Perimenopausal Periods & Changes

Perimenopause means “around menopause”. It is the
time which starts when your ovaries reduce production
of the female hormone oestrogen and before the time
before your periods stop.

The hormonal changes which occur before menopause
begins, start much earlier. These perimenopausal
symptoms can often begin in the early to mid-40’s, but
in some cases occurring as early as the mid to late 30’s.


You might notice you’re just a little grouchier,
your periods aren’t quite as regular, or, they’re
much heavier. However, if you’re having very
heavy bleeding there can be other things that
affect your menstrual cycle, so it’s worth
speaking to your GP if you are concerned
about any changes to your periods.

But because symptoms such as these often
begin years before your periods become
majorly affected, it’s all too easy to overlook
or dismiss them as a result of a busy
modern lifestyle.


Pre-menopausal changes may be felt
all over the body and can continue for
anything from two to ten years.


Eventually, more obvious physical signs
such as hot flushes, night sweats and/
or palpitations, thinning hair, brain fog,
memory lapses, loss of skin tone may
be present. And increasing gaps
between, and eventual absence of,
periods for a full 12 months will make it
clear that you’ve transitioned into full

Hysterectomy & Early Menopause

A hysterectomy (removal of all or part of the womb)
should not cause early menopause because your
ovaries are still regulating hormones and still releasing
eggs. Your periods will stop once the womb has been
removed, but this does not mean you will go through
menopause straight away. It can be more difficult to
tell when you eventually do start menopause, since
menstruation will no longer be an indication.

Typically you will go through menopause around the
normal age, mid-late 40’s or early 50’s. However,
some women who have had a hysterectomy do
experience premature menopause by 1-2 years.
