Menopause is defined as not having a period for 12 months, but the time leading up to it, perimenopause, usually begins in the late 30s or 40s. This is when hormone levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone begin to fluctuate and drop off. While you may still be having regular periods, some of the other symptoms mentioned above can begin to occur. These symptoms may be only bothersome to some women, but for others they can be very difficult to live with.
