I knew when I started to feel the hot flashes and then the sweats. I was tired all the time and seemed depressed. I am not feeling that way now and it did last a couple of months. Great question.
I'm not female, but my mom asked to search for symptoms for it, and totally agree with lavender3957. My mom was in like a stressful mood all the time, used to tell me that her corporal temperature was higher than normal.
I would suggest going to the doctor for a routine blood test and that will tell if you are menopausal and what stage you are at. I did this a few months ago and was told that I was peri-menopausal which is the beginning of it. I don't get night sweats, but I do have hot flashes and feel tired most of the time. I get quite emotional and weepy at the smallest of things. My partner says that I am quite snappy some of the time.!!

I think you get irregular menses. Rest I don't know :-/. There must be some other problems as well (of course :-/), as there is a change in hormonal level.

My wife is at the point in her life now where she is getting frequent hot flashes. And as a result I'm really losing a lot of sleep at night. I'm spending half the night turning the thermostat up and down and opening and closing the windows. I love her and I'm not feeling sorry for myself (well,...
