Natural Remedies for Perimenopause

Perimenopause is the period prior to menopause. You may still be having periods, but you are also developing some symptoms common to menopause, such as hot flashes. Perimenopause symptoms and menopause symptoms are often essentially the same. Since perimenopause may continue for a number of years, many women look for ways to manage their symptoms.

A woman in perimenopause may experience hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, depression, weight gain and mood swings. These symptoms result from fluctuating hormone levels, as estrogen production gradually drops and the ratio of estrogen and progesterone in the system change. Although progesterone levels are not necessarily higher during perimenopause, the increased dominance of progesterone compared to estrogen can cause some similar symptoms to pregnancy, such as drowsiness or changes in libido. During perimenopause, women may also become more susceptible to vaginal or urinary tract infections.
