4 months. I haven’t paid much attention to it. I guess I must record it more frequently to know the time lapse between each period.
So, how does it feel like to be going through perimenopause? Just the same, no difference. I feel as young as ever, in my heart and mind, though not necessarily in body.Pin It
