Is this premenopause or perimenopause?

I'm 46 and have been experiencing many of the symptoms of perimenopause except for the hot flashes, sweating and decreased sex drive. Is this still considered premenopause or is this perimenopause?

  • The only way to know for certain is to have your hormones checked. While you decide whether or not to do this, take black cohosh every day, and eat at least one serving of good soy (like non-GMO edamame or tofu) every day.

  • honestly only your dr can tell you for sure. blood tests can pinpoint where you are in the whole menopause cycle
