Many women report experiencing menopause-type symptoms as early as their late 30s and early 40s.
The findings, from a survey of more than 2,400 participants, indicate that some women might be surprised to find themselves experiencing menopause symptoms not only much younger than they expected, but before they have stopped having their period.
Nina Coslov, lead author and co-founder of Women Living Better, which conducted the survey, says women reporting these symptoms to their healthcare provider might be told that they’re “Too young for perimenopause” or that “It can’t be perimenopause because you are still getting a monthly period.”
