What are the symptoms of Perimenopause?

Oestrogen receptors are in every cell throughout a women’s body.  Consequently, as oestrogen declines during perimenopause, this can lead to a variety of symptoms, impacting both physical and mental health.  While some women may encounter only a few symptoms, others may face a multitude.

These symptoms can fluctuate over time, with some women noticing improvements in hot flashes and sweating while simultaneously experiencing new symptoms like low mood, anxiety, and fatigue.
