Most women become aware of their transition into perimenopause during their mid to late 40’s. Perimenopause normally lasts for several years; its duration varies for every woman, and its course is difficult to predict. Perimenopause is the time when a woman’s body transitions from her fertile, child-bearing years, into middle age. During this natural transition, the body undergoes biologic changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production and a woman’s menstrual cycle becomes irregular and varied, and her fertility diminished. Perimenopause can last 4-6 years and usually ends after twelve months of amenorrhea, or no menstruation, which is when a woman enters menopause.

Common symptoms of perimenopause include:
  • Depression
  • Hot Flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular Menstrual Periods
  • Mood Swings
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Weight Gain
