Perimenopause: Signs & Symptoms?
An urbanMama recently emailed:
I'd love to see a post asking readers about their experiences with perimenopause symptoms, advice, "must read" books, and so on. I'm 40 and noticing changes around my period (more cramps, bloat, mood swings, etc.) and wondering if it's perimenopause. Is weight gain common/inevitable? What about the mood swings? Is 40 too young? I think I'm just at the beginning of this process and realizing I know nothing! I need some advice, support, and reassurance, and it's not a topic I've seen discussed here before.
