Menopausal Care

Menopausal Care

When a woman stops having her period for about a year, she is considered to be in menopause. This is the time in a woman’s life when she is no longer able to bear children. The shifting hormones that cause menopause often have uncomfortable side effects, but there are treatments and therapies to consider. Dr. Brown can discuss what those options are and how they may help you.

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • Hot flashes 
  • Mood swings 
  • Irritability 
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • “Brain fog” 
  • Thinning of the vaginal tissues 
  • Vaginal dryness 
  • Painful intercourse 
  • Dry skin 
  • Thinning Hair 

 
There are several ways to approach menopause symptoms. Some women respond well to treating specific symptoms. Other women may require therapy to treat many symptoms together. Some options are:

  • Combination hormones
  • Estrogen therapy
  • Bio-identical hormone therapy
  • Homeopathic remedies


Dr. Brown is happy to discuss your specific concerns and how menopause may affect your life.
