Menopause and Perimenopause

Menopause can happen at just about any age. It is normally common with women 40 and up but it can happen to anyone in their 20s’ also. 

For those that do not know; Perimenopause is the time your body gets you ready for menopause which mean it is the end of your reproductive years and its getting your ready for menopause.  Menopause is where your reproductive hormones are extremely low and you really do not get periods but you can still shed your uterus and still have some bleeding and or spotting for a few minutes to a day it is not uncommon.
