In phase two our hormone levels start to change dramatically and over time we stop having a regular menstrual cycle.

Our egg supply has shrunk, making pregnancy less likely but not impossible, beware!⠀

Progesterone, oestrogen and testosterone levels decline which lead to irregular cycles. You may skip two or more cycles, going more than sixty days without a period.

Your period may also increase or decrease in duration and your flow becomes heavier or lighter. ⠀Hormones at this time can fluctuate to extremes and this leads to many of the symptoms of the Perimenopause.

But many of the symptoms are your mind and body screaming at you to look at your lifestyle. NOW is the time to make the changes you need to improve your mental and physical health and lay the foundations for a healthy and happy life post menopause.
