Perimenopause and menopause care

Many women don’t realize that perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause, often begins in the 40s, and can last an average of four years. Most women who experience hot flashes, trouble sleeping, mood swings and other changes during these years don’t relate them to menopause because they think they are too young.
