Menopause

Perimenopause is the time before menopause when estrogen levels begin to drop and menstrual cycles become irregular. Many women enter perimenopause in their 40s. While this phase usually lasts three to five years, its length is different for each woman.

Menopause Symptoms:

  • Hot flashes
  • Difficulty sleeping, fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Low sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness or discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Mood changes such as irritability, depression, or anxiety
  • Breast tenderness
  • Worsening of premenstrual syndrome

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.

How is Menopause Treated?

Hormone replacement therapy is the most effective way to treat the symptoms caused by perimenopause and menopause. Hormone replacement may also prevent bone loss and fractures due to osteoporosis. Your doctor at OB-GYN Physicians will consider your age and medical history to determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.

We have a team of compassionate experts dedicated to supporting your transition through menopause. Whether you need hormone replacement therapy, preventive care, or treatment for changes in sexual function, our providers are available to help you.

If you are approaching menopause or are currently experiencing menopausal symptoms, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment
