Perimenopause Symptoms in Women

The three phases of menopause (perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause) are brought on by naturally anticipated hormonal imbalance during the process of aging. However, even normal symptoms of menopause can be torturous for women. Learn the normal symptoms of perimenopause in women below and explore how BioTE® Medical may be able to help!

What is Menopause?

Menopause is the process women go through as they age wherein their ovaries stop producing estrogen. Some women experience minimal symptoms and discomfort while others experience many unpleasant symptoms. Estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle and affects the urinary tract, heart, blood vessels, bones, breasts, skin, hair, mucous membranes, pelvic muscles and emotional state of women.

What Are the Earliest Symptoms of Menopause?

There are many symptoms associated with the beginning of menopause. Some of the most common early symptoms include reduction of menstrual cycle, include hot flashes, insomnia, pain with intercourse and incontinence.

What Are the Stages of Menopause?

There are three stages of menopause. These include perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. Perimenopause is the earliest stage of menopause, while postmenopause refers to the time after menopause ceases.

What is Perimenopause?

Perimenopause is a name given to the beginning stages of menopause. The symptoms of this include changes in menstrual cycle, trouble with incontinence, an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs), decreased libido, depression and mood swings. During perimenopause, women may also experience their skin thinning, hair becoming brittle and a weakening of bone density.

What Are Alternative Treatments of Perimenopause?

Exercise during the day, proper nutrition, getting as much rest as possible and improving your bedtime routine may help reduce the severity of perimenopause symptoms. Some simple suggestions for improving your bedtime routine include not leaving mobile devices near your bed, avoiding foods that can reduce quality of sleep such as chocolate, caffeine or alcohol and going to bed at the same time every night. Problems with incontinence may also be lessened by exercises that strengthen the pelvic floor such as Kegel exercises. Other self-directed treatments for incontinence can include abstaining from alcohol and drinking enough water

What is BHRT?

If self-directed alternative treatments for perimenopause are not making enough of an impact, we invite you to consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT offers a natural way for women to regain their youthful vitality through supplementing their hormone deficiencies. BioTE Medical offers BHRT in pellet form which administers a consistent dose of hormones to the body.
