In this very interesting episode, Dr. Hirsch will break down six of the more commonly heard of uncommon symptoms of menopause. This is a must-listen for any woman in midlife and at menopause!

So, two weeks or a week ago or so I posted about rare symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. And I can’t believe the amount of responses I got from this one post, which shows me that there are so many other symptoms that go missed, and they’re misunderstood, and it just leads to the confusion or the feeling of not ever being able to treat what it is, or that dismissive response that you might get from your clinician. So we’re gonna be talking about six of the more uncommon perimenopause, menopause symptoms in today’s episode.



All right, so let’s get into today’s episode, which is, explaining six of the more uncommon symptoms of, again, both perimenopause and menopause. And I always want to remind women that symptoms of menopause, those classic symptoms or unclassified symptoms as we’re gonna talk about today can certainly start in a perimenopause where you’re still having periods whether they’re more frequent or they’re more spaced out. And so these are going to be the more uncommon symptoms of either a perimenopause or menopause.



Now, right off the bat, I also wanna let you know that I’m not exactly sure I know the physiology behind each of these, but I’m gonna do my best to stay true to you and tell you when I don’t know something. But it doesn’t mean that we don’t know that, it might just mean that Heather Hirsch doesn’t know absolutely everything. I know, I have to say it out loud, but it is true! And so, if there are other folks out there who know a little bit more about this, these topics could each have experts in their individual fields. So I’m really excited to dive into this today. And the other final point is that, this list is not exhaustive. There are probably many more uncommon symptoms of perimenopause and menopause that we still haven’t yet recognized. And again, this list is just not a fully comprehensive list.



So let’s jump into the first one on the list which is really actually much more common than I think other clinicians realize, and that is vertigo. Vertigo, if you don’t know, is the medical term for dizziness. Most vertigo is classified as benign positional vertigo. That means what it sounds like. When you move your head from side to side, that’s when you feel the dizziest.



So a really good example of this is someone who is waking up and their alarm goes off and they immediately shoot out of bed without really opening their eyes and letting their brain know what direction they’re looking in and sitting up slowly. When you jump and shoot out of bed and you’re experiencing benign positional vertigo, you can feel a lot of dizziness, that’s one example of it. And this gets very commonly diagnosed in midlife perimenopause and menopause.



Now, we do know that there are estrogen receptors from head to toe. I say this all the time. And there are estrogen receptors in our ears. Literally, there’s an estrogen receptor in every organ system of your body. So don’t be surprised. So, estrogen receptors are in our ears. And as that estrogen starts to decline in perimenopause or as you make no more estrogen once you’re menopausal, for some women, it must just trigger either an imbalance or a firing o...]]>

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

















 

As confusion and seemingly conflicting messages are being sent to women in menopause about the safety of hormone therapy, more and more women are choosing unregulated non-FDA approved hormone therapy. In this important public health episode, Dr. Hirsch discussed how this industry got its wings, and how it is taking advantage of women seeking help during menopause and midlife. In this episode, Dr. Hirsch discusses the history of compounded non-FDA approved hormone therapy, and the many dangers these compounds have on women.
 




SHOW NOTES:


Hey everyone, welcome back to this show. Well, it’s a little noisy in my house. We are excited because we are renovating the attic space and I just can’t wait because I’m going to put my office up there. We’re doing the shiplap, the whole HD thing, totally psyched about it, but they’re literally one floor above, pounding nails and hammering away. So if you hear any of that noise during this episode, that’s why. This episode today, I wanted to talk about pellet injections, as well as the other non-compounded, non-FDA approved hormone therapy regimens that are out there. And specifically, I want to talk about this because I want to explain a little bit more behind the boom in this industry and the dangers of using these types of medications and then ultimately a why and how to get yourself off of them. And if you have a friend in a similar scenario, how to talk her out of it as well, certainly she could listen to this episode, but my dream is that you also gleam some background information that can help explain this to someone else because when we can explain it to someone else, that means we’ve learned it.
 


So for many of you who’ve been listening to my show for a long time now, you know that there was a lot of misleading information from the initial results of the Women’s Health Study or the Women’s Health Initiative that came out in the early 2000s. If you had not already listened to my podcast episode on the Women’s Health Initiative, it’s a few episodes down so scroll back and I would definitely listen to that before you complete listening to this, because it will put it in a lot of context. But because of those fears from the use of commercially available conjugated equine estrogens, which was Premarin at the time, and it’s combination buddy medroxyprogesterone acetate, which is the progesterone component if you had an intact uterus, there grew a new field of air quotes, safe, and air quotes, hormone therapy.
 


Now, if you really think about it, this was a pretty genius move. People who were looking to invest, or to make money, or who were burned out of their traditional either academic positions, or some of these folks were pharmacists or other allied healthcare professionals looked around and said, “Ah, there’s a niche here for women in menopause who don’t feel good. There’s a niche to help women with vague symptoms. There’s a niche that women are going to fill. They’re going to do anything they can to improve the look and feel of their bodies, their sexuality, their hair, their weight, anything.” We certainly live in a society where getting a miracle cure is a really great marketing tool.


So these wellness clinics formed. Now, I use the term wellness clinics,]]>

In this episode, Dr. Hirsch teams up with women’s health physical therapist Missy Gallow DPT, to kick off a dialogue on the aspects of the female lower genitourinary (GU) track. Have you or a friend ever struggled with pain in the vaginal area? Well, we all think we know what the vagina is, but there is more to the lower GU track that just the vagina. As doctors and physical therapists start to recognize pain in the lower vaginal area is not all treated the same it is imperative that we discuss the differences between the vulva, the vestibule, and the vagina. Dr. Gallow breaks down lower GU pain into three categories, all of which are important to distinguish and have different treatment recommendations.

Dr. Missy Gallow can be found on instragram with the handle @twinmama.pelvic.pt and has an incredible core guide that you can access at this link ->  https://gumroad.com/l/eIWXd

In this episode, Dr. Heather Hirsch goes in depth covering the most common endocrine disorder of reproductive age women, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Because this disorder crosses so many various specialties of medicine, this can actually lead both under-diagnosis and misdiagnosis of this syndrome. If you have this syndrome, it is vital to have it appropriately diagnosed, and to find treatment that fits your individualized goals and situational lifestyle priorities. This podcast covers many of the most commonly asked or searched for questions on PCOS such as:

*How do I know that I have it? What can your doctor see on physical exam? What labs should your doctor check? When should you get an ultrasound?

*Why should you care about or rule in or out this diagnosis? Well, it can lead to fertility concerns, metabolic syndrome, and uterine cancer due to long-standing unopposed estrogen. It can also lead to other issues such as anxiety/depression, fatty liver, insulin resistance, sleep apnea, and more.

*How can I treat it? From lifestyle changes to various medications, this podcast provides some guidance on treatment modalities you can discuss with your doctor that fits your needs and priorities.

*How can you tell if treatment is working?
