Menopause is when women naturally stop having menstrual periods as the ovaries stop producing estrogen, which controls the menstrual cycle. Menopause marks the end of the reproductive years.
Menopause may also result from the surgical removal of the ovaries or exposure to certain drugs, chemicals, or radiation.
Every woman experiences menopause uniquely.
Some have mild symptoms lasting only a few months, while others go through years of hot flashes, cold sweats, and mood swings.
Your provider will listen and create a plan uniquely suited to your own personal experiences and physical health and needs. For those women experiencing the symptoms of menopause, we will guide you through various treatment options, including medications and lifestyle changes.
If you are approaching menopause or are currently experiencing menopausal symptoms, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment.
When you meet with one of our providers to discuss treatment options, they will address the following:
- Your symptoms and how they are affecting you. Common symptoms may include vaginal dryness, hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, memory problems, and cold sweats.
- Your personal risks based on your age, overall health, and other risk factors, such as heart disease or cancer.
- Whether you have used hormonal therapy before to treat your menopausal symptoms.
- The best possible hormonal and/or non-hormonal treatments for you.
