Early Menopause or Hormonal Imbalance?
Night sweats, bad moods, poor sleep, weight gain - for women of a certain age symptoms like these are often written off as the inevitable signs of early menopause - or impending menopause - known as perimenopause. But many women may be putting up with discomfort when they don't have to.
Hormonal imbalances unrelated to menopause can mimic many of the same symptoms as menopause. Hormones regulate most major bodily processes, so when they get off balance it can cause a wide range of symptoms throughout the body.
