You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
HOW IS PERIMENOPAUSE DIFFERENT THAN MENOPAUSE?
Perimenopause is the first stage in this process and can start eight to 10 years before menopause. Menopause is the point when a woman no longer has menstrual periods for at least 12 months. Right before you transition into menopause, there is a further drop in estrogen, and you may start to experience more changes.
IS “BRAIN FOG” A REAL SYMPTOM?
As many as 2/3 of women experience “brain fog” or lack of focus. It’s temporary and will pass. Getting enough sleep and exercise and eating a healthy diet can help maintain and improve memory.
WILL MENOPAUSE MAKE SEX PAINFUL?
Your hormones fluctuate during menopause which can lead to vaginal dryness which in turn can cause pain during sex. Try vaginal lubricants for relief. If that is not working, reach out to your ob-gyn. Don’t be resigned to abstinence after menopause - there are solutions! Regular sexual activity or vaginal stimulation — with or without a partner — also helps maintain healthy vaginal tissue.
I'M HAVING TROUBLE SLEEPING, WHAT CAN I DO?
Sometimes, improved sleep can occur just from lifestyle changes, including exercise, limiting screen time, including exercise, limiting screen time near bedtime, practicing good sleep hygiene by keeping the bedroom dark and cool, and avoiding large meals and alcohol before bed (and caffeine after noon). You can also promote relaxation before bed with warm caffeine-free drinks, a hot bath/shower, meditating or light yoga. As always you can talk to your trusted health or medical professional about other options.
HOW LONG DOES MENOPAUSE LAST?
The average length of menopause is 4 years, but it can be as short as a few months or as long as 10 years.
CAN I GET PREGNANT WHEN I AM PERIMENOPAUSAL?
Until you actually go into menopause, throughout the time you are perimenopausal, you are still ovulating (even if only sporadically), so you can still get pregnant. If you do not want to become pregnant and are sexually active, you should use some form of birth control until you are in menopause.
