Perimenopause | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

There is no prevention for perimenopause. All women will go through either a natural or surgical menopause. Women who, for one reason or another, have surgery that removes their reproductive organs earlier in life may not experience perimenopause.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

The long-term effects of perimenopause may depend on any treatments. All hormone replacement therapies have side effects and risks of their own.

What are the risks to others?

Perimenopause poses no risks to others.
