If you're between 40 and 50 and struggling with any aspect of your health, the changes in estrogen and progesterone that occur in perimenopause could be playing a part.   I love assisting women 40  with heavy bleeding, anxiety, irregular periods, PMS, hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog, allergies, irritability, insomnia and mild depression.   My passion is to help you understand the challenges of peri-menopause and support you to move through menopause with ease and grace.

Women in their early, mid, and late 40s often report that their health feels out of control. Many seemingly unrelated health problems can bubble to the surface at this time. This change in health might be a sign that you've entered perimenopause.

No two women seem to experience the transition to menopause the same way. The transition to menopause is challenging for nearly 30% of women.


Perimenopause is a period of around 5 to 7 years before menopause, and often begins at the age of 42 to 45, or often even younger. 

Declining progesterone and fluctuating estrogen levels can start to play havoc with the menstrual cycle. Women can experience clotting and very heavy bleeding at this time. Periods are often closer together.

Some women find that their PMS symptoms have worsened and irritability is now having a negative effect on their life and relationships.

The hormonal changes can also make us less able to deal with stress, making it easier to fall prey to anxiety, depression and insomnia.

The fluctuations in estrogen can affect other aspects of your health. Some women find that their allergies worsen in their 40s or bloating and reflux become a problem.

Hot flushes not typically a symptom of early menopause.

Towards the end of perimenopause, the typical symptoms of menopause may begin:

  • Long time periods between menstrual cycles
  • Declining libido 
  • Dry skin, itchy skin, and vaginal dryness
  • Hot flushes and night sweating 
  • Lighter bleeding 
  • Mood changes and irritability
  • Anxiety or depression 
  • Weight gain
