Perimenopause - Balanced Hormones Center

What is perimenopause?

Perimenopause refers to the time leading up to menopause, when a woman's body makes the natural transition toward permanent infertility. The hallmark of perimenopause is hormonal fluctuations - primarily estrogen. This phase can begin up to 10 years before menopause.

During perimenopause, estrogen levels rise and fall unevenly, which signals the ovaries to make less estrogen each month. Common symptoms include:

While frustrating, these symptoms are normal for perimenopause. However, extreme or prolonged symptoms may signal an underlying health issue. Consult your doctor about severe symptoms.
