I just looked up the definition of perimenopause because I was confused about the whole thing with menopause being only one day and that one day was a year after your last period and this is what I found in a medical dictionary:Perimenopause is the period around the onset of menopause that is often marked by various physical signs (as hot flashes and menstrual irregularity). What this tells me is you are beginning to have "symptoms" of menopause, i.e., the hot flashes and menstrual irregularity. So from what I have read and learned working in the medical field, perimenopause is the onset of menopause. Many, many women have menopausal symptoms or are in menopause for a long time. Again, from what I have read, learned and am experiencing, menopause is just not one day. I wish it were!
