Perimenopause & Hormone Pellet Therapy for Women

Menopause has three separate stages (perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause) which are brought on during old age by naturally anticipated hormonal imbalance. That being said, even the most common of menopausal symptoms can prove difficult to manage for many women. Learn the normal symptoms of perimenopause in women below and explore how BioTE® Medical may be able to help!

What Is Menopause?

Women’s ovaries will naturally stop producing estrogen as they age. This process is called menopause. While certain women only undergo basic symptoms and discomfort, others experience a variety of negative symptoms. Estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle and affects women’s urinary tract, heart, blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles and even her emotional state.

What Are The Signs of Menopause?

The beginning of menopause has a great many associated symptoms. Sufferers of menopause may report such symptoms as reduction of menstrual cycle, include hot flashes, insomnia, pain with intercourse and incontinence.

What Are the Stages of Menopause?

The three stages of menopause are perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. Perimenopause is the beginning stage of menopause while postmenopause comes at the end of the cycle.

What is Perimenopause?

Perimenopause is what we call the first stages of menopause. The symptoms of this include changes in menstrual cycle, an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs), difficulty with incontinence, depression and mood swings, and decreased libido. While undergoing perimenopause, women can also potentially experience their hair becoming brittle, skin thinning, and a weakening of bone density.

What Are the Treatment Options for Perimenopause?

You can reduce the severity of your perimenopause symptoms by exercising daily, ensuring you get proper nutrition, and getting as much rest as possible and improving your bedtime routine. Some simple suggestions for improving your bedtime routine include going to bed at the same time every night, ensuring that your sleeping area is free from mobile devices or other distractions, and staying away from certain foods which negatively affect sleep, such as caffeine, alcohol and chocolate. Certain easy, home exercises (such as Kegels, which exercise your pelvic floor) can assist with problems with incontinence. Proper hydration, and avoiding alcohol can also help with incontinence.

What Is BHRT?

BHRT is a naturally derived, plant-based hormone supplement, roughly the size of a single grain of rice, that is administered subcutaneously into the skin. For women whose perimenopause symptoms are not being properly alleviated with self-directed treatment, think about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BioTE Medical provides patients with BHRT in the form of a pellet that releases a consistent dose of hormones to the body through a subcutaneous insertion.
