What Is Menopause?
Perimenopause vs. Menopause
Both menopause and perimenopause are closely linked, but not the same.
Perimenopause is the process by which the body begins to wind down hormone production in preparation for menopause. Usually this begins 8-10 years before the full onset of menopause. During this time, women can still experience periods and get pregnant.
Once a woman has gone a year without a menstrual period, she is then going through menopause. At this point her menstrual cycle has fully stopped and her ovaries no longer release eggs every month. The ovaries have also stopped producing a majority of their estrogen. These hormonal and physical changes can result in a wide range of symptoms.

The Symptoms of Menopause
Because perimenopause and menopause are so closely linked, their symptoms are also very similar. These side effects can range in severity from barely noticeable to making it difficult to function normally in day-to-day life. While some women face daily hot flashes for years or a significant weight gain, others may face other challenges like depression, increased anxiety, and other mental symptoms.
Regardless of the severity of your symptoms, the hormonal fluctuations of perimenopause and menopause can reduce your quality of life. It is important to understand that while everyone experiences some of these symptoms, it’s not necessary to suffer through them without help. Speaking to an experienced hormone or medical professional can lead to solutions for treatment that ease your symptoms and leave you feeling like yourself again.
