Do all women experience perimenopausal (menopausal transition) symptoms?

No, about 20% of women have mild or no symptoms, or don’t seek medical care. About 40% of women have mild to moderate symptoms and seek medical care. Another 20 % have intense symptoms and need medical care.

Generally, women who have a high BMI and chronic stress in their lives tend to have more menopausal symptoms and those symptoms last for longer periods of time. Genetics may also impact your perimenopausal symptoms. There is a good correlation between the length and intensity of your menopausal transition and your mother’s menopausal transition.
