What is Menopause?

Menopause occurs when a woman no longer experiences menstrual periods. During menopause, the ovaries stop releasing eggs and producing a majority of estrogen. Formally, menopause is diagnosed after 12 consecutive months without a period.

Menopause is very common, with more than three million new cases per year. Unfortunately, menopause can cause many uncomfortable effects on your body, mind, and overall health. Your doctor at OB will work with you to find the best treatments that focus on relieving your symptoms.

Benefits of Menopausal Management

For most women, managing menopause provides immense relief from the symptoms that accompany their menopausal transition. Some benefits of menopausal management besides relieving menopausal symptoms overall include:

  • Improved sleep
  • Relieve hot flashes or reduce hot flashes
  • Heightened sex drive

Hormone Replacement Therapy

As part of normal aging, your body’s hormone levels decline over time. It is common to experience weight gain, low energy, and low sex drive due to hormonal imbalances, which can all reduce your quality of life and increase your risk of serious health problems.

We offer bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) at OB/GYN Associates of Alabama. BHRT is a safe, effective way to improve your hormonal balance naturally without the risks and side effects associated with many conventional hormone replacement therapies. Along with hormone replacement therapy we offer alternative therapies as well. Contact us today to find out more!

Menopausal Management FAQs

The menopausal transition is different for everyone, but common symptoms include mood changes, hot flashes, urinary incontinence, sexual discomfort, sleep problems, and slowed metabolism.

Natural menopause typically happens when a woman is in her early 50s, while perimenopause is a phase that can begin in her early 40s. However, every woman is different–if you believe you are experiencing menopausal symptoms, schedule an appointment with your doctor.
