A woman in her 40s or 50s could likely be going through “the change.” The changes you are experiencing could be early signs of menopause. Book an appointment with Dr. Neera Bhatia to find out if you are in the early stages of menopause, also known as perimenopause. She will help relieve your perimenopause symptoms with hormone treatment at her San Antonio OBGYN clinic.
What Are the Signs of Menopause?
The most common signs of menopause are hot flashes, mood swings, and changing menstrual periods. Depression, headaches, insomnia, weight gain, and abdominal bloating are all signs of menopause as well. You may also experience changes with your vagina including vaginal dryness, discharge with a bad smell, and itchiness accompanied by rashy skin (pruritus).
We know these symptoms are uncomfortable and may affect your daily life. If you believe you have multiple signs of menopause, see San Antonio’s local OBGYN and HRT specialist Dr. Neera Bhatia. Book an appointment here to relieve your perimenopause symptoms.
When do Perimenopausal Symptoms Begin?
Women typically start perimenopause and begin experiencing symptoms of menopause in their 40s. Signs of menopause may start to appear up to 6 years before menstrual cycles completely stop.
Should I Seek Treatment for Perimenopausal Symptoms?
Yes, you should consult with a doctor like Dr. Bhatia who can help you through this difficult time in your life. She can guide you and alleviate your perimenopausal symptoms. During the perimenopause process, your body goes through many changes including inconsistent and reduced hormone levels. Being treated with hormone replacements (HRT), can help you feel and look younger while relieving your perimenopause symptoms.
