Perimenopause Symptoms – I
Perimenopause symptoms beginning with the letter I:
Insomnia, trouble sleeping through the night
Changes in sleep patterns are a symptom of perimenopause, characterized by trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, or complete insomnia. Perimenopause can bring less restful sleep, or no sleep at all. Many women suffer from sleep problems even if they do not experience hot flashes or night sweats.
If you have experienced insomnia previously, it usually doubles during perimenopause. Some women begin to experience restless sleep or sleep problems as from five to seven years before entering menopause. The changes in hormone levels are responsible for this.
