What the heck is Perimenopause?
If you were born with ovaries, menopause is unavoidable. Menopause itself is a retrospective diagnosis, given when you have not menstruated for 365 days.
Perimenopause is the time leading up to that point and is typically when you become symptomatic. It can start as early as your 30’s and can last anywhere from 4 months to 14 years.
