Perimenopause in Fountain Hills, AZ

Perimenopause in Fountain Hills, AZ is the result of fluctuating hormones as a woman ages.  This can start as early as mid-thirties (especially if a woman started having children young); although most women recognize their symptoms as being related to perimenopause until their mid-forties.  By this time, hormone levels have depleted so much that symptoms are rearing and unmistakably related to Perimenopause in Fountain Hills, AZ. 

                                                             

The most common and unmistakable symptoms of Perimenopause in Fountain Hills, AZ include night sweats or hot flashes, irregular periods, heavier periods and worsening premenstrual syndrome, and mood swings.  However, many common early symptoms can be overlooked; such as, fatigue, breast tenderness, lower sex drive, vaginal dryness & discomfort during sex, urine leakage when coughing or sneezing, urinary urgency and frequency (especially at night), difficulty losing or maintaining weight, and difficulty sleeping.  These common earlier symptoms are the symptoms women often tend to overlook in their thirties.  They know that something is just not quite right, but they can’t seem to put their finger on it.

                                               

There are many treatment options for perimenopause, including enhancing your own general well-being:

  • Eat a well-balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Get regular exercise (at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week)
  • Practice good sleep hygiene (go to bed and wake up the same time every day)
  • Stop smoking
  • Limit alcohol consumption

If you’ve tried all of these, hormone optimization and balancing is another option.  There are many options available on the market, but we believe that bioidentical hormone optimization is the best option.  Bioidentical hormones are dosed individually for each patients’ specific needs, unlike traditional hormone options which are a one size fits none type dosing.  They are also made from natural soy products that mimic our own bodies hormones, not from horse urine like traditional synthetic hormones.  For these reasons, and many more, we believe that these are the best option we can give to patients to combat perimenopause symptoms.
