Menopause OBGYN Services
Menopause is real. There are physical, emotional and mental changes that take control over you during it. You cannot stop these changes, or rationalize them away. For the longest time, menopause has been referred to as the “change of life” signaling the end of a woman’s reproductive years and a solid welcome into middle age dull drums. Eve Women’s Medical Anti-Aging and Longevity Centers believe nothing is further from the truth. This is the time for climbing up the hill and not the time for driving over it. This is the time to fight back. Talk with us so that you can be prepared when menopause arrives.
What are the symptoms of menopause?
Menopause affects every woman differently. Women may experience a wide range of feelings from anxiety, discomfort, and depression. Moods can come and go without warning. Menopause is also associated with sexual difficulties relating to mood, pain during intercourse and delayed or inhibited orgasm. Your menstruation cycle may become irregular. You may experience spotting, pain, weight gain, bouts of anger, sleeplessness, or even aversion to your spouse’s snoring. You may have other symptoms, too. Many symptoms at this time of life happen simply due to aging, while some are due to menopause. It’s not always possible to tell if symptoms are related to aging, menopause, or both. Some changes you might notice as you near menopause include:
Change in pattern of periods (They can be shorter or longer, lighter or heavier, or there may be more or less time between periods)
Hot flashes (sometimes called hot flushes), night sweats (sometimes followed by a chill)
Trouble sleeping through the night (with or without night sweats)
Mood swings, feeling crabby, or crying spells
Trouble focusing, “fuzzy thinking,” or forgetfulness
Hair loss or thinning on your head or more hair growth on your face
Dropping estrogen levels around the time of menopause also leads to bone loss in women. Estrogen helps to build and maintain bone. So after menopause, bone loss speeds up for several years as estrogen levels rapidly decrease. Bone loss can cause bones to weaken, therefore bones can break more easily. This condition is called osteoporosis.
Today, women entering menopause can be healthier, feel younger than their years, and lead more active lives and careers than previous generations. This is what Eve Women’s Medical Center wants to provide for you. Let Eve Medical help you find solutions and answers to help make this time of your life and your future rewarding and satisfying.
