Medical Mondays: How do I know if I’m going through perimenopause?

The only real symptoms I have is an irregular menstrual cycle and fatigue that get progressively worsens throughout the day. I work with menopausal women that say I am about to go through the change. I am only 42. No night sweats, hot flashes or changes in libido. How do I know for sure if I’m going through perimenopause?

Perimenopause Defined.

Perimenopause also referred to as pre-menopause or early menopause is the length of time before and one year after the final menstrual period, during which ovarian hormonal patterns change. The average age at which irregular cycles develop is approximately age 47 but in many cases can start as early as 35 years old. Like menopause, perimenopause is a normal part of a woman’s life cycle. The length varies for each woman, starting either just a few months before menopause or even several years before being menopausal. Women can experience many of the same signs of menopause and can find relief with bioidentical hormone therapy.
