Navigating Peri-Menopause: A Path to Serenity

Hello, I'm Carolyn Johnson, NP, and at Serenity NP, I often encounter questions from women about the signs of perimenopause and how to navigate this transformative phase. Perimenopause, marked by hormonal fluctuations leading to the cessation of menstruation, can bring about a myriad of symptoms, both physical and emotional. Understanding these signs and knowing when you're experiencing perimenopause is crucial for embarking on this journey with grace and empowerment. Today, let's delve into the signs of perimenopause and how seeking support from professionals like myself can make this transition smoother.

Recognizing the Signs:

Have you ever wondered what are the signs of perimenopause? How do you know if you’re going through perimenopause? These are common questions I encounter at Serenity NP. The truth is, perimenopause manifests differently in each woman, making it challenging to pinpoint. However, there are common symptoms to watch out for:

  1. Brain Fog: Many women experience cognitive changes during perimenopause, such as difficulty with memory, concentration, and word recall.

  2. Loss of Libido: Fluctuating hormones can lead to a decline in sexual desire, affecting intimacy and relationships.

  3. Fatigue and Insomnia: Sleep disturbances are prevalent during perimenopause, with women experiencing either difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, leading to persistent fatigue.

  4. Emotional Changes: Mood swings, irritability, and anxiety are common companions during this transition, affecting mental well-being.
