    • Those are the possibles, but not necessarily what you will experience. Myself, I haven’t experienced much that is listed. Some women, as Kyah mentioned, don’t go through menopause until late in their 50’s or even 60. If you‘re taking birth control pills, that can affect a delay in feeling the symptoms.
