If you’re in your 30s or 40s and noticing things are a little off, don’t rule out pre-menopause. Perimenopause is the season before you hit menopause. Typically perimenopause lasts less than five years; but some women have experienced symptoms for only a few months and even up to ten years. Every woman’s body is different; therefore every woman enters (and exits) perimenopause differently. Hormone levels begin changing and give off signs that you’re getting older and menopause is drawing nearer. Each patient’s symptoms of perimenopause differ, however many women tend to experience one or more of the following:
  • Changes in periods – heavier, lighter, less often, more frequent
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings, depression and anxiety
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Higher cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Painful intercourse or decreased libido
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Bone loss
  • Struggles in fertility

HRT for Perimenopause

Oz Preventive Medicine offers HRT for perimenopausal patients. Traditional synthetic hormones prescribed to patients facing perimenopause may cause insomnia, headaches, pain and more depression. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy begins with a consultation to first determine if you are in perimenopause. Blood work will indicate any hormone deficiencies. In the event HRT is needed, our skilled physician will prescribe an individualized regimen of therapies to combat symptoms and reduce any unwanted health risks. Contact Oz Preventive Medicine to learn more about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Call (913) 871-8787.


What a difference you have made in my life

Frankly, without Dr. Lang's acumen at replacing my hormone levels to an appropriate level, I don't think I could have continued to work in my field of expertise. In my mid 40's I started experiencing fatigue, brain fog, lack of confidence, timidity, and lack of focus - not to mention irritability, anger and a lack of libido. Dr. Lang helped me discover that my testosterone levels were below even the "normal lab range". He explained to me the theory behind replacement therapy and convinced me that I could return to my former self - with a little effort on my part. The BHRT was just part of the anti-aging protocol; the more I was able to adhere to the other components, the more benefit I would receive. After just three weeks of testosterone therapy, modifying my diet, and moderate exercise, I was more than elated with the results. My wife asked me where I had been for all those years. All I could say was I just didn't know. Well, now I do, and I can tell you I will never go back to that angry, tired, old man.


Currently I have been on the therapy treatment with the OZ Preventive Medicine Clinic for approximately four months. I started feeling some of the benefits about one month into the program, but the dramatic results kicked in at about three months.

I have been feeling better overall, have more energy, sleep better, lost fat and gained strength. My recovery time from my workouts is so much faster now too, which keeps me motivated and I continue to exceed my goals.

At my three month mark, I lost a total of 12 pounds and my body fat percentage decreased by 3%. With this fat weight off of me, I am far more vascular now too. What amazes me is that at the same time I was able to dramatically increase me strength. For example, my bench press max increased around 40 pounds.

I have been very impressed with the service and treatment by the Oz Preventive Medicine Clinic. The benefits don’t happen overnight or without dedication, but it is well worth it! It sure is good to feel half my age!
