    Hello,

    While we cannot give medical advice or diagnosis, you might want to take a look at this information on perimenopause . If you have any of the symptoms listed, this could be what you are experiencing. Perimenopause usually begins in a woman's 40s and ends the first year after menopause (when you have gone 12 months without a period). You might make an appointment to see your doctor or gynecologist to speak about what you are experiencing and confirm what is going on.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
