Perimenopause takes place over the several years leading up to menopause. Frequently, it’s the time when women experience the most common symptoms of menopause.
Since perimenopause takes place while women are still having periods, it often sneaks up on them and leads to confusion — before their mid-forties, many women haven’t even heard of perimenopause.
It’s not about the “pause,” it’s all about “peri.”

Menopause is one of the few certainties in life for women, so get ready for it, mentally and physically.
If you’ve already begun, there is still much you can do to make your menopause years as golden as they should be.
According to the North American Menopause Society, perimenopause can last for 4 to 8 years.
During perimenopause the ovaries gradually rebalance their estrogen and progesterone production in preparation for menopause and the final cessation of periods.
With the average age for menopause being 51 in North America, perimenopause generally starts for women in their mid-40s (however, it is possible for perimenopause to start MUCH earlier).
For the vast majority of women, symptoms can be managed and reversed through lifestyle changes such as adapting our diet and nutrition, incorporating movement and exercise, getting proper sleep, avoiding toxins and learning to relax.
Every woman is different. Some may experience every symptom on the list, while others deal with very few, or none at all:
+ Changing periods (length of cycle, duration of period)
+ Hot flashes
+ Night sweats
+ Anxiety, mood swings, irritability and depression
+ Loss of confidence
+ Decreased libido or sex drive
+ Vaginal dryness
+ Breast tenderness
+ Increased PMS
+ Urinary leakage, urgency or Urinary Tract Infections
+ Aches and pains in muscles and joints
Difficult symptoms may require further investigation to determine the root cause and can often be alleviated by using natural treatments and therapies such as acupuncture, homoeopathy and naturopathy.
Your host of the summit, Dr. Michelle Sands, was in her 20s with irregular and absent periods, mood swings, joint pain, infertility, low libido, digestive issues and insomnia.
She was told her ovaries had failed and to manage her symptoms for the rest of her life with birth control pills, antidepressants and other medications.
She found a better way — a natural way to help her body heal itself — and she’s here to teach you how to do the very same, no matter whether you’re in your 20s or decades older!
