Learn How to Deal With Perimenopause

What is Perimenopause and How Does it Affect You?

Menopause has its own transition period, also known as perimenopause, or rather, the years leading up to the final menstrual period. Perimenopause is often notated by the switch from regular menstrual periods coming closer together then skipping before they completely discontinue.

Women ages 45 - 55 are generally likely to start seeing symptoms of perimenopause which can last around 10 years. This transitional period can be a difficult time since there are many symptoms which may occur ranging from mild to intense and can vary depending on the person.
