It can be difficult to connect depression and anxiety symptoms with perimenopause and menopause, according to Premier HealthNet PHN physicians.

Before healthcare providers can diagnose menopause or perimenopause as the cause of depression and anxiety, they must rule out other health issues as the cause, including hypothyroidism, according to PHN physicians.

Talking with your doctor and detailing symptoms can help make sure that you get the treatment you need for your depression or anxiety.
