What is the difference between perimenopause and menopause?

Peri-menopause is the phase before menopause, although many people mistake them for each other and don’t distinguish between the two. Menopause is when you have been period-free for a whole year. Peri-menopause is the time frame before this and the length of peri-menopause can vary from one year to ten. It is during peri-menopause that women encounter menopausal symptoms, although some of these can continue into menopause and post menopause. The ovaries are preparing for the cessation of their main role, which causes a hormonal imbalance. It is this hormonal change that causes menopausal symptoms.
