Finding Menopause Relief in all 3 Stages

Perimenopause

Many people don’t realize the menopause cycle begins so early. Around age 40 you may begin to notice some changes. Night sweats and mood swings plant you in the exam room and introduce you to the word “perimenopause.” Perimenopause is the beginning stage of menopause. In most women, it begins in the early 40s and can last 5-10 years. That’s a long time! Finding menopause relief for these annoying symptoms is crucial. In the early stages, you may find exercise gives relief. Get plenty of rest. Adopt meditation if you can. BioTE® pellets can be dosed in the right amounts depending on your bloodwork findings. BioTE® therapy is so easy to fit into your busy lifestyle. Pellets are inserted into the gluteal area and last for 3-4 months.

A Step Back: Why Your Body Changes

So, what’s the deal with menopause, anyway? As women, even though we are still considered childbearing age our reproductive cycle starts to slow down as we age. With that, hormones important for conception and childbearing begin to slow in production, too. Estrogen and progesterone are two biggies. Yes, they are important for baby making. But these hormones also regulate body temperature, weight, mood and energy. So, as these hormones become less plentiful you’ll notice changes to one or more of those areas.

Menopause

For most women, active menopause hits in the late 40s to early 50s. By now, you’ve become accustomed to some pesky symptoms. But, you may find them in full force in active menopause. In fact, many women find them completely unbearable. Hot flashes hit with no warning interrupting sleep. You stay fatigued. Extra weight sticks around despite more effort to lose it. Vaginal health can decrease, too. Dryness and atrophy can make sex painful. Reasons for these significant changes point back to hormonal imbalance. Year by year, as your body has moved through the menopause cycle production of estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone have dipped further. If you’re an existing BioTE® patient, during active menopause we can reassess your hormone levels and adjust your pellet therapy. Super simple! If you’re new to BioTE® we’ll order bloodwork and provide the exact dosing your body needs. Vaginal health can be further addressed through our innovative nonsurgical diVa® and diVaTyte®.
