The perimenopause is a term used to define the time leading up to the menopause when hormone levels of oestrogen and progesterone begin to fluctuate. During this time your period could remain regular or you may start to notice some menstrual changes. Perimenopausal period could typically become heavier and more frequent before eventually becoming much lighter  and more spaced out or you could even occasionally skip your monthly period altogether.   Aside from changes in your period you could also start to feel a little hot under the collar.
