Perimenopause & Beyond

Perimenopause & Beyond

The practitioners of Women’s Birth and Wellness Center care for women in all stages of life, including perimenopause and beyond. You need the same thoughtful guidance and care that you received during childbearing as you move through the next stage of life.

What to Expect

This natural transition from the reproductive years to the end of monthly cycles often begins in the forties and ends in the early fifties, but may start earlier or continue until the sixties. While perimenopause is a normal change of life as the functioning of the ovaries decreases, every woman is affected differently. Up to 20% of women may have significant discomforts that require support and/or medical treatment. At WBWC, you will be educated about these changes and cared for with respect, helping you find the path that works for you, whether it’s nutrition changes, herbal or homeopathic remedies, or hormone therapy.

Postmenopause

After no cycles for one year, estrogen and progesterone, the reproductive hormones which are no longer needed for childbearing, have declined to low, steady levels. Most women will spend the final third of their life in postmenopause. WBWC will continue to help you through these years with attention to physical, mental, personal, interpersonal, and cultural issues.
