Here I am Suggesting ways to survive your perimenopausal days
The management depends on the symptoms, like a few may experience depression while some can have heavy bleeding. So the treatment modalities vary from person to person.
- Many women change their diet and exercise and just let this phase of life play out, while others prefer to correct problems medically or surgically.
- By changing lifestyle, what I mean is introducing exercise in your lifestyle, eating healthy, quit smoking, get enough sleep, avoid alcohol, reduce your weight and be fit, get enough calcium and multivitamin in our diet.
- In case you are experiencing heavy bleeding, you need to have iron supplements. Doctors can suggest birth control pills, IUDs that contain progesterone to eliminate the bleeding patterns, or minimally invasive surgical options such as endometrial ablation, which can reduce bleeding.
- If you are losing interest in sex, ask for counseling and advice. Try new and different stuff, go on dates, watch movies, and build interest.
- You can go for HRT for perimenopause symptoms. Estrogen and progesterone hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be used depending on the woman’s symptoms. Hormone therapies like Systemic estrogen therapy come in pill, skin patch, gel, or cream form and are the most effective treatment option for relieving perimenopausal and menopausal hot flashes and night sweats.
- If you are depressed, you can go for prescribed antidepressants. An antidepressant for managing hot flashes may be useful for women who can’t take estrogen for health reasons or for women who need an antidepressant for a mood disorder.
