Menopause Q & A

Health Solutions

What is menopause?

Menopause is the stage in a woman’s life where she no longer has regular menstrual cycles. It signals the end of her fertility years, as the female body stops producing the hormones necessary to conceive a child.

Menopause has technically arrived when a woman goes 12 consecutive months without a period.

 

What are the symptoms of menopause?

You might start to experience symptoms of menopause months or years before you reach this stage officially. Symptoms vary from one woman to the next, but may include:

  • Mood swings, depression, or anxiety
  • Lowered libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Weight gain
  • Disruptions in sleep patterns


Some women might also experience night sweats, vaginal dryness, or brittle bones.


How is menopause treated?

Your Health Solutions provider helps you treat and manage the symptoms of menopause. You receive a customized treatment plan that might involve several recommendations, including:

  • Bioidentical hormone therapy ― helps relieve symptoms like hot flashes or vaginal dryness
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation helps women who have incontinence issues due to menopause
  • Weight loss support helps if you’ve gained weight as a result of menopause

 

Your menopause treatment plan is highly individualized, and it's adjustable at any time.

 

What are the benefits of treating menopause?

Menopause can be a physically and emotionally challenging time in a woman’s life. With all of the changes happening in your body, it’s helpful to have a trusted medical provider to navigate you through the process.

After menopause, your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction increase. Since this stage marks a time when women are more prone to dangerous late-life health conditions, treatment is helpful to ensure you catch the early signs of any potential problems.

Medical treatment for menopause is also helpful because it allows you to better cope with the emotional and psychological challenges that sometimes arise for women at this time. Our team at Health Solutions can support and empower you during this complicated transition, giving you all the tools and resources you need to feel healthy and happy.
