Having Hot Flashes? | How to Recognize Perimenopause Symptoms

Have you recently found yourself struck by a sudden heat wave? For many women in their mid to late 40s this could be a tell tale sign that perimenopause has finally arrived. However, are you wondering if these hot flashes have to do with perimenopause or are simply coincidental?  First, consider if you have any of the other symptoms of perimenopause:

  • Mood changes including anxiety and depression
  • Night Sweats
  • Premenstrual-like symptoms
  • Lower energy levels
  • Decreased libido

These and other perimenopause symptoms may alert you to the fact that menopause is on the horizon.

 

Menopause does signal a new chapter in your life and some women find that freeing and even invigorating. But during the process, the changing hormone levels that bring on perimenopause symptoms can leave you feeling out of control.

 

Dr. Marina Rose uses a Functional Medicine approach to help women near the city of San Jose, CA with perimenopause symptoms as well as other challenging health issues.

Perimenopause symptoms are caused by complex shifts in the balance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels as well as adrenal and thyroid hormones. Dr. Christiane Northrup explains, “Estrogen is often the last hormone to decline, but is the hormone that is traditionally associated with menopausal symptoms.”  This is why simply adding estrogen in a pill, patch or cream is not enough for many women.
