About Menopausal Care

Perimenopause and menopause are a natural part of a woman’s life cycle. Perimenopause is the years prior to menopause where the ovaries prepare to stop releasing eggs and reduce the amount of estrogen production. Once the ovaries no longer have eggs to release, menstruation stops, which is called menopause.

With this reduction in estrogen comes a multitude of perimenopausal symptoms that may interfere with daily life. Symptoms of perimenopause can include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Urinary incontinence treatment
  • Irregular periods
  • Vaginal dryness

In addition to uncomfortable symptoms, the reduction in estrogen associated with menopause can have a long-term effect on your health. Without hormone replacement therapy, menopause can increase your risk for:

  • Heart attack
  • Osteoporosis
  • Vision problems including cataracts and macular degeneration

Hormone replacement therapy

While perimenopause and menopause can’t be prevented, the symptoms can be controlled. One of the most common treatment methods is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Through hormone replacement therapy, synthetic forms of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone are used to mitigate symptoms.

Hormone replacement therapy can reduce the risk of some long-term health problems such as bone loss, but can also increase the risks of certain cancers. Your gynecologist will discuss the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy to decide what will work best for you.

Lifestyle changes for perimenopause and menopause

In addition to hormone replacement therapy, your gynecologist may suggest some lifestyle changes to reduce perimenopause and menopause symptoms. These may include:

  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Over-the-counter remedies for specific symptoms
  • Complementary medicine such as acupuncture and massage

Lee Health's Integrative Medicine Program helps women find more holistic ways to manage perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
