In brief: Perimenopause
is the months before the cessation of menses.
Many women have adequate estrogen during these months. Most women do not ovulate or ovulate sporadically during this transition so they do not produce progesterone. A blood test can determine your need.

Ther are of course specific reasons why an individual women might be cautioned against hrt.
