Menopause happens to all women, most of who are in their 40s and 50s. The average age in the United States is 51. Called “the change” by some people, menopause begins when a woman’s estrogen levels start to shift. Her menstrual cycles start to get lighter and/or irregular and her ovaries stop releasing eggs. When her periods eventually end, she’s no longer able to get pregnant naturally.
At the office of Totowa, we understand that this time of life can be a struggle, and we’re here to offer relief. We’ll listen to your concerns and develop an effective treatment plan to help you through this experience without significant struggle or discomfort.
Menopause is a normal part of a woman’s aging process, but its effects can vary greatly from woman to woman. As hormones fluctuate to accommodate the menopausal state, women may experience a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms and complications.
The most common menopausal symptoms are hot flashes, irregular periods, fatigue, memory lapses, night sweats, hot flashes, loss of libido and vaginal dryness. In the long term, menopause can pose higher risks for heart disease, as well as bone loss and fractures due to osteoporosis.
Those symptoms are usually preceded by a stage called perimenopause, which can last from three to years and is when a woman’s estrogen levels start to decline.
Many women needn’t live with these uncomfortable symptoms at any stage. Hormone therapy is widely recognized as the best treatment for menopausal symptoms.
