Doctors find that when the topic of perimenopause enters a woman's life, many women worry about pregnancy.
They are concerned if they can still get pregnant, either because they would still like to have children or because they would like to make sure they don't accidentally get pregnant. Perimenopause and pregnancy are an interesting couple.
On the one hand, women are less likely to get pregnant because their periods tend to be irregular (due to hormonal imbalances), and on the other hand, they have a higher risk of having an unexpected pregnancy because they do not know when their pregnancy is. The hormones will suddenly cause the body to begin ovulating again.
The first situation posed by perimenopause and pregnancy, that of being less likely to get pregnant, can bother some women. It is particularly upsetting at this age when perimenopause can begin at age 35.
Sometimes women have not yet had the chance to have a child, and then their body goes into perimenopause. If you are in this situation, do not give up hope. Lots of women have gotten pregnant during their perimenopausal years, which means you can too!
If an irregular period is one of your symptoms, there are natural treatments you can try to regulate your period and increase your chances of getting pregnant. Usually, this treatment involves a change in diet and healthy exercise. Sometimes doctors prescribe eating or drinking soy products, since soy is a plant product that mimics estrogen.
Thanks to natural treatments, many women have been able to reduce their perimenopause symptoms and have a normal pregnancy. Some even claim that their symptoms have completely disappeared and the perimenopause problem has reversed.
If you still want to have a baby, make it clear to your doctors that this is part of your perimenopause goal and that they should be able to help you find a natural treatment that your body will respond to.
Then the opposite situation posed by perimenopause and pregnancy is that of not wanting to get pregnant, but being afraid that your period (and your ovulation) will be unpredictable.
The best way to tackle this problem is to try to regulate your periods. Again, natural treatments can work and give you a better chance of keeping track of your period, helping you prevent an unexpected pregnancy. If natural methods don't work, you can also try using low-dose birth control pills.
These pills, although originally designed as birth control, are actually a form of perimenopause treatment because they try to regulate your hormones to give you a regular monthly cycle, as well as alleviate some of your other symptoms. It is definitely an option to consider if natural methods are not working well enough for you. The topic of perimenopause and pregnancy is very important to many women.
It is something that women need to know and understand so that they can be aware of the options they have, no matter what exactly they want to do.
