How will I know if my body is producing less estrogen? How do I know if I’m in peri-menopause?


The symptoms that can start to happen around the time of menopause are:


Hot flashes

Night sweats

Difficulty sleeping

Frequent awakenings at night

Trouble concentrating

Worsening short-term memory

Feeling tired all the time

Bladder pain

Frequent urination

More frequent bladder infections

Vaginal dryness

Loss of sexual desire

Pain with sexual intercourse

Depression and mood swings


Feeling tense and nervous



Swelling of the hands or feet

Breast tenderness

Joint aches

Thinning hair

Palpitations (a sensation of fluttering in the chest or a sensation of a fast heart beat)

Chest pain with exercise

Increasing belly fat


The most effective treatment for these symptoms is estrogen.  Your physician can help you determine what tests should be done and if estrogen is appropriate for you.
