    It's all about your flow. Period changes—whether they are further apart or closer together; longer or shorter, heavier or lighter—are the first indicator that you have entered perimenopause (or pre-menopause), the time frame of hormonal changes a woman goes through leading up to actually completing her period (this can last up to ten years). If you begin having perimenopausal period changes in, say, your late thirties or early forties, it’s no reason to panic, because menopause itself can still be a decade away. In fact, one reason you will always be asked the date of your last period at any medical appointment is because a change in periods can be an indicator of a great many health conditions—plus, a wide swath of medications may cause period changes and spotting. Before you rush to your own menopause diagnosis, consider that you could have a case of mistaken identity here.
