Menopause Q & A
What are the symptoms of menopause?
The onset of menopause is typically right around age 51 in the United States, but menopause symptoms and even perimenopause issues can begin as early as your late 30s or early 40s. These menopause-related symptoms can include:
- Hot flashes
- Irregular periods
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary incontinence
- Chills or night sweats
- Loss of breast fullness
- Loss of libido or sexual dysfunction
- Slowed metabolism and weight gain
You may also find that you’re having difficulty concentrating or focusing like your mind is always foggy. While not always serious medical concerns, these issues can certainly lower your quality of life if left untreated.
When should I see a doctor for menopause?
Dr. Leaphart-St. Cloud encourages you to visit Allcare for Women for an evaluation if you’re experiencing any of the menopause symptoms described above, even if they seem minor or infrequent. It’s especially important to have a menopause evaluation if your symptoms are:
- Affecting your work performance
- Straining your personal relationships
- Worsening or occurring more frequently
- Preventing you from participating in enjoyable activities
Hormonal fluctuations associated with menopause can increase your risk of bone loss (osteoporosis), so it’s important to schedule an evaluation at Allcare for Women as soon as your symptoms begin.
How is menopause treated?
Allcare for Women entirely tailors your menopause treatment plan to your needs and the severity of your symptoms. Treating menopause can include:
- Low-dose antidepressants (for hot flashes)
- Medications to treat osteoporosis
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Vaginal estrogen
Allcare for Women also proudly offers Cynosure® TempSure™ Vitalia treatments. This radiofrequency energy platform helps revitalize your vaginal area, simply by inserting a small probe. As the radiofrequency energy penetrates into vaginal tissues, new tissues and collagen start forming.
Over time as tissues build up, you can experience an improvement in your symptoms, including painful sex, mild urinary incontinence, and vaginal dryness, among others. TempSure Vitalia treatments can even promote vaginal tightening. With so many innovative menopause treatments available at Allcare for Women, you can expect fast and effective relief from your symptoms.
You have plenty of options for menopause management at Allcare for Women. Book your menopause evaluation either online or over the phone today.
