Perimenopause Symptoms Hormone Optimization

perimenopause symptomsPerimenopause symptoms can occur as we experience a decrease in the hormone levels.  Some women can have heavy menses and may experience clots with their menses. Those hormones control and direct your menstrual cycle, libido, and energy to enjoy life. These hormones also have a very big impact on aging, and weight gain, Plus some women have foggy mind, low mood, irritability, anger issues, mood swings, and lack of libido . As these perimenopausal signs and symptoms are an indication that a hormone imbalance has occurred. When these hormones levels change, you can experience night sweats and hot flashes. Often it can be difficult to get to sleep and stay asleep. When your sleep is disrupted, you don’t feel rested in the morning. Or do not feel ready or have the energy to start the day.

What does perimenopause mean?

The Perimenopausal period includes the time before your menses has stopped for a year and when your periods become irregular. Perimenopause symptoms can occur in women who have gone through the childbearing years. Or are starting to experience irregular periods in their 40’s and 50’s. Our hormones tell the cells what to do throughout the day and night. When these hormone levels start to drop in perimenopause its the body’s way of communicating that here is a hormone imbalance.
