Peri-menopause

The peri-menopause can last for 10 years or more and is the transition phase to the menopause. Women can experience symptoms from 35 years of age, however the majority begin to notice change from their mid-forties.  During this time their hormones fluctuate and these changes are responsible for an array of symptoms which can have a significant impact on both their physical and emotional wellbeing.

 

Common symptoms include:
  • Irregular periods

  • Changes in mood including anxiety, anger and irritability which can fluctuate

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia

  • Heart palpitations

  • Problems with memory

  • Hot Flushes

  • Night sweats

  • Aches and painful joints

  • Headaches

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Dry, itchy skin

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Low Libido

As a woman moves through each phase of menopause, hormone levels can fluctuate significantly, however, these vital hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone remain important for bones, vaginal health, skin, brain function and cardiovascular health. It is therefore important to effectively balance and replenish these hormones in order to maintain a woman’s health, energy, mood and brain function.

 

As each woman is unique, the changes happening in her body at that specific time will be different from the next. It is therefore important to provide a bespoke treatment plan specifically tailored to her own hormone imbalance and needs. 

 

At The Hormone Health Clinic, a detailed consultation, to determine how the hormonal changes are impacting on you, is combined with appropriate blood tests. This allows a individualised treatment plan to be made with the aim of relieving you of the symptoms impacting on your life.
