Why do I feel this way? Is it menopause?

Most women aren’t aware that the definition of menopause is centered around one’s menstrual cycle and is loosely defined as a natural cessation of the menstrual cycle for 12 consecutive months.  Hormone fluctuations can begin years before menopause and can lead to many troublesome symptoms. Many of these symptoms are assumed to be associated with normal aging or can be mistaken for other syndromes, making it difficult to determine what is “normal” and what isn’t when our bodies are preparing for menopause. To make the situation even more complicated, there are some women who appear to transition from their reproductive years to menopause seamlessly without any bothersome symptoms.

If you are bothered by symptoms that may be due to peri-menopause, the symptomatic years prior to menopause, or by menopause, you should discuss your options with your physician. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) therapy isn’t for everyone, but for those who have symptoms that interfere with their daily lives and prevent them from being at their very best, it can truly be life changing.
