Experts are not entirely sure why perimenopause increases women’s risk for depression. Many believe that a combination of hormone fluctuations and external changes in one’s life can contribute to this disorder. As individuals reach middle age, changes in your appearance, energy and sexuality can all cause emotional distress.

 

There are a number of side effects from menopausal depression. These can include: 

  • Fatigue
  • Restlessness 
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Changes in appetite
  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt
  • Decreased pleasure in activities
  • Thoughts of suicide

 

Although some may experience one or more of these symptoms temporarily, depression is typically defined as prolonged periods of experiencing some of these symptoms. 

 

Treatment for Menopausal Depression

Luckily, if you suffer from this debilitating disorder, there is hope! Our BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women can help you feel like yourself again!

 

BHRT helps treat depression by balancing your hormones. This reduces the hormone fluctuations that contribute to mood swings and helps improve your overall wellbeing.
