In brief: Lots of things

Menopause is the cessation of your period for 1year. Perimenopause is the time before that which can be a few months to a few years.
The signs/symptoms can be challenging for some and a breeze for others. Do not compare yourself to others but accept your body is different. You can have emotional swings, depression, brain fog, fatigue, vaginal dryness, more urine infections. Talk to md about hrt.
