At the first sign of changes in the cycle, it is time to begin thinking about some hormone support. Most symptoms won’t become a big deal until a year or two into the change and problems have already arisen. As a rule, the longer you wait, the harder it will be to manage the symptoms.

Since the average age for beginning menopause is 51 in the US, ideally a person would begin with some mild hormone support in your late 40s. Your mileage may vary.
