Menopause fatigue is an exhaustion that cannot be resolved with more sleep. It can make you feel like your energy has bottomed out. Feeling fatigued is among the top symptoms reported by women in the menopausal transition.
Menopausal fatigue is due in large part to hormone changes and the downstream effects. The levels of estrogen and progesterone are changing all at once and these interact with the endocrine hormones associated with energy from the adrenal and thyroid. This instability can be hard for the body and can lead to crushing menopausal fatigue.
Feeling tired goes hand-in-hand with another common perimenopausal symptom—trouble sleeping. When you’re waking up frequently at night or have trouble falling asleep, it’s little wonder that the next day you feel drained with poor sleep quality.
How we beat menopausal fatigue
We'll review your health history and listen to your symptoms.
Every woman's experience of menopause is as unique as she is. We'll first review your medical history, family history, and gynecological history prior to your telemedicine visit.
During the video visit, you'll share your experience with menopause, starting with your quality of life and other menopausal symptoms you're experiencing (such as menopausal fatigue or anxiety).
We'll discuss evidence-based treatments proven to relieve fatigue, including:
Lifestyle modifications & Natural remedies
We'll recommend supplements, vitamins, as well as lifestyle and diet changes, to help boost energy levels, improve sleep hygiene, and lifestyle changes.
Based on your health history, we’ll review therapies and medications that can help improve your fatigue. Our doctors may suggest further testing options to rule out other issues that could be contributing to fatigue.

My ObGYN at Gennev has always been willing to go above and beyond when doctors nearby have not been willing to do so. I have recommended Gennev to two friends!
Katie has been a tremendous help this past few months. Her expertise and guidance helped me make vital decisions in regard to my menopause journey.
My doctor was the first practitioner who took my feelings and symptoms seriously and provided both great information and a well-informed, evidence-based plan of care.
She is very knowledgeable, genuinely helpful and focused, and she listened to me and answered all my questions. I am relieved to have received such solid medical advice, support, planning, and targeted intervention.
Dr. Lisa Savage is such an excellent provider! I am so happy that she is my menopause specialist. I was very desperate before I met her in the fall.
She not only listens, she is engaged and supportive. No matter what questions I throw at her, she always has great feedback, suggestions and has a become a crucial part of my menopause journey.
Jessica totally has her act together. I was impressed by her gentle use of behavioral intervention techniques. She was warm and supportive.
Dr. Savage helped remove the veil of mystery, and address the WHY all of these changes are happening. Just having clarity, and a knowledgeable person to bounce ideas and concerns off of is a huge gift.
Jessica was very knowledgeable about my questions and concerns... I was very pleased that Jessica took the time to listen to me and gave me guidance along the way. She never made me feel like we were rushed...
She answers questions without making me feel dumb for asking them. I appreciate the undivided attention I get in this format... so often in a doctors office you feel rushed and not the center of their attention.
Oh, finally! Someone that seems to truly understand! She debunked everything I though I knew. Was a bit unsettling at first but she spoke with authority, facts and data which instilled confidence.
Stasi was a wealth of resources, giving ideas and things to try for symptoms. She asked good questions and had specific suggestions I could try right away. It’s very helpful to feel heard and supported.
My menopause journey has been like a rollercoaster ride, ups, downs, twist and certainly turns on top of the stress from my work, which has really effected my health. Stasi has been my coach and cheerleader through it all...
Dr. Dunsmoor-su was fantastic. She is very knowledgable and relatable. It was so refreshing to have a physician who does not just say, "that's what happens when you get older..."
It is a HUGE relief just to have a chat with someone who can tell me all the strangeness I am experiencing IS strange, but it is also perfectly NORMAL.
