About the Stages of Menopause


Perimenopause – commonly and mistakenly referred to as menopause – is the first stage in the menopausal transition and is the time leading up to the last period.

It usually starts in a woman’s mid to late 40s, marking to beginning of the end of a woman’s reproductive functions.

As such, drastic fluctuations of estrogen and progesterone ensue, which are key hormones that drive the processes of the menstrual cycle throughout fertile years.

During this time, many women will experience common symptoms characteristic of this transition, including irregular periods, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, sleep problems, hair loss, fatigue, breast pain, headaches, vaginal dryness, and much more.


Menopause is a point in time in which a woman has gone twelve consecutive months without a period. Any time before this date is known as perimenopause, and from the following day on, a woman is considered postmenopausal.

The average age of menopause in the United States is 51. However, women may reach their menopause date as early as their late 30s or as late as their late 50s. Genetics play a large role in its onset.


This is the last stage in the menopausal transition, and it lasts for the rest of a woman’s life.

During this time, more serious health complications may arise in light of an estrogen deficiency, including an increased risk of developing osteoporosis, heart disease, dyspareunia, incontinence, and more.

It is important for women to realize that aforementioned perimenopause symptoms may continue into postmenopause if not properly managed and treated.
