What is perimenopause?

Perimenopause is the transition period leading up to menopause. It’s different for every woman, but usually starts in her 40s. For some women, perimenopause lasts a few years; for others, it can last up to 10 years. The symptoms of perimenopause are caused by changes in hormone levels. These changes can cause hot flashes, trouble sleeping, mood swings, and weight gain.
