Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Perimenopause or menopause transition is the time before menopause when the ovaries decrease the production of estrogen.
It lasts up to menopause.

The time of perimenopause varies from one woman to the next. It can range from a few months up to 10 years, though the average length is about 4 years.

Because of this variation in the perimenopausal time frame, it would be difficult to predict when your menopause will start.

I hope this helps
