Are you noticing (peri)menopausal symptoms such as …
Unexplained crushing fatigue can be a symptom of perimenopause. As oestrogen levels drop during this time our bodies struggle to utilise energy effectively and as a result we can feel as if everything we do is like walking through treacle, and simply exhausting.
The hormonal shifts, occurring from premenopause through to postmenopause, often contribute to heavier periods. This can be a scary experience, particularly when you expect your periods to stop slowly and gradually.
Aching from head to toe
Joint pain is a common occurrence, which feels like a stiffness, or even pain when stepping down and a lack of mobility. Declining hormones affect joint lubrication.
“You can’t manage what you don’t understand”. The mental chaos and physical confusion that frequently accompanies perimenopause needs to be acknowledged and appropriately managed, before your friendships and other relationships come under duress.
Anxiety or sadness
typical perimenopause symptoms, like anxiety, depression and forgetfulness, often occur near the beginning of the transition toward menopause day. This can be several years before periods become noticeably irregular.
Isolation & Loneliness
The secondary symptoms and consequences are much easier to navigate when you have some physical and emotional strategies in place. Each day on the journey is different. You may wish to take the journey alone, but you don’t need to feel lonely and isolated at the same time.
Why work with a Menopause Doula?
Menopause is so much more than just your periods stopping! A knowledgeable Menopause Doula, with personal experience of menopausing, can enable you to make your own transition calmer and confident.
Menopausing (menopause transition, also known as perimenopause) is a huge hormonal shift, over quite a significant time. You could compare it to puberty in reverse.
Many people do NOT realise that the health care choices you make while menopausing impact your postmenopause years more than you can possibly imagine.
My role is to help you navigate the health challenges that menopausing may be creating for you RIGHT NOW, and give you the knowledge to help you protect yourself in the future.
What are those options and how will you know when to make new choices?
