Don’t toss the tampons just yet! Pre-menopause*1,2 is that 30-ish year stage in our lives that begins with our first period and ends at perimenopause—when we start having irregular periods because of declining estrogen levels.

Fun fact: a woman can spend more than 2,000 days of her life bleeding! (Wait, is that fact actually “fun”? Hmmmm. We digress.)

But since you’re here, you probably want to know what you can do now to prepare for perimenopause. Good news. All you have to do is enjoy life and treat your body like the temple you know it is. Your health care provider can give you some good ideas about how to best support a healthy, active lifestyle through exercise and diet to prep for the big change.

Scroll down to see a roadmap of the menopause journey and what you can expect during each stage.

Changes are on their way, but not just yet in early perimenopause.1,2 “Peri” is a fancy word for “near,” meaning you’re on your way to menopause—the point at which you haven’t had a period for 12 months.

Perimenopause is divided into two stages: early and late. Early perimenopause, or early peri for short, begins several years before menopause, and lasts until you’ve gone three straight months without a period.

During early peri, your ovaries gradually start producing less estrogen, which causes your periods to become irregular. Most women begin to see signs of early peri in their 40s, but some start in their 30s or even earlier.

So, what are the signs of early peri? Hot flashes, mood swings, irregular periods, difficulty concentrating, insomnia, and fatigue. But these symptoms aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing—some women may experience all of them or none of them, some women are extremely bothered by them, and others aren’t bothered by them at all.

Bottom line: everyone’s menopause experience is unique, and no matter what you’re going through, we’re here to help! Scroll down to learn more about your symptoms and how to find help.

Late Perimenopause

“The Change” is getting closer in late perimenopause.1,2 “Peri” is a fancy word for “near,” meaning you’re on your way to menopause—the point at which you haven’t had a period for 12 months.

Perimenopause is divided into two stages: early and late. During early perimenopause, your body starts to produce less estrogen. During late perimenopause, or late peri for short, estrogen declines even further, making your periods even more irregular. Late peri officially begins when you have skipped three or more cycles and have stopped bleeding entirely for more than 90 days.

Estrogen is some powerful stuff, and its decline throws a major wrench in a woman’s body as it tries to figure out its new normal. For many women, symptoms that started in early peri—like hot flashes, mood swings, brain fog, insomnia, and fatigue—can increase in both frequency and severity during late peri. But, these symptoms aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing—some women may experience all of them or none of them, some women are extremely bothered by them, and others aren’t bothered by them at all.

Bottom line: everyone’s menopause experience is unique, and no matter what you’re going through, we’re here to help! Scroll down to learn more about your symptoms and how to find help.

Post-Menopause

Welcome to the next chapter of your life!

Post-menopause1,2 begins the moment you reach menopause (the point at which you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without a period) and continues for the rest of your life. And there’s good news—many women in post-menopause*1,2 experience a reduction (or even elimination) of earlier symptoms like hot flashes, brain fog, mood swings, insomnia, etc. Phew.

You start to feel that relief when your body gets used to lower levels of estrogen and has stabilized to a new “normal.” Though, for some women, this new low level of estrogen can mean noticeable changes in symptoms, like vaginal dryness and bladder leakage. But, these symptoms aren’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing—some women may experience all of them or none of them, some women are extremely bothered by them, and others aren’t bothered by them at all.

Bottom line: everyone’s menopause experience is unique, and no matter what you’re going through, we’re here to help! Scroll down to learn more about your symptoms and how to find help.

It’s Complicated...

Your exact stage in menopause can’t be pinpointed. Irregular periods are the easiest way to identify your menopause stage, but since you’ve experienced something that may have impacted your period, it’s hard to estimate where you are in your menopause journey. But don’t fret. Although your stage of menopause is unclear, you can still get help managing your symptoms.

It’s also worth noting that for some women whose bodies stop producing estrogen suddenly, menopause may seem to happen overnight. This sudden change in the body’s estrogen levels causes many women feel menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and brain fog more abruptly. Tons of fun, we know.

Of course, these symptoms aren’t one-size-fits-all—some women may experience all of them or none of them, some women are extremely bothered by them, and others aren’t bothered by them at all.

Bottom line: everyone’s menopause experience is unique, and no matter what you’re going through, we’re here to help! Scroll down to learn more about your symptoms and how to find recommendations.
