A quick Internet search for peri and menopause symptoms returned hundreds of results.
Though i believe i am experiencing the whole gamut of them, not all these symptoms are unpleasant and unwelcome.
Which symptoms bother you the most? And which ones don't? I would like to know.
As far as i am concerned, joint stiffness, mood swings, irregular periods, fatigue and a sense of doom and gloom are the most troublesome.
What i don't mind is a slight weight gain (i have always been very thin), a yoyo sex drive (i like the ups!), insomnia (i get things done at night when my flat is quiet and then sleep in until i am sufficiently rested) hot flashes - i usually feel cold when the thermometer falls below 25 C so i welcome any opportunity to break a sweat and get rid of some toxins through my skin.
