Menopause or Hormonal Imbalances

Menopause or Hormonal Imbalances

Perimenopause and menopause are characterized by fluctuations of estrogen, the primary female hormone which in most cases tapers down over time to very low levels. Progesterone and testosterone production fluctuate during these years as well. Hormonal imbalances are common and can lead to hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, bone loss, vaginal dryness, lack of libido and mood swings.

Female Hormonal Phases: 

Perimenopause

This phase varies from woman to woman but typically begins in the forties age range and can last for many years. The first sign of perimenopause may be an irregular menstrual cycle as the ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, finally leading to menopause. An accelerated decline in estrogen occurs during the last 1-2 years of this phase. During this time, a woman may still get pregnant.

Common symptoms:

  • Changes in periods
  • Bloating
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Changes in libido
  • increased PMS symptoms
  • Breast tenderness
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety

Menopause

The 12-month mark after a woman’s final period initiates her menopause period. The average age of menopause is 51, but there is a broad range of when this normally occurs from the mid-forties to mid-fifties. This time of life is a transitional period when the ovaries stop releasing eggs.

Common symptoms:

  • Chills
  • Hot flashes
  • Headaches
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Painful sex
  • Vaginal dryness and soreness, dry skin, and mouth
  • Mood swings
  • Racing heart
  • Sweating
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Water retention

Menopause symptoms can last for years and may significantly impact the quality of life.

Post menopause

Begins after a woman has transitioned through menopause, and although symptoms can ease, she is at greater risk for many health conditions that affect her bones and heart.

Tips for Hot Flashes:

Dress in layers

Sip on ice water when hot flash begins

Keep a cold pack or ice on hand

Rub cooling peppermint oil on your shoulders, chest or wrists

Use a fan, air conditioner or a swamp cooler
