I have been in perimenopause for years.  He knows.  I haven't changed, yet, lol.  I didn't have a period for 9 months but wouldn't you know, it came back again a couple months ago.   Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr  I figured as such as I had no symptoms at all.

I went through this back in '96-'98.  Hubby figured it out before I did, lol.  But yes, I believe he needs to know.

I have to say Im surprised by the question.

For what reason in the world would it be a secret to keep from your husband???  That makes absolutely no senses at all.

oh btw..... last month I missed for the first time ever.  When I told hubs in a very excited way, he misunderstood for half a moment and thought I was telling him I was pregnant.  LMBO!!!  He was actually a bit excited.  silly silly silly man.

Yep, my hubby knows way more than he would like to about my cycle:) I would absolutely tell him about going through the change.

Absolutely!  When my cycles started to get irregular a couple of years ago he caught on before I decided to mention it to him--I wanted to be sure myself.  It did surprise me as it was a little early for it to happen.

I don't think you should hide anything from each other.
