Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms in Women in Perimenopause
The three phases of menopause (perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause) are brought on by hormonal imbalances that take place during the process of aging. However, even normal perimenopause symptoms can be stressful. Learn the normal perimenopause symptoms 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. 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. Some women experience minimal symptoms and discomfort when the production of their estrogen slows, while others may experience many unpleasant symptoms.
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, hot flashes, insomnia, pain with intercourse and incontinence. Perimenopause symptoms can cause a lot of discomfort, so trust BioTE Medical to help you navigate your way through menopause.
What are the Stages of Menopause?
There are three stages of menopause. These include:
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. Perimenopause include changes in menstrual cycle, trouble with incontinence, an increase in urinary tract infections (UTIs), decreased libido, depression and mood swings. Perimenopause symptoms may also include skin thinning, hair becoming brittle and a weakening of bone density.
What are Alternative Treatments of Perimenopause Symptoms?
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 controlling urination 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. If these treatments aren’t enough, the team at BioTE Medical can help provide relief from perimenopause symptoms.
