Treatments for Perimenopause

Your Treatment Begins Here

If you are 39 to 45 and your hormone levels start to fluctuate, it may be perimenopause, which is the time leading up to your last period. Many women in perimenopause experience a drop in energy levels, trouble sleeping, mood changes and breast pain.

A Spectrum Health midlife and menopause specialist will help you better understand what’s happening to your body. We can recommend proven treatments that specifically address your symptoms. Treatment may include changes to your diet, increased exercise and hormone replacement therapy. Learn more about perimenopause treatments here.
