Perimenopause San Diego

Perimenopause begins several years before menopause and occurs due to your ovaries producing less estrogen. During this time of your life, you may have menopausal symptoms but continue to have menstrual cycles although they may be irregular. Perimenopausal symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, mood swings, depression, irritability, fatigue, headaches, joint and muscle pain, decreased libido (sex drive), and vaginal dryness. The symptoms can be quite severe affecting your daily quality of life. However, you do not need to wait until you reach menopause (no periods for a year) before you can treat the perimenopause symptoms and restore quality of life.
