We all wish that wisdom was the only thing that came with age. For women, menopause is part of the process too. While some women may breeze through this time of transition feeling great, many will need to seek relief from symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, and mood swings. Your provider can give you a personalized evaluation of the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy as well as non-hormonal treatment options so that together you can create a treatment plan that works best for your lifestyle. Thankfully, there’s a lot you can do to sustain a long, healthy, and happy life.
In addition to menopause symptoms, we can discuss other midlife health concerns with you. Your physician can assess and address your risks of heart disease and osteoporosis. We can discuss preventive nutrition — changes in your diet to help you prevent obesity and disease. We can also screen and treat you for troublesome midlife health issues such as urinary incontinence or pelvic floor dysfunction and other urogynecology issues.
