Perimenopause refers to the period of time before full-blown menopause. Your menstruation (period) has not actually stopped, but changes are happening – both physically and emotionally – and you should consult a gynecologist to determine your estrogen levels and where you are in this cycle.
Jefferson gynecologists are experts in helping women cope with all of the changes that occur during perimenopause.
The Marcus Institute of Integrative Health also has a Women's Health Program that provides specialized treatments for menopause, gynecologic health, osteoporosis and a range of other physical and emotional health issues. This Program offers advanced medical care with supportive, complementary therapies to maximize the health and well-being of every woman.
