How Do You Know When You're Going Through the "Change"?

“You may notice your periods are irregular and you may experience hot flashes,” says Barbara Kantrowitz, co-author of The Menopause Book and participant in iVillage’s Menopause Conversations videos. “Your doctor can test your hormones to see whether your levels are high or low, which may indicate that you’re in peri-menopause.” (Perimenopause is “the change” in which your estrogen levels start to drop over several years, eventually leading to not having a period for a full year – that’s menopause.)
