In brief: Irregular menses

Pre- or peri-menopause is often characterized by irregular periods.
This means your period might come at different times of the month, might skip month(s), and might be longer or shorter than normal. (it's important to realize you could still get pregnant during this time!) other symptoms can include hot flashes, sleep disturbances, sexual dysfunction, breast pain, depressed mood, others.
