The process of menopause usually begins in women between the ages of 45-55, beginning with perimenopause and ending with the complete cessation of the menstrual cycle. While this is a natural process, it can often come with unpleasant symptoms, including mood swings, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and hot flashes. At Cohen Medical Practice, we can offer support to women undergoing menopause symptoms.
What Causes Menopause Symptoms?
Perimenopause and menopause affect the level of hormones released by the body. This can lead to a hormonal imbalance which is the source of many of the signs of menopause.
Not all women experience these symptoms, but if you are in your 40s and 50s and having these signs, there is a good chance you are undergoing menopause.
What Are the Symptoms?
Remember, there is no one symptom or group of symptoms that come with menopause, but some of the most common include hot flashes, weight changes, mood changes, and night sweats. Other symptoms can include vaginal dryness, incontinence, and increased heart rate.
How Do We Address Menopause Symptoms?
First, it is important for you to come in for annual wellness exams so that we can make sure that we are doing everything to maintain your good health all throughout your life.
When you come in describing symptoms that are often indicative of menopause, we are likely to check your hormones to see if they are in balance. If they are not, we can put you on a hormone replacement therapy regimen in order to quickly restore the proper balance, which should alleviate many of your symptoms.
