Understanding perimenopause

shutterstock 2051997719 While menopause and perimenopause are necessary, inevitable in a woman’s life, it doesn’t mean that these transitions need to be unpleasant. Drs. Kellyn Reilly, Holly Westmoreland, Raj Syal, and Jenna Everson are doctors of Woodlands OBGYN Associates who are here to help women get through these periods. One of the most misunderstood is that of perimenopause, which is essentially the actual transition TO menopause, when a woman’s period has been stopped for 12 months. 

Understanding perimenopause 

Many women believe that menopause is the transition from reproductive to nonreproductive years, but menopause is actually the point at which a woman has no longer mensurated for a twelve month period. Perimenopause is the transition period and is the point when women experience symptoms and issues such as hot flashes and changes in mood. During this time, women might also notice: 

  • Insomnia/fatigue
  • Skin changes/issues
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog/fuzzy thinking
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Night sweats
  • Changes in libido

Know that you don’t have to suffer 

Just because these transitions are normal doesn’t mean that patients have to suffer. We deal with women every day who are looking for ways to reduce these issues and restore their quality of life. At Woodlands OBGYN Associates, we know how important it is to feel your best, and we offer hormone therapy options for consideration. The primary cause of the symptoms is the dramatic shift in hormone levels. With hormone balance therapy, many women can keep these problems from impacting their daily lives and improve the way they feel overall. Our team works directly with women ready for a change!
