What are the perimenopause symptoms?

There are dozens of changes and symptoms associated with menopause found in five major categories:

  1. Vasomotor [Temperature]
  2. Urogenital [Vagina and Urinary Tract]
  3. Psychological [Mental Health]
  4. Somo-Vegetative [Body]
  5. Somo-Vegatative [Head]

Some of these are temporary whereas others can be permanent. Individual women often experience a range of symptoms from each category, varying from hot flashes and night sweats to anxiety and mood swings. Clinicians pair information about a woman’s symptoms with the date of the last menstrual period to determine whether a woman is likely to be in perimenopause, also known as the menopause transition.
