    Women in their 20s and 30s can go through menopause, let alone peri. All kinds of reasons for it, but there is no age limit, just a common age bracket for it to start happening.

    You are 43 and that is quite average by the looks of this board. I am 44 and only starting to get the full on symptoms, but I'd say the ball started rolling before I was 40.

    I was 43 when "diagnosed" first on a pay phone when I called the clinic (which deserves a : ) icon... I had called to ask if a flu were going around, b/c I kept having these "fevers" but didn't seem to be getting sick or a sore throat, so I posited to the clinic person that perhaps my immune system was doing a great job of fighting something off --  hah) and then w blood test when I got there.

    You are at the right age where peri menopause starts its around 40s sometimes in their thirties but uncommon 

    40 and above is when a woman starts to have peri menopause signs 

    i am 46 going to be 47 in a month and i am in menopause myself

    I have just turned 38 and was 37 when symptoms started. Early perimenopause runs in our family.
