Navigating Menopause and Perimenopause: Understanding the Transition

Menopause and perimenopause are natural stages in a woman’s life that mark the end of her reproductive years. While these transitions are a normal part of aging, they can bring about a range of physical and emotional changes. At FemCare OB/GYN, we specialize in providing expert care and support for women during this important phase of life.

Early Signs and Symptoms

Perimenopause, also known as the menopausal transition, typically begins several years before menopause. During this time, a woman’s ovaries gradually produce less estrogen, leading to irregular menstrual cycles and other symptoms. Common signs and symptoms of perimenopause and menopause include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep disturbancesM
  • ood changes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Changes in libido
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and SottoPelle

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a common treatment option for managing the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. HRT involves replacing the hormones (estrogen and sometimes progesterone) that the body no longer produces in adequate amounts. This can help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.

At FemCare OB/GYN, we offer SottoPelle as a form of hormone replacement therapy. SottoPelle involves the insertion of bioidentical hormone pellets under the skin, which release hormones into the bloodstream as needed. This method provides a consistent level of hormones and can be an effective treatment option for managing menopausal symptoms.

Gynecology is the field of medicine that deals extensively with female reproductive health. Unlike obstetrics that takes care of pregnant women, gynecology usually treats women who are not pregnant. Gynecology comprises examinations, tests, and procedures that involve the female reproductive organs – vagina, ovaries, uterus, as well as the breasts.
