Common Questions and Answers about Allergies during perimenopause


Avatar f tn can be determined only retroactively). During perimenopause, many women find that they undergo symptoms of hormonal fluctuation, such as hot flashes, that cause them to seek medical advice. Mood changes, insomnia, fatigue, memory problems. Perimenopause is a natural stage of life, not a disease or a disorder, and therefore it does not automatically require any kind of treatment.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your response. If I may ask -- do you mean once you were menopausal (ie no periods), or during perimenopause? Has it gotten any better? Do you think there's any point in getting allergy tests? I had tests done about 4 years ago and was surprised to find how many grasses and trees I was allergic to (formerly, it was just cats).
Avatar n tn Hi all, Perhaps someone here has been experiencing my symptoms and could shed some light on what's going on in my body. I'm 37 years old, never been pregnant and never used the pill. I've been having ovulation pain for the last 3 years or so - 2/3 days of cramping in mid cycle and then again just before my period started. I thought this might mean I'm perimenopausal, since change is the cycle may precede menopause by several years.
Avatar f tn I'm 44 and have been very irregular with my periods for the last few years. I'm on the pill (Yaz) and never miss any. I'm still irregular on the pill even though my GYN put me on it to try and regulate me. I sometimes get my period during the "active" pills and not during the "inactive" pills. My cycle would last anywhere from 3 days to 14 days and would be very light to severe. The last day of my last period was May 1st. I haven't had a period since then.
Avatar f tn My own experience is very similar to what you have described, I am 52 and believe that I have been in perimenopause for years and years and...... I had very erratic periods and could never predict when one would arrive it could be anywhere from 10 days after the last one to about 3 weeks. Sometimes the 'period' was hardly anything more than a bit of spotting, on other occasions I would flood and didn't leave the house as it was so heavy that my clothes would be soaked through.
Avatar f tn I think that I am into my first year of Perimenopause that I have experiences with all Symptoms. Did anyone like me as the first year going through it? It seems aging has its price. I would like to exchange notes with people like me so perhaps we could share better tips to deal with it together. As Perimenopause may cause bone lost so I am trying to add in some Vitamin, did anyone take some Vitaman to prevent bone lost?
Avatar n tn I decided to start using natural progesterone cream because I was having symptoms of low progesterone, or estrogen dominance. I was hoping it would sooner or later address some issues I was having with allergies. Although I haven't used it for very long and my allergies haven't improved yet, what I have noticed is that I am somewhat constipated whereas before this was not a issue. Has anyone had this problem while using progesterone cream and does it sort itself out in time?
1398693 tn?1343684738 I've been getting major cramps since I've started perimenopause I saw a midwife ( no gynocologysts was avalible ) about it and I was fobbed off and I was told to take ibuprofen and I told her that I've tried that along with everything on the market and I was told to take ibuprofen before I get my monthly and to come back in 9 mos. Since I can't get help from a doctor ( or anybody else in the medical community ) does anyone have any ideas of how I can stop this pain?

Avatar n tn About 65 to 75 percent of women experience hot flashes during perimenopause. Their intensity, duration and frequency vary. Sleep problems are often due to hot flashes or night sweats, but sometimes sleep becomes erratic even without them. Mood changes. Some women experience mood swings, irritability or depression during perimenopause, but the cause of these symptoms may be sleep disruption or other menopausal symptoms rather than the hormonal changes of menopause.
Avatar f tn Hi, you can certainly get more sensitive/develop allergies to food or things later in life... I don't know how old you are exactly but certainly around perimenopause my skin started to change & I am even super sensitive to my husband's beard now...(Been married almost 30 years & he has always had a beard) I also have developed intolerances, allergies to certain foods later in life...
Avatar f tn Anxiety can indeed be a "symptom" of perimenopause, and is, actually, very common. During this time, our hormones are beginning to get a bit out of whack, and often times, anxiety is the result. Your OB/GYN can tell you, with a simple blood test, if you are starting perimenopause. This would be an excellent time to discuss the symptoms you are feeing and ways to deal with them. There are options out there to lessen the side effects of both perimenopause and menopause.
577395 tn?1277401364 Not unusual for your age. Cycles and periods scan run the gamut during perimenopause with bleeding being more frequent than not in some women. Lab work is not helpful since levels can swing from menopause to reproductive during this transition which can last years. Unfortunately, many women are lured into having a hysterectomy or endometrial ablation that causes many more problems than these procedures solve.
Avatar m tn However, if you are in perimenopause you absolutely can become pregnant, because you are still ovulating and getting a period, even though your periods may be very irregular. If you have not had a period in 2yrs, my guess would be the likelihood of becoming pregnant would not happen.
Avatar f tn Hello i was just wondering if anyone on the forum has experience inner body vibrations during the perimenopause stage which I an currently in. During this phase I have suffererd with some severe symptoms being thousands of eptopic beats per day in which I have been medically checked for and so far everything is normal. And now the body vibrations more noticeable during the night time when awoken from sleep which has been a common occurrence for me during this time.
Avatar f tn at 37 yrs old as well. They tell me it is not perimenopause. I freeze during the day, I run a space heater at work during the summer when the guys have it at 74; I just get cold easy during the day, but get "night sweats" off & on during the night. I too had graves/hyper & had RAI & TT done. That was 18yrs ago. If you want my opinion I think the RAI messed me up...but I am only saying this for myself....
Avatar f tn During perimenopaus for a pretty healthy slightly overweight (28 BMI) woman who exercises daily is there any reason that during my cycles about a week prior to when I start my period that I have very strong or hard heartbeats and palpitations along with elevated anxiety? I have relatively no risk for heart disease, no family history and no high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or anything else that might raise my risk. I'm just wondering if I should be concerned.
Avatar f tn ve been going through perimenopause but no doctor have admitted that these symptoms could be related to perimenopause.
Avatar f tn s it declines more rapidly until it ceases. During perimenopause our hormone levels (Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone) decrease, and ovulation slowly begins to come to an end... If you're interested in becoming pregnant, my advice would be to start keeping track of your ovulation and menstrual cycles now. Also consult your Ob/Gyn if you have any concerns. The healthier and better shape you're in will definitely influence any possible pregnancy and transition into menopause...
Avatar n tn I have no allergies to my knowledge and do not have worms or any reason to believe I am infected with a parasite. My question is this; what is a reasonable amount of time before I recheck a CBC to find out if the eosinophils have calmed down? I have other vague symptoms that can all be attributed to other things. I don't want to overreact and pursue a lengthy and costly workup again. Leukemia continues to pop up on the differential.
Avatar f tn t function after 3 pm every day, my muscles kill and I have the hardest time getting to the gym now when three weeks ago I was on a schedule of two hours a day at the gym. Does anyone have really heavy periods, they say you can get these symptoms during perimenopause? Does anyone have the muscle fatigue or pressure headaches, does anyone have pain in their rib area? It have all these aches and pains and just want some type of diagnosis. Thanks for any help you can give me!!

Avatar n tn I'm not sure that we actually get a fever during hot flushes. I have not taken my own temperature during one but, I'd say that if you've got a steady body temp of 100 to 101, there's something else at stake here rather than hot flushes. More often than not, a hot flush can leave you feeling drenched with sweat and exhausted and you can get "chills" after them because we're usually wet from sweating.
