Menopause is the period of your life that marks the end of your menstrual cycles. It usually happens sometime in your late 40s or early 50s, but can happen earlier if you have a hysterectomy or a condition called primary ovarian insufficiency.

You stop getting periods and many of the symptoms and complications that come from them, and you can no longer get pregnant. You know you’ve officially entered menopause when you have gone 12 full months without a period.

Leading up to menopause is a stage called perimenopause. When people talk about menopause symptoms, they’re usually talking about the symptoms that come with perimenopause. 

During this time, your hormones are constantly fluctuating while on a general decline. This can cause many unforeseen symptoms and complications that might cause you to seek treatment.

Perimenopause lasts for an average of seven years but can last for as long as 14. During this time, you might experience bothersome symptoms that affect your mood, sleep, and relationships. 

If this is the case, you shouldn’t be afraid to seek treatment.

Common symptoms that occur leading up to menopause include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Chills
  • Night sweats
  • Memory and concentration issues
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Pain during sex
  • Vaginal dryness

You may still get periods every once in a while before they stop completely. Even though they’re irregular and you’re well on your way to menopause, you can still get pregnant during this time and should continue using contraceptives if you want to prevent pregnancy.


Dr Hall can help you regulate your hormones to alleviate symptoms during perimenopause and menopause. Instead of letting these symptoms disrupt your life, you may be able to undergo hormone therapy.

If you’re entering menopause and have symptoms that interfere with your work, relationships, or sleep, call our practice, or book a consultation for hormone therapy online today.
