Side effect of hormone balancing that I did not expect
Thursday, September 08, 2016
Here I am 49 years old in year 6 of perimenopause. Since this year I had gone without my periods for 5 months I actually thought I am finally getting to the end of perimenopause. After all my hormone check last year showed the hormone levels in the Menopause range. Also every medical book I own - remember I am a nurse - tells me perimenopause takes 3-5 years on average.
Since I started the fat loss diet to balance my hormones I suddenly have been getting my periods again and regular. Nit amused since I really had been hoping I am almost through with perimenopause. It gas been a VERY bumpy ride for me and I have not enjoyed it. Now am trying to come to terms that perimenopause is here to stay with me for another couple of years.
But so far I am not stressing about it. I am unhappy about it but not uptight. I am happy with all the other positive changes in my body due to the hormone levels balancing out.
