When Does Perimenopause Start in Women?

Perimenopause, if you’re curious, breaks down like this: “Peri” means “around.” So, perimenopause describes the time “around menopause.”

For some women, perimenopause lasts only a few months and for others, four to 10 years. Perimenopause ends and menopause begins when you have stopped having periods for one full year, or 12 months.

As women go through the perimenopausal transition to menopause, the body’s estrogen and progesterone levels fluctuate. Many of the changes you experience during perimenopause (irregular periods, trouble sleeping, hot flashes, vaginal and bladder problems, mood swings and more), are because your estrogen levels have dropped.

When does perimenopause start?

Perimenopause can affect women at different ages. You may begin to have symptoms like irregular periods sometime in your 40s. But some women notice changes in their mid-30s or even earlier.
