Perimenopause (otherwise known as early menopause or premenopause) is the name given to the seven to 10 years preceding menopause. Here is a checklist to help you determine if you are in this stage of life. If you answer yes to two or more of these questions, you may be in early menopause.

• Do you have heavy, irregular periods?
• Are you retaining fluids?
• Have you gained more than 10 pounds?
• Are you experiencing sleep difficulties?
• Are you having headaches?
• Do you have bouts of brain fog—forgetting your friend’s first name, where you put your car keys, or the point of a text you recently studied?
• Have you recently discovered cysts in your breasts?
• Have you been told you have fibroid tumors?
• Have symptoms from endometriosis worsened?
• Are you over age 35?
• Do you suffer from premenstrual anxiety, irritability, and mood swings?
• Do you have a decreased interest in sex?
