Wondering if you’re in perimenopause? Same girl, same… I’m 42 next week!
If you’re in your late 30s or early 40s, you’re not imagining things. Something IS changing with your brain, body, and hormones!
Do you have any of these symptoms?
- Irregular periods or skipped period
- Periods that are heavier or lighter than usual
- Vaginal dryness and discomfort during sex
- Urinary urgency
- Mood changes
- Vaginal and bladder problems
- Changing cholesterol levels
Are you in perimenopause?
This change isn’t a single event, but a process called perimenopause, and I feel like it’s not talked about enough. If anything, women (myself included) don’t fully understand what happens to their bodies and often suffer through symptoms with little help from their doctors.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!!
First, please know that many of the symptoms are temporary and perimenopause is a sequence of events.
- Start losing progesterone
- High and fluctuating estrogen
- Lower estrogen
- Possible insulin resistance (and weight gain)
How to make the transition easier
Stop scrolling and go the F to sleep
Keep blood sugar balanced by eating protein and fiber with every meal
Get daily movement and sunshine
Support your gut and liver by consuming caffeine and alcohol in moderation
Supplement with progesterone
Run a comprehensive hormone jutest
On average, the perimenopause transition takes about 7 years, so it’s important to get your ducks in a row to make sure you feel your best and don’t suffer with symptoms!
