Strictly speaking symptoms only occur when periods have finally stopped. It is generally recommended to allow a year to pass before drawing this conclusion.

These symptoms, which can be experienced in the years before the onset of menopause (sometimes referred to as peri-menopause), are generally far worse than those following after. In some women symptoms can start ten years before, sometimes they can persist from 5 to 10 years after.
