Way More Prepared

How prepared were you to get a period?

Most of us grew up in an era before anyone thought it was their responsibility to fill us in on things like periods and the “birds and the bees.” If you had the type of Mom who got you a little booklet and took the time to go through it with you – count yourself as one of the lucky ones. More often we saw our friends whispering in the halls which made us curious.  When we inquired what was happening, our eyes grew wide as they filled us in on what they had heard from their older sister.

The next stress became our anxiety about when this weird thing was going to happen to us. If knowledge is power…we were pretty powerless.

That doesn’t have to be the case when it comes to you and your menopausal journey. In fact there are signs that you can be looking for to make yourself more ready for this next phase of your life.

  • The typical age for menopause in the U.S. is 51. Some women will start sooner…some later, but that’s an average. (Remember menopause is defined as the cessation of a period for one full year.)
  • New research seems to indicate that the level of a substance called anti-Mullerian hormone, or AMH, may help doctors determine years ahead of time approximately when a woman will have her final menstrual period. Talk to your doctor about this if you would find this helpful.
  • Symptoms of menopause typically begin anytime between age 45 and 47, called perimenopause. Signs can include, but are not limited to irregular periods, hot flashes, night sweats, occasional sleeplessness and a change in moods. This phase can last 3-5 years, but can last up to 10 years.

The good news is you don’t have to rely on gum-smacking girlfriends with older sisters to arm yourself with the information you need when it comes to menopause.

You do have a non-hormonal, safe and effective way to handle perimenopause and menopause with Remifemin and Remifemin Good Night.
