Many women find their lives become increasingly difficult as they hit their mid-40s due to the onset of perimenopause. Which is unfortunate since this a key time of life when women are trying to reach the next level of their careers, their children are often entering adolescence and becoming a challenge, and some relationships are starting to fray. The hormonal changes women experience during perimenopause, such as fatigue, mood swings, difficulty concentrating, strange aches and pains, and inexplicable weight gain, do not help at all in conquering these challenges. Consider changing your life in Pasadena with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which can relieve all of your perimenopausal symptoms and let you get on with overcoming life’s challenges.
What is Perimenopause?
Although most women in Pasadena are aware that menopause happens around age fifty, when menstrual cycles cease and women become unable to conceive any additional children, most women are rather surprised to learn that menopause doesn’t happen all at once. For several years prior to menopause women experience gradually diminishing hormonal levels and random hormonal fluctuations as the ovaries slowly shut down, and these changes in hormone levels cause the unpleasant symptoms of perimenopause. Perimenopause lasts two to three years on average, but some women experience an onset of perimenopause ten years prior to menopause; that is a long time to suffer from brain fog and fatigue.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
The precursors of bioidentical hormones are isolated and purified from plant sources, such as yams and soy beans. Then, these plant hormone-like compounds are chemically modified in the laboratory to produce hormones that are identical in every way to the hormones women naturally produce. Bioidentical hormones are administered to perimenopausal women to replace the levels of their declining hormones in order to relieve all of the common perimenopausal symptoms. Bioidentical hormones can also be used after menopause to prevent conditions associated with hormone deficiencies such as osteoporosis.
