PERIMENOPAUSE – THE STAGE LEADING UP TO MENOPAUSE

May 30, 2018 0 comment
  • Perimenopause is the transition stage lasting between 4 to 8 years (can be longer) until menopause
  • Your ovaries eventually become depleted in eggs and hormone production therefore starts to decline
  • It’s the decline of oestrogen which brings about menopause symptoms
  • Not all women experience all the symptoms of perimenopause to the same degree, and symptoms vary among women.
  • Your hormone levels will begin to fluctuate wildly
  • Periods may become irregular along with the flow and duration
  • Your libido can wane and vaginal dryness can make sex painful
  • You still get your period so pregnancy may be possible
  • There is no single test to diagnose perimenopause
  • There is no treatment available to stop menopause
  • It is important to understand your body to proactively manage these physiological changes
