No, it's not your time yet!You likely are not experiencing any hormone fluctuations yet that would indicate that you are in Perimenopause. That's great because it's the perfect time to work preventatively to resolve any issues you're having and to improve your health. Women lose muscle mass and bone mass, have cardiovascular issues and pelvic floor issues when they are in Perimenopause or beyond. These are difficult to reverse once you're in Perimenopause which is why prevention is crucial! While everyone is different, it is important to recognize when something isn’t normal. You shouldn’t experience any leaking, urgency, pain with intercourse, vaginal dryness, or pelvic pressure or heaviness. If you notice any changes in these issues, keep in mind that the sooner you seek help, the sooner they will be resolved.Be sure to check your email for more tips on how to have a healthy pelvic floor and work preventatively prior to Perimenopause.

The good news is now you know what's happening in your body!Women commonly experience hormone fluctuations as early as age 35! These fluctuations can cause alot of common issues such as cycle irregularities, hot flashes, memory impairments, and mood/sleep disturbances. It’s likely that you also have maybe experienced some common pelvic floor dysfunctions like leaking, urgency, pelvic pain or pelvic floor heaviness.

We want you to know that while all of these issues are common, they are NOT normal. And unfortunately, these issues tend to get worse over time and as we get older (thanks, hormones!). Now is the time to take action and address the root cause of your issues so that they don't get worse over time.
