Perimenopause and menopause are significant phases in a woman’s life, marked by a range of symptoms that can affect physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Perimenopause, the transitional period leading up to menopause, often brings a host of signs such as loss of libido, unexpected weight gain, hot flashes, irregular heartbeat, and mood swings. Women may also experience sleep disturbances, irregular menstrual cycles, food cravings, and increased anxiety. As one transition into menopause, some symptoms like loss of libido and depression may persist, while others like joint inflammation, hair changes, and skin dryness become more prominent. Understanding these symptoms is crucial for women navigating these natural yet often challenging stages of life.
