Today we’re going to talk about the age of perimenopause. Hi, I’m Deborah Maragopoulos, intuitive, integrative family nurse practitioner. Do you ever wonder if you am in perimenopause? What is the actual age that you are supposed to reach before you reach perimenopause? Well let us take a look at that. It really kind of matters what happened to you during your hormonal lifespan.
So, when you start puberty at anywhere from ages Eleven to Fifteen, and you have your first menstrual cycle, you are going to see a mimic of your hormones in the perimenopausal period on the other end of the cycle. Most women menstruate for about thirty-five years. So that window is going to be shorter if you started you periods earlier, longer if you started your periods later.
