Menopause Q & A

Menopause marks a natural transition from your reproductive years, typically occurring between the ages of 45-55. This phase, which can span 7-14 years, varies in its impact on women. While menopause technically begins after 12 consecutive months without a period, symptoms may manifest earlier.

Menopause coincides with a period when personal and professional responsibilities may be diminishing, offering an exciting phase for many women. You deserve to embrace these years without being hindered by troublesome symptoms.

Although menopause is a normal and natural part of life, it doesn’t mean you have to endure uncomfortable or disruptive changes. Treatment options are available to help manage symptoms effectively.

Recognizing the signs of menopause is crucial for timely care. Some indications that you might be entering or experiencing menopause include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disruption
  • Dry skin
  • Headaches
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lack of interest in sex

These are just a few of the signs of menopause. If you notice changes impacting your routines or causing concern, schedule a visit at SheMD to explore available treatment options.

Hormone replacement therapy stands as the primary treatment for menopausal symptoms, as many changes during this transition result from declining hormone production. Supplementing these hormones with synthetic versions can restore optimal balance and alleviate numerous menopausal symptoms.

There are various methods to receive hormone therapy, and Dr. Kahan collaborates with you to determine the most suitable course of action for your unique needs. Patience is key as hormone therapy takes time to show its effects, and rest assured, you have the full support of the SheMD team throughout your journey.

If your symptoms are limited, such as headaches or mood issues, targeted treatment may suffice.

When you’re prepared to begin, contact the office to schedule a visit, or conveniently book online with just a few clicks.
