Menopause is a natural transition in a woman’s life that marks the end of her reproductive years. You’re considered to have reached menopause when you’ve gone 12 months without your period. Most women in the United States reach menopause around the age of 51.
However, you may experience many of the symptoms associated with menopause before you’ve officially stopped menstruating due to the fluctuations in your hormone levels. This time period, which may occur anytime in your 30s or 40s, is referred to as perimenopause.
Your menopause symptoms may vary in type and severity, and, as previously mentioned, may begin several months or years before you officially reach menopause.
Common symptoms of menopause include:
Before you reach menopause, you may also experience irregularity in your menstrual cycle.
While the severity of menopause symptoms varies from woman to woman, if you find that your symptoms are affecting your quality of life, the team at Rejuvenate Your Life can provide treatments to help relieve your symptoms and get you back to doing the things you love.
The team at Rejuvenate Your Life offers bioidentical hormone therapy to help restore hormone balance and help you get relief from your symptoms. Bioidentical hormones are a more natural form of hormone replacement that has the same chemical composition as the hormones found in your body.
Dr. Mejia is a certified BioTE® practitioner and uses the BioTE pellets to optimize hormone levels. The BioTE pellets are customized to meet your very specific hormonal needs so you get the most effective relief.
In addition to restoring your female hormones, Dr. Mejia may also suggest testosterone replacement. Like estrogen, your testosterone levels decrease when you reach menopause and can affect your sexual health. If your testosterone levels are below normal and you have a low libido, adding testosterone to your BioTE pellets may help.
For vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse, Rejuvenate Your Life is equipped with ThermiVa®, which is an advanced women’s wellness tool that uses radiofrequency energy to revitalize vaginal tissue to restore health and function.
