In brief: Change in bleeding
The defining change is no bleeding for one year. During the peri menopausal period the most common change is irregular vaginal bleeding.
Can be more but is usual less and less often. Eventually it slows to nothing. Skin, vaginal changes happen, sex drive changes, mood can change, your risk for heart disease and osteoporosis increases.Or it can be very uneventful and calm!every woman is different.

In brief: Numerous.
Every cell in a woman's body has estrogen and Progesterone receptors, so the entire body suffers once in menopause (when estrogen and Progesterone production cease completely).
Symptoms range from depression, insomnia, hot flashes, fatigue, brain fog, to vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, low libido, dry skin, urine leakage, to increased risk of osteoporosis, dementia, and heart disease.
