Menopause Q & A

When does menopause occur?

Menopause is when your regular monthly menstrual periods come to an end, and you can no longer conceive children. This stage of your life, which typically occurs around age 52 or 53, occurs when you go 12 consecutive months without having a period. 

Exactly when you go through menopause has a lot to do with your genetics and your personal health history. You may certainly experience menopause at a younger or older age, but early 50s is most common.      

What are the symptoms of menopause?

Menopause affects every woman differently. For several years leading up to menopause, you may experience very abnormal periods and even go several months without having a period. This stage, known as perimenopause, is generally when menopause symptoms begin for many women. You may experience:

  • Hot flashes
  • Low libido
  • Mood swings 
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Poor memory and focus 
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight

Fortunately, with the help of Contemporary Women's Care, these menopause-related issues can soon become a thing of your past. Your dedicated physician runs comprehensive labs and evaluates your symptoms so she can find the most effective treatment for your unique needs. 

Can I get treatment for menopause?

Yes! After checking your hormone levels, your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care talks with you about which treatment solutions can help. Your menopause treatment plan may include:

  • Exercise planning
  • Dietary supplements 
  • Topical estrogen cream
  • Weight-loss management 
  • Low-dose hormonal birth control
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy
  • Vaginal suppositories or lubricants
  • Nonhormonal medications

Contemporary Women's Care is dedicated to ensuring you get relief from agonizing menopausal symptoms. Your OB/GYN may schedule you for exams every few months to evaluate your hormone levels, which tend to fluctuate throughout perimenopause. She can make changes to your menopause treatment plan at any time to ensure you get the effective relief you deserve.
