Women in general tend to experience menopause at the age around 51 years. But, this number is an average and includes the women which enter into this stage earlier as well as those who experience it at a later age.
If some changes in your body worry you, then it might be right to suspect you might be entering into a premature menopause.
These are typical symptoms which might suggest the start of a premature menopause. If they worry you, then it might be a good idea to talk to your gynecologist.
Having an irregular period follows some women throughout their entire life. But if this is the case to those that haven’t had this occurrence, then it might be a clear indicator that something is not right, or at least something is changing. Typically a clear indicator is shortening the length of the period. It occurs sooner and then it won’t occur at all. If you suspect that your period might be shorter than usual, you should check if something is happening and consult your gynecologist so you can rule out the rest of the causers for this condition.
