During perimenopause, or before menopause, apart from mood changes such as anxiety, the menopause blues and mood swings, we may also experience changes in our PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
During perimenopause, I thought my hormones would decline in a nice, neat uniform fashion, getting less and less each month, until my periods stopped. I was wrong.
During perimenopause does our PMS declined in a nice neat regular fashion?
Just as estrogen may not decline in a nice, neat, uniform fashion, neither may our PMS. In Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS): Does PMS Change With Age? the Office on Women’s Health, United States Department of Health and Human Services, Womenshealth.gov explain:
This is especially true for women whose moods are sensitive to changing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. In the years leading up to menopause, your hormone levels also go up and down in an unpredictable way as your body slowly transitions to menopause. You may get the same mood changes, or they may get worse.
PMS stops after menopause when you no longer get a period”.
