Medical Treatment For Perimenopause Symptoms

All women are different, and each woman's perimenopause symptoms are different. This is an especially important time to work with a doctor you trust and in whom you can talk to easily and confidentially. You and your doctor are partners in caring for your health, both viewing perimenopause not as a disease, but as a transition from one phase of life into another.

Should you look into other complementary therapies, it is important to let your care provider know. In a recent survey of family practitioners and their patients, only about half (53%) of the patients told their doctors that they were looking into alternative treatment. The common reason given was fear of disapproval from the physician. If you do choose alternative treatment, go into it with your physician's opinion as part of your overall decision making process.

Medical Treatment Choices

The lifestyle changes discussed in the previous section may not help enough with the hot flashes, night sweats and irregular bleeding you experience. Be wary of over-the-counter treatments that will supposedly regulate your hormones. While they may be quite helpful, they should be monitored, as they can create an imbalance on their own.

Get second opinions on anything you are considering as treatment for perimenopause, from over the counter remedies to surgery. You should always be as informed as possible regarding your body and your health.
