What Is It?
Premenopause is the first stage in a woman's reproductive life, during which she has the highest chances of getting pregnant.
When Does it Start and End?
Premenopause begins at puberty and lasts until she enters the menopausal transition in her early to mid-40s.
What Happens in Premenopause?
In premenopause, female fertility is at its best, although it gradually declines with age, especially once women enter their mid-30s. There are no menopause symptoms in this stage, but women might experience occasional discomforts from hormonal fluctuations around the time of their periods, such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), or ovulation.
