Perimenopause & Me

Will the perimenopause cause weight gain?

Will perimenopause cause weight gain?

Let’s talk hormones again, it will come as no surprise I’m sure when I say that during the perimenopause weight gain may happen for some.

Oestrogen dominance can be to blame for the increase in weight, because progesterone can remain low during a cycle if ovulation doesn’t take place this causes the oestrogen dominance.

It doesn’t have to be inevitable that you gain weight during the perimenopause. By paying close attention to what you eat, cutting back on unhealthy processed foods and alcohol, drinking more water to stay hydrated and undertaking some exercise even if it is gentle can all contribute to keeping your weight under control.
