Hi ZY and Priyah,

Yoga out in the Pacific is Prana rich. That is a big PLUS! Well, this has turned out to be a great thread and the list of symptoms describes what more than 50% of us feel.

The average life span of perimenopause is 4 years. Unfortunately, for some women this stage may last 10 years, but some get off easily with a few months. Perimenopause ends when a woman has gone one year and a month without having a period.

Here are some quirky side-effects:

Periods are very heavy, or accompanied by blood clots.
Periods occur closer together.
Periods can last several days longer than usual.
You can spot between periods.

Potential causes of abnormal bleeding can include birth control pills, pregnancy, fibroids, blood clotting problems, hormonal imbalances, or in rare instances - cancer. Blood tests to check your hormone levels can be helpful, but may be difficult to evaluate because of erratic fluctuations of hormones during peri. It is usually more useful to have many tests done at different times to compare the results.

Warning: Even though there is a decline in fertility during perimenopause, you can still become pregnant.

About Yoga for perimenopause: It is helpful just due to stabilizing mood swings. There are obviously many more benefits. The feelings ZY had about ending it all are also very common. The docs would rather put you on elevator drugs to create zombies. In that case, the problem has not been addressed, but masked by a heavy prescription that creates addiction problems down the road.
