How can I tell if I am approaching the menopause pregnancy?

Signs of the menopause include a regular menstrual cycle becoming increasingly irregular, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. It is important to be aware of these when you are planning a pregnancy, particularly if your mother experienced early menopause (before the age of 40), as this condition may be hereditary (14).

Most women are perimenopausal up to 10 years before their periods stop altogether. If you suspect you may be approaching the menopause yet are hoping to become pregnant you should talk to your GP about having tests done to measure levels of AMH (anti-mullerian hormone), which goes down just before the menopause, and FSH, which goes up (12). These will help to provide some indication of your current level of fertility.
