Perimenopause can be a rocky time of life for women. For many women, this life stage can last for up to ten years before the final onset of menopause. The disturbing symptoms can seriously impair quality of life and make it hard for women to concentrate on their careers, family, hobbies, and social life. However, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets can relieve these symptoms and change your life for the better.
What are Bio-Identical Hormones?
With bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets, the hormones are extracted from plants like soy and yams, and thus they are vegan and do not involve ethically troubling practices that obtain hormones from animals. Then, in the laboratory, they are converted into hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones women naturally make.
They are prepared as tiny pellets that can be inserted under the skin in order to release a steady, slow dose of hormones for weeks or months. Because the pellets are tiny, the woman cannot even feel their presence. In addition, the precise dose of hormones each woman needs can be easily adjusted by selecting the required number of pellets to inject.
What is Perimenopause?
Menopause is defined as a complete cessation of the menstrual cycle. After menopause, both estrogen and progesterone levels drop to a low, steady state. Throughout perimenopause, while the levels of these two hormones do gradually decline, they tend to fluctuate wildly, causing symptoms like:
- Hot flashes
- Aches and pains
- Inexplicable weight gain, particularly around the abdomen
- “Brain fog”
Most women find the fatigue and “brain fog” to be the most troublesome symptoms. “Brain fog” refers to a complex of symptoms affecting cognitive functioning, inability to concentrate or focus, memory problems, and mood swings. Many women are working towards promotions or trying to seriously advance their careers to the next level while perimenopause is going on, and “brain fog” can be very detrimental to these efforts.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy pellets can smooth out the hormone fluctuations and increase the overall amount of hormones, thus relieving unpleasant symptoms. It is essential to be tested for hormone levels before starting therapy and also to be regularly tested during therapy in order to precisely adjust the dose to suit each woman.
