You Can Ease Perimenopause Symptoms

Last month I wrote about my hot flashes and brain freeze! The perimenopause symptoms were wreaking havoc on my week and I was totally over it. Being in this holding pattern between perimenopause and menopause is a big pain! I am ready for all of it to be over and done with. I’ve partnered with Icon Undies to bring you this post to share my tips for dealing with perimenopausal symptoms.

Are You Experiencing Perimenopause Symptoms?

Perimenopause typically refers to the period of time during which a woman’s body is starting to see a decrease in estrogen levels. Your body is prepping itself to enter menopause. While this stage of life may not always be fun and games, it too shall pass!

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Hot Flashes
  • Bladder Leaks
  • Weight Gain
  • Irregular Periods
  • Fatigue
  • Night Sweats
  • Sleep Problems

These are just a few of the Perimenopause symptoms I’ve been experiencing on and off over the last several years. Did you know that Perimenopause symptoms can last for years before you actually reach the menopause stage?  Our bodies are fabulous machines, even if we don’t always feel like it! We need to embrace this stage of life and continue living. Don’t let the symptoms of Perimenopause hold you back.

 Don’t Let Perimenopause Symptoms Hold You Back

No matter what phase of life my body and I are in, I am going to choose to have fun and go with the flow. For those pesky hot flashes, I just ensure I am never far from a fan. When I go to sleep the less clothing the better!

For the irregular periods and bladder leaks, I am trying out these Icon Undies! They come in several styles and are best for light or moderate leaking. I chose the moderate solution. This 50-year-old body that birthed three babies needs all the help it can get. They are real underwear. No bulky pads. Machine washable. Four layers that protect you from wetness, odor, and leaks. So far, so good! I can’t wait to get a few more pairs for travel and those new adventures I’ll be planning over the next year.

For the weight gain and fatigue, I am committed to eating as healthy as possible. The number on the scale isn’t defining me.

Sleep problems and night sweats are being addressed with Essential Oils. Clary Calm and Lavender are always in a diffuser beside my bed.

50 is my year of change. I am going to do the things that make me happy. Perimenopause symptoms aren’t keeping me from trying new things and having fun!
