Perimenopause happens years before menopause actually begins in a woman's body. This is the time when the ovaries start to make less estrogen. It generally starts in a woman's 40s, but can start in some women in their early 30s. Perimenopause will continue until menopause actually begins in a woman. The average length of time is 4 years, but it can continue for 10 years, depending on when it began in a woman.

Perimenopause is not the same as premenopause, though the terms are often used interchangeably. They both occur before a woman goes through menopause, but with premenopause, a woman won't experience any menopause-related symptoms like she would with perimenopause.

Wondering if you're going through perimenopause? Take our quiz right now to find out! But remember, we are not doctors, so you'll want to reach out to your trusted physician if all signs point to you experiencing perimenopause.
