Perimenopause symptoms can include irregular periods, hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, and changes in libido.
Perimenopause commonly is between 45-55 years old.
Vaginal dryness may be helped by staying hydrated, using personal lubricants and even coconut oil can help provide relief. Taking omega-3s and Vitamin E has also been shown to be beneficial.
Postmenopausal syndrome encompasses various symptoms such as hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, vaginal dryness, difficulty concentrating, mental confusion, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, osteoporotic symptoms, depression, headaches, vasomotor symptoms, and insomnia.
The best way to combat any menopausal weight gain is to work on getting your hormones balanced with hormone replacement therapy, adding more high-quality protein to your diet, increasing strength training exercises and to eat less refined, sugary foods. Also, to cut down on alcohol.
There are three stages of menopause, Perimenopause, Menopause, and Post Menopause. The average age of menopause is around 51, although it can vary between individuals. The process leading up to menopause is called perimenopause, which can last several years and is characterized by hormonal fluctuations and changes in the menstrual cycle. Each stage requires unique care, which is why it is important to know which stage you are in. Hormone testing done as part of our program will determine what stage you are in.
Perimenopause is the transitional stage leading up to menopause. It usually begins several years before menopause itself. During this phase, a woman’s hormone levels, particularly estrogen and progesterone, start to fluctuate. As a result, menstrual cycles may become irregular, with changes in the frequency and duration of periods. Women may experience symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, and changes in libido.
Post menopause refers to the stage following menopause where symptoms start to diminish. Some women may continue to experience certain symptoms, such as hot flashes, for several years after menopause. Postmenopausal women are also at an increased risk of certain health conditions, including osteoporosis and heart disease, due to the declining levels of estrogen. It is important for women to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, a balanced diet, and estrogen replacement therapy.
