Is Menstruation A Little Sign Of Early Menopause?
Good evening, I’m a housewife, 40 years old. Since the age of 38 I have experienced changes in my menstruation. My mens who are usually 4-5 days still have a lot of 2-3hrs but just cleared up to 6hrs … can I potentially have early menopause … and whether I can still be pregnant … he said the pill would be able to prevent early menopause right or not. .. what is the example of the pill you are .. thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Normal menstruation can occur every 21-35 days and the duration can range from 2-7 days. Therefore shortening of the menstrual cycle from 4-5 days to 2-3 days is not a disorder and does not always indicate menopause. Before menopause, a woman will enter premenopause. Some signs of a woman entering premenopause include:
menstruation which becomes irregular
burning sensation on the face and chest
decreased sexual appetite
A woman will not be said to experience menopause until she has completely stopped menstruating for 12 months and as long as menopause has not occurred (still in perimenopause), you can still get pregnant.
Birth control pills will not be able to change the time when menopause occurs in a woman so it is not indicated to be taken to delay menopause.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
