Perimenopause and menopause are natural events

The average age for women in the U.S. to go into menopause is 51 years, with a range from the mid-40s to the mid to end 50s. However, in some women, early menopause can occur even before the age of 40 and is a cause of infertility.

Is it peri-menopause?

Menopause is the time that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. Menopause is diagnosed after you've gone 12 months without a menstrual period, but for most women perimenopause (the time around or just before full menopause) happens well before you start having no periods. Menopause generally happens in your 40s or 50s, but premature or early menopause can happen even in your 20s and 30s and is a major contributor to infertility.

Menopause is a natural biological process. But the physical symptoms, such as hot flashes, and emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy or affect emotional health. There are many effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy.
