In our latest Highgate Health Blog, Dr Gidon Lieberman looks at what early menopause is, why it might come about, symptoms and treatments available.
The ‘perimenopause’ refers to the time leading to the very last period, which can last from a few months to years. Many women experience symptoms during this time, mainly due to the changing levels of circulating hormones like oestrogen. These are variable from person to person, and the most typical symptoms include hot flushes, emotional instability including low mood and anxiety, insomnia and trouble sleeping. While it is a good idea to discuss any problems like this with your GP or specialist, here are 5 great strategies used to combat menopausal symptoms and get you back to enjoying life
