One-Third Of Perimenopausal Women Suffer From Insomnia, Study Finds.

Dr. Fox responds to the following article:
Perimenopause is the timeframe from the onset of ANY decreased hormone symptoms until actual menopause which for most women would be about 8-9 years and on average would begin about age 43 or so.  We see some patients as young as 30-33 that are suffering these symptoms, especially in the high exercise, high stress, and or endometriosis groups.  Finally others are coming full circle back to the idea that significant life-altering symptoms occur due to hormone decline / absence.  These symptoms are immediately fixed with appropriate hormone therapy.  Therapy in the perimenopausal time frame is a little tricky because we can’t measure levels.  We have developed careful ways to monitor therapy to ensure that women are safely replaced.  Other symptoms in this time frame include, accelerated skin wrinkling, gray hair, fatigue, headaches, mood changes, bloating, memory loss, attention problems, frequent urination, urgency to urinate, vaginal dryness, night sweats, etc.  We can help with all these symptoms.
