In brief: Yes

Think of perimenopause as a gradual process rather than a discrete condition.
In their thirties, many women begin to experience deficiencies in progesterone and testosterone. This can lead to loss of sex drive, poor sleep, mild weight gain, mood swings and more.

In brief: Yes

Perimenopausal hormone levels are highly variable.
In fact, it is this variation that is thought to be associated with a lot of the symptoms. Although average age of menopause is around 52, there have been recent studies that show up to 25% of women may have perimenopausal symptoms that last up to 10 years.
