Women's Health Test - Is There an Early Signs of Menopause Test?

Menopause is a major area of health concern for women. There are
health concern areas unique to women - menstruation issues, including
premenstrual tension or PMT, and pregnancy. Women are also more
likely (although not exclusively) to be concerned by what might be
described as beauty and health issues - skin care, anti-aging issues
and so on.

Yes, there is a free online women’s health test from a leading
women’s health clinic. Why? As early as in their 30’s and 40’s,
many women begin experiencing symptoms that make them wonder -
are these early signs of menopause?

What are common early signs of menopause? The most common
symptoms include PMS, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, loss of
sex drive, hair loss or unwanted hair growth and fibroids. Some
women have one or two of these symptoms while others may
experience several symptoms at the same time. The result can be
mildly irritating or it can be exhausting and overwhelming.

Menopause itself is not an illness but a natural process for a
woman’s body. There are normal changes in the reproductive
system and cycle and ultimately, the reproductive system will
cease to function. That is normal. However, certain menopause
symptoms are indications of underlying hormonal imbalances or
damage from poor eating habits, stress and other factors. And
you may feel like you're the only woman to experience symptoms,
but millions of women in the industrialized countries are going
through the same experience many years before the normal age of

What happens so frequently is that women put enormous demands on
their bodies – much more stress than it was designed to handle –
and then do not give it the support it needs. Women likely have
demanding and stressful careers. Women have families to take
care of on a daily basis. The relationship with one’s spouse or
partner may not be the best. Aging parents may require help.
These and other responsibilities add up in the toll taken on a
woman’s body.

And at the same time, the woman’s body may not be receiving the
support it needs to function as it was designed to do. Poor
eating habits, lack of exercise, excess caffeine and alcohol add
to the problem instead of helping the body cope with the demands
placed on it.

This lack of balance between the "demands made" and "support
given" is what gives rise to many symptoms. And are the health
problems you are having related in any way? Very likely!

When taking a women’s health and early signs of menopause test,
here's what should be considered:

1. Which symptoms do you have? Certain symptoms are related to
each other and are related to the same underlying causes.
Knowing which symptoms you have is important information.

2. How mild or severe are your symptoms? Perhaps a symptom is
"mild" and it’s not a big deal. It may be “moderate to severe”,
meaning you can deal with it but it is a real problem. Or you
may consider it “very severe”, in other words, you can barely
function because of it.

3. What are you demanding of your body? Are you frequently under
stress? Do you not always eat when you should? What prescription
drugs are you taking? What about the consumption of caffeine and

4. What kind of support are you giving your body? What do you
eat, do you exercise and are you taking a high-quality
nutritional supplement?

5. What is your age? Your age is important, because you need to
compare your health with other women your age.
