The Stages of Menopause

Menopause occurs when a woman’s body stops menstruating. The biggest effect is a marked decrease in hormone production, especially estrogen and progesterone. Whether menopause is triggered by age, by removal of the ovaries (oophorectomy or hysterectomy), or by medical intervention, the resultant hormone imbalance causes several issues.

Age-related menopause usually happens in 3 stages.


Perimenopause can start 8 to 10 years before menopause, during which the hormone production in a woman’s body diminishes.

  • Irregular periods
  • Sleep issues
  • Joint/muscle aches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog


A woman’s body has stopped producing the hormones that trigger the menstrual cycle. Menopause is marked by the absence of a period for 12 consecutive months. Also, the ovaries have mostly ceased producing estrogen and no longer release eggs.

  • Irregular/no periods
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal wall thinning/atrophy
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Flushed skin
  • Diminished libido
  • Painful intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog
  • Heart pounding


Postmenopause occurs when a full calendar year has passed since the last time you had a period. Most women experience a dissipation of the strength of symptoms, with some disappearing altogether. Postmenopause generally lasts for 4 to 5 years. It’s unfair—no doubt—but the symptoms could last up to 10 years or more.

  • Hot flashes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urgency incontinence
  • Osteoporosis
  • Depression
  • Cognitive decline
  • Dry skin
  • Hair loss
  • Sleep issues
  • Weight gain
  • Diminished libido

No care provider should tell you that you have no recourse but to cope with symptoms of the menopause experience. No woman needs to just “suck it up.” You deserve help getting through this time in your life. Regain Functional Medicine + Aesthetics stands at the ready with HRT for menopause in Kansas City.

The symptoms are caused by hormone imbalances. Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapies can help re-establish balance to put the pause on menopause symptoms. Your natural biological change will continue. You just don’t have to feel like a stranger in your own body while it happens!

Starting Your HRT for Menopause

In Kansas City, Leawood, Lawrence, and all our communities, women have discovered that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy makes life so much better when going through the stages of menopause.

You have choices for how you want your BHRT administered. Our first and foremost recommendation is weekly injection. We will perform these injections in our office for the first 4 weeks of treatment, so that we can monitor your progress closely and make adjustments as needed to achieve optimal results.

When your issues have dissipated (or disappeared), we know we’ve found the perfect dose. You’ll be able to self-administer on a weekly basis at home after that, with check-ins every 1 to 3 months to ensure therapy effectiveness.

Having weekly injections also makes sure that your hormone balance stays level. Some other therapy delivery forms create higher peaks and valleys of hormone levels depending on the depletion rate of the form; however, the best delivery form is the one that works best for you!

Regain offers several forms of HRT for menopause in Kansas City, including:

  • Topical creams/gels
  • Patches
  • Implanted pellets
  • Injections

What best fits your lifestyle and preferences will be determined through consultation with your Regain provider before starting BHRT. With our expertise in hormone replacement therapy and our regular monitoring of your progress, we’ll identify any issues early on and make sure your function improves!
