Perimenopause usually begins in your 40s, but you could start to notice changes in your mid- to late 30s. This can last for up to 10 years until you reach menopause, which begins when you haven’t had a period for at least one year.

It can cause swelling and pain because the tissue grows and bleeds in areas where it can’t easily get out of your body as it would normally during menstruation.
