Hi Anon,


Thank you for sharing your question regarding menopause with the EmpowHER community!

On average, menopause happens naturally with age, typically around the age of 51 or so.  But for some women it can happen before 40 which is called premature menopause or perimenopause.

Having an irregular menstrual cycle can be one of the signs or perimenopause, but not the only one. Typically there are other symptoms like hot flashes.

Other symptoms that can happen during this time include:

  • Mood swings
  • Lower sex drive
  • Hot flashes
  • Sweating
  • Racing heart
  • Headaches
  • Vaginal dryness and soreness
  • Painful sex
  • Trouble sleeping

Are you experiencing any of the above symptoms in addition to your menstrual cycle being irregular?

How long have you experienced this irregularity?

Here are some helpful resources to review:

Make note of the changes you are experiencing and be sure to discuss with you doctor at your next schedule exam.  

I hope this helps!

Be well,
