The peri-menopause is the stage in a woman’s life when she begins the long journey into the menopause. The menopause is also called the transition or the change of life.
The peri-menopause , when the production of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone begins to decline starts from the age of forty and can last for as short as 5 years or as long as 10 years. Though the menopause is a new phase in a woman’s life and every woman should look forward to it, the perimenopause however is something else because it comes with a lot of symptoms that could be both disturbing and debilitating if not well managed.
