Sounds to us like you’re experiencing perimenopause
Think of it as puberty in reverse. As you approach menopause, your hormone levels fluctuate wildly, affecting everything: your menstrual cycle, your sleep, your mood, your weight, your hair, your skin. Many women experience hot flashes during this time.
For women who are still menstruating, or are within one year of their last period, Alloy’s medical director, Dr Sharon Malone, recommends a low dose birth control pill. Regulating your body’s natural estrogen as it fluctuates provides safe and effective relief from symptoms, regulates your cycle, and also protects against serious health issues as you age.
Take a look at the perimenopause options below and make your selection. A menopause-trained physician will review your choices and let you know your best options.
There IS relief to be found.

Our Chief Medical Officer
We have specialists
All of our doctors follow treatment guidelines approved by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
Alloy co-founders, Anne Fulenwider and Monica Molenaar, built Alloy to make it easy to get evidence-based solutions & expertise, without ever leaving your home.
A New Approach
We believe women over 40 have earned the right to feel fantastic, and that finding expert menopause care shouldn’t be a full-time job.
The crazy part is I didn’t know how much I needed the patch. I thought I was “fine,” albeit a bit uncomfortable. A friend recommended Alloy. Best decision I made in years. I had no idea how much better I could feel.
I'm feeling great after starting treatment from Alloy! So much less moody and irritable and I'm sleeping through the night like a teenager! I can't believe I ever hesitated to start my estradiol.
