Menopause Q & A

While you may begin to experience the common symptoms associated with menopause in your 40s, menopause begins when you’ve gone 12 consecutive months without your period. This marks you reaching menopause and the end of your fertility.

The onset of menopause varies, but you may reach this life change around the same age as your mother. Most women in the United States hit menopause around age 51.

During the transitional phase to menopause — referred to as perimenopause — you may experience a number of symptoms, such as:

  • Difficulty sleeping or fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness or pain
  • Low sex drive
  • Slow down in metabolism and weight gain
  • Loss of hair
Menopause not only causes physical symptoms, but also increases your risk of chronic health conditions, including osteoporosis, heart disease, pelvic prolapse, and urinary incontinence.

As experts in women’s wellness, the team at My OB/GYN Specialists not only help alleviate the physical symptoms you feel during menopause, but they also help manage your health to reduce your risk of developing a chronic condition.

The team at My OB/GYN Specialists use a combination of treatments to help you through menopause. You can’t stop menopause and the goal of treatment is to reduce the symptoms affecting your life and improve your overall health and well-being.

For your physical symptoms, they may recommend:

  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, a natural alternative to traditional hormone replacement
  • Vaginal estrogen
  • Over-the-counter lubricants
  • Gabapentin or clonidine to manage hot flashes

For bone health, the team may prescribe medication to help maintain strength, but filling your diet with foods rich in calcium and vitamin D is also recommended.

To reduce your risk of heart disease and help you get to and maintain a healthy weight, they recommend a healthy diet and exercise plan.
If you’re experiencing pelvic prolapse —- which is when the pelvic muscles weaken and can’t support the pelvic organs, causing them to fall — the team may recommend pelvic floor therapy, diet changes, or surgery.

This advanced practice also offers specialized laser treatment with MonaLisa Touch® to improve vaginal health, reduce dryness, urinary incontinence, and your sex drive.
