Menopause

Difficulty sleeping, weight gain, irritability, mood swings, depression – if these problems have become a regular part of your life, you may be experiencing mid-life changes. And it’s likely they aren’t going away soon. For women, this is known as the menopause or peri-menopausal years – the time before you are officially in menopause.

The menopausal and peri-menopausal years are very unique for each person. Peri-menopause can last six years or more and some women will continue to experience these symptoms some years into menopause.

Our doctors will work closely with you to develop an individualized hormone treatment plan that provides the lowest dose possible for the shortest time-frame to relieve symptoms while attempting to minimize risk for other health concerns.
