Were you looking for information about Perimenopause? Peri-menopause is a common misspelling of perimenopause.
Perimenopause is the time leading up to menopause. This period of time can begin as early as age 35 and last for many years for some women; for others, it can last just a few months or a few years. During perimenopause, your body starts making less hormones (namely, estrogen and progesterone) and you begin to lose the ability to become pregnant.
