Menopausal Evaluation and Treatment

Menopause is defined as the time of life when estrogen production from the ovaries stops completely. For most women this occurs around age 50, but may occur earlier or later. The menopause process (Peri menopause) can take several years, beginning when ovarian hormone production declines and fluctuates.

Many women can have no associated symptoms, while others experience moderate to severe quality of life ”issues,” including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Worsening insomnia
  • Depression / mood changes
  • Irregular uterine bleeding
  • Vaginal dryness / itching
  • Painful intercourse
