Many women never seek help from their physician in order to better manage their menopause symptoms. But menopause is more than just the hot flashes, mood changes, and trouble sleeping that come with a lack of estrogen production. Women who enter menopause are also at a higher risk of hypertension, cholesterol disorders, diabetes, and osteoporosis. We can help you find relief from your symptoms, and just as importantly, we can suggest testing to confirm there aren’t more serious concerns.
Common menopause symptoms to discuss with your menopause management specialist:
Women often go through hot flashes for years and they’re an expected part of menopause. However, they can also act as a warning sign for women at increased risk for a heart attack or stroke. Your specialist will work with you to determine the best course of action to manage your risk for heart disease and reduce your hot flashes.
Vaginal dryness/vaginal bleeding
When the body stops producing estrogen, one of the physical responses is thinner, dryer vaginal walls. This can lead to discomfort, pain during sex, and vaginal bleeding. While irregular vaginal bleeding is most often a result of vaginal dryness, in rare cases, it could be a sign of more serious concerns.
Changes in your mood are another expected side effect of menopause. Everyone experiences menopause differently, but many women feel increased stress, depression or just emotional in general. Keeping track of your moods over time can help bring understanding, and the menopause specialists at WCJC are here to help discover the individualized treatment that will help bring balance to your mood.
