Perimenopause is variable but most women start having symptoms about 5 years before menses stop. Many women stop cycling for a few months and think they are menopausal only to start again.

My advice is quit: smoking. Nothing is safe when you smoke. Why are you worried about medications when you are already consuming a drug that you know is going to at least shorten your life if not give you cancer, lung disease or increase your risk of a heart attack.

I am a 45 yr old female and in Perimenapause. I have always had a very low libido but now it has skyrocketed. Is this normal?
Not abnormal: Well, there may not be a clear expected hormonal cause, but if you are okay with this it seems foolish to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Talk with your doc to discuss these and other options. ...Read more
