The term “premenopause” applies to the adolescent and adult stages of a woman’s life, and is the time when she can ovulate and become pregnant. A bit more specifically, a healthy woman is in premenopause from her first menstrual cycle until her final one.
If you did not know that a term like premenopause existed to describe what sounds like the typical child-bearing phase of a woman’s life you’re certainly not alone. In fact, many women don’t realize that, even during these prime years, hormone imbalances can occur and cause physical and emotional issues that could be considered premenopausal, which leads them toward remedies that just don’t seem to be working.
When You Just Don’t Feel Like You
Doctors commonly misdiagnose women in premenopause because hormone imbalances lead to symptoms that are also found in a number of illnesses.
- Feelings of depression, anxiety or lack of purpose
- Weight gain, even when your diet and exercise routines haven’t changed
- Swelling or tenderness around joints or your face
- Increased sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures
- Thinning hair or hair loss
- Missed periods, irregular periods or heavier than normal flow
The inability to tackle the real issue can be frustrating for women and even strain the relationship between a woman and her primary care physician. It makes you unsure, apprehensive, and unlike your usual self.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, and it feels like you’re getting nowhere in your current treatment efforts, premenopause hormone therapy at Balance Hormone Center in Norman could offer relief.
