Perimenopause Symptoms and Your Hair | What You can Do

Are perimenopause symptoms making you want to pull your hair out? Or is it just falling out on its own? Hair loss is one of the perimenopause symptoms that many women struggle with. If you’re losing your hair, you might be wondering why this is happening and if there’s anything you can do to stop it.


A variety of supplements, shampoos, lotions and potions are available to remedy hair loss, but most women find these to be little or no help. Hair loss as a perimenopause symptom happens because of the overall hormone imbalance, such as estrogen dominance, Dr. Christiane Northrup also notes.


Hormones are complex and it’s important to find out precisely which ones are out of balance. It could be that your “bad” estrogen (2-OH estrogen) is too high, or that you are creating too much testosterone or that your body doesn’t have the fatty acids it needs to make healthy hormones. All of these conditions can be addressed with appropriate supplements.


The key is finding out which imbalance you have, which is best done though a saliva test, not a blood test.


When your adrenals are overworked from too much stress, they  have trouble stepping in to help the ovaries out. Stress hormones produced in the adrenals share a precursor with sex hormones produced in the ovaries, which can lead to further hormone imbalance.


Dr. Marina Rose has helped women with perimenopause symptoms and people with other challenging, chronic health conditions in and around the city of San Francisco, CA.  Dr. Rose has found that hair loss in well can be easily stopped once the underlying cause is found.
