Menopause does not necessarily require treatment – it is a natural part of life. For women who have symptoms that impact their quality of life, however, there are good options including alternative therapies (such as lifestyle changes, supplements and herbal products or acupuncture), hormone therapies and other medications. These therapies are tailored to each individual woman based on her symptoms, needs and risks. Symptoms of menopause include:  

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Mood swings
  • Weight changes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Fluctuations in sexual desire or response
  • Short-term memory loss or “brain fog”
  • Achy joints
  • Frequent urination or leaking of urine

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend you have an exam annually. Some women get a breast and pelvic exam with their primary care doctor, and do not need to see a gynecologist. But these exams should be done every year. We are happy to see you for these. We are also available for any concerns. Screening tests like pap smears may become less frequent in this age range, but this depends on your history and is a discussion between you and your doctor.

It can be one of the safest interventions for menopausal symptoms! Not every woman needs hormone therapy, but if you are very symptomatic, please come talk with us about the data and research into long term risks and benefits of HRT.
