General

Perimenopause refers to the transitional period before menopause, during which hormone levels change and the body makes its natural transition into menopause. During this time, hot flashes, sleep problems and other symptoms may emerge for some women. 

Menopause refers to the point in time 12 months after a woman’s last menstrual period and is determined retroactively.

While perimenopause most commonly begins for women ages 40-44 years old, it can begin for some women as early as 35 years old or eight to 10 years before menopause. On average, 45 years old is the age of onset for perimenopause and 51 years old for menopause.

As women enter perimenopause, irregular periods are often among the first signs as most women will transition from having fairly predictable menstrual cycles to more unpredictable cycles. Hot flashes, sleep disruption and mood change are also among the earliest perimenopause signs.

Hormonal changes during the transition into menopause can trigger additional symptoms, including fatigue, irritability, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, night sweats, and more. The severity and frequency of these symptoms may vary over time. Because menopause affects everyone differently, some women may experience no symptoms while others may have symptoms that greatly interfere with their daily lives. To aid with symptom relief, each proprietary Amberen formula has been specifically developed to address the physical and emotional changes a woman’s body goes through as it enters perimenopause and throughout the menopause journey.

Amberen has four dietary supplements to help aid in providing targeted symptom relief leading up to and during the menopause lifecycle, including: 

  • Amberen® Advanced Perimenopause Relief capsules
  • Amberen® Advanced Menopause Relief capsules
  • Amberen® Advanced Menopause Relief gummies
  • Amberen® Energy | Mood | Sleep gummies for perimenopause relief

If you are 35+ years old, experiencing perimenopausal symptoms and have had at least one menstrual cycle in the last 12 months, we recommend Amberen Advanced Perimenopause Relief or Amberen Energy | Mood | Sleep gummies depending on which symptoms you are experiencing. See product pages for more specifics on which symptoms they address.

If you are seeking symptom relief and haven’t had a period in the last 12 consecutive months or longer, we recommend Amberen Advanced Menopause Relief gummies or capsules.
