And I'll just add that I suspect that peri menopause simply starts younger and lasts longer than the experts have discovered yet. At 30 y.o. a woman's last period might not be for another 20 years, but that doesn't mean that her fertility isn't winding down already. I think the process is very gradual.
I'm reading What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Premenopause and he talks about premenopause being the 20 years before menopause. The issue he talks a lot about is estrogen dominance (which is what causes the menopausal symptoms) and he believes that there's more of it and earlier because of all the xenoestrogens we are subjecting our bodies to. He suggests that many women need natural progesterone supplementation to counteract the estrogen dominance. I'm in the middle of the book, so that's what I'm getting thus far anyway.
