Menopause and Perimenopause in Women:

Menopause is a condition that every healthy woman will experience as she reaches middle age, typically between the ages of 35-59. It is a natural, gradual process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and her lifetime supply of eggs becomes depleted, meaning a full year has passed since her last menstrual cycle. Women going through menopause often experience a combination of some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats and/or cold flashes
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Sudden tears
  • Loss of libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Urinary urgency
  • Inability to sleep through the night
  • Clammy skin
  • Depression
  • Weight gain

 

Perimenopause is the word that describes the time when a woman’s body transitions from her fertile, child-bearing years into middle age. During this natural transition, the body undergoes biologic changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production.

Every woman’s experience is different, but common symptoms of perimenopause include:

  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Weight gain

 

Menopause treatments focus on relieving your signs and symptoms and on preventing or lessening chronic conditions that may occur with ageing.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy using Estrogen therapy remains, by far, the most effective treatment option for relieving menopausal hot flashes. Depending on your personal and family medical history, your local Santa Monica Menopause doctor may recommend estrogen to provide symptom relief for you.
