Menopause and Perimenopause Specialist in Roseville, CA

Menopause marks a natural phase in a woman's life that typically occurs between the ages of 40 and 55. During this transition, the ovaries gradually decrease their production of estrogen and progesterone, leading to the cessation of menstruation and the end of fertility.

When Can Menopause Be Diagnosed? 

Menopause is usually confirmed when there is no menstrual period for 12 consecutive months and the level of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is above 50 mIU/mL. Some women may experience menopause as early as their late 30s, while others may enter it in their 60s. On average, menopause begins around the age of 52. When menopause occurs before the age of 40, it is considered premature menopause.

Medically induced menopause can also occur due to surgical removal of the ovaries, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. While menopausal symptoms typically diminish within 2 to 5 years for most women, it can take more than 10 years for others. It's important to note that the effects of declining hormone levels continue beyond the resolution of symptoms.

Understanding Perimenopause

Hormonal changes in women's bodies begin in their mid to late 30s. Perimenopause refers to the transitional period leading up to menopause, which typically spans 2 to 10 years before menopause begins. During perimenopause, hormone levels, including progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone, decline. These fluctuating and declining hormone levels can cause changes in the menstrual cycle, such as irregularity or variations in flow, and can disrupt sleep, leading to sleepless nights.

Eventually, progesterone and estrogen levels drop to the point where the menstrual cycle stops, and menopause commences. It is this hormonal decline that gives rise to many of the well-known physical and emotional symptoms associated with perimenopause and menopause. The symptoms can vary from person to person, ranging from subtle to pronounced, and they can appear gradually or abruptly.

Great customer service, Professional staff, knowledgeable, and Friendly - I am always welcomed with a smile. After I started visiting, I started to learn more about what I was missing/what levels were low and how we could get them back up.

Since getting the B12 shot I feel AMAZING!

Since getting the B12 shot I feel AMAZING! I used to start getting really tired around 2ish 3 o"clock and since the shot I don't feel tired anymore around that time! So far I got the shot twice and I feel great every day!

The staff is amazing and super nice

The staff is amazing and super nice. I don't love local to the office so when I do go in it's nice to be in and out of the office quickly. Easy to get next day appointments if need be.I love the fact that if I don't want to I don't have to come in weekly to pick up my next dose.Monthly deals also make it affordable compared to other clinics.
