Bioidentical Hormones for Perimenopause and Menopause
Perimenopuase and Menopause Bioidentical Hormone Doctor, Jerrold Weinberg, M.D. of Women’s Health and Menopause Center in West Bloomfield, Michigan helps relieve the symptoms brought on by hormone changes in women. Even though all women go through menopause, many are surprised at how quickly it comes on and the severity of the symptoms. Thanks to perimenopause, you may start experiencing issues as early as your mid 30s. Then there’s menopause itself, which doesn’t technically occur until you have gone 12 full months without a menstrual period. Although there is considerable variation, 51 is the average age of menopause for American women.
As if that wasn’t enough, many women continue to feel miserable with post-menopausal symptoms. It’s no wonder that women everywhere are demanding a better, more natural treatment that helps them live as comfortable as possible. For many, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers relief that prescription medications from their doctor just can’t match. These bioidentical hormones, which replicate what your body once produced, can bring welcome relief for menopausal women. Perimenopause and Menopause Bioidentical Doctor, Jerrold Weinberg, M.D. will discuss your symptoms and customize a treatment plan for you to help resolve common conditions caused by hormone imbalance. Some of the most common conditions it treats are highlighted below.
Before menopause, you will experience perimenopause. This is a transition period that usually occurs several years earlier. The ovaries begin producing less estrogen once a woman enters her 40’s. Perimenopause lasts an average of four years and includes common symptoms like:
- Hot flashes
- Tender breasts
- Decreased sex drive
- Urinary urgency & leakage
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
- Worsened premenstrual syndrome
- Difficulty sleeping
- Irregular periods are also common during this time. Spotting after sex or between periods, periods that are very heavy or include blood clots, longer periods, and periods that are closer together are not normal and could indicate that a problem exists.
If you notice any of these symptoms, talk to your OB/GYN right away.
You may notice some of the same symptoms when you enter menopause, including hot flashes, fatigue, and insomnia. There may be some new signs that appear as well, like:
- Joint or muscle pain
The experience is different for every woman, so you may not notice all of the symptoms listed here.
Menopause Risks & Treatments
While menopause is completely natural, it can put you at a higher risk for other health problems like osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart disease. It is best to remain active and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to lower risks.
