Frequently Asked Questions:
What is menopause?
Menopause is a natural biological process that occurs when a woman's ovaries stop producing eggs and her menstrual cycle comes to an end. It typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, but can occur earlier or later.
What are some common symptoms of menopause?
Common symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, vaginal dryness, and decreased libido. Every woman's experience with menopause is unique, so it is important to discuss your individual symptoms with your OBGYN to determine the best course of treatment.
What is hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?
Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment option for menopausal symptoms that involves taking estrogen and/or progesterone to replace the hormones that the body is no longer producing. HRT can be taken in a variety of forms, including pills, patches, and creams.
Are there any risks associated with hormone replacement therapy?
Like any medication, hormone replacement therapy comes with potential risks and benefits. Some studies have suggested that long-term use of HRT may increase the risk of certain health conditions, such as breast cancer and blood clots. However, the risks and benefits of HRT vary depending on the individual, and our team can work with you to determine whether this treatment option is right for you.
What can I do to manage my menopausal symptoms?
In addition to medication and hormone therapy, there are several lifestyle changes that can help manage menopausal symptoms. These include maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, and avoiding triggers such as caffeine and alcohol. Our team can provide guidance and support on how to make these changes and manage your symptoms effectively.
