World Menopause Month

World Menopause Month
Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her period stops. It usually occurs naturally, most often after age 45. Menopause happens because the woman’s ovaries stop producing the hormones estrogen and progesterone. A woman has reached menopause when she has not had a period for one year.
Some of the symptoms of menopause can include:
  • A change in periods – shorter or longer, lighter or heavier, with more or less time in between
  • Hot flashes and/or night sweats
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Trouble focusing
  • Less hair on head, more on face

There are a variety of options to help reduce and/or eliminate the symptoms and effects of menopause. There is BHRT (Bio-identical Hormones), which can help with the mood swings and hot flashes; and FemTouch, which can help with vaginal dryness.

You can request an appointment here to see what the best option for you is.
