Menopause Q & A
What are menopause and perimenopause?
Menopause is a natural process that all women go through typically once they reach their forties or fifties. Menopause is caused by the decreased production of estrogen and progesterone, which comes with the end of the menstrual cycle.
Once you go 12 months without a menstrual period, you’re considered to have reached menopause. The period preceding menopause when hormone levels start to decline, but you may still have periods is considered perimenopause.
Some of the symptoms of menopause may start to appear during perimenopause, such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood changes
- Decreased energy
- Vaginal discomfort
All women experience menopause and perimenopause differently. If your symptoms are bothersome, you may consider consulting the hormone specialists at Optimized Wellness.
When should I see my doctor about menopause?
Menopause is a natural biological transition that doesn’t require treatment. However, if your symptoms are severe or bothersome, a hormone specialist can certainly help you manage them.
You may choose to make an appointment at Optimized Wellness if you:
Have any questions or concerns
- Want to decrease your menopause symptoms
- Experience notable discomfort
- Are interested in natural ways to promote balance in your body
- Have an interest in preventive health care
Jordan Bernard, ARNP at Optimized Wellness collaborate with you to create an individualized, natural treatment plan for the years before, during, or after menopause.
Is there a treatment for menopause?
Menopause isn’t a medical condition that requires treatment. However, treatment is available at Optimized Wellness to make the transition through menopause easier and to address related health concerns.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a well-established treatment for menopausal symptoms. The providers at Optimized Wellness use hormone pellet therapy to replace some of the estrogen and progesterone in your system.
The pellets deliver a natural version of hormones at a steady, optimized rate, so you don’t experience a surge of hormones all at once. With replenished hormone levels, you should experience relief from some or all of your symptoms.
If you want relief from perimenopause or menopause symptoms, contact Optimized Wellness over the phone or request an appointment online to discuss your options.
