Does Menopause Happen in My 40's?

The 40's are a time for perimenopause. That perimenopause time frame before your period is actually stopped can last from anywhere from 2 to 7 years. Some people feel absolutely fine in their early 40's some people don’t not feel fine at all and need help a little sooner.
