In brief: Both

Peri-menopause is defined as the variable period of time "around" or leading up to menopause (the full cessation of menstural function x 1 year).
Climacteric is described as the perimenopausal time when reproductive functions slow and then cease and many of the classic symptoms develop- hot flashes, weight gain, fatigue, diminished libido, mood changes, bone loss- terms can be used interchangably.
