Menopause Q & A

Leavitt Women's Healthcare

What is Menopause? 

Menopause is the series of changes that occur in a woman’s body after it stops releasing monthly ovum and decreases the amount of certain hormones. These hormonal changes cause a variety of emotional and somatic symptoms including anxiety, irritability, mood swings, hot flashes, reduced libido, vaginal atrophy, and sleep disruption. Each woman has a unique experience during menopause, and the severity of the symptoms can vary greatly between women. The doctors at Leavitt Women’s Healthcare help women to manage their symptoms and maintain healthy and active lives during this change of life.

What Treatments Minimize the Symptoms of Menopause? 

Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy is a common treatment for menopause. Hormone pellet therapy supplements the decreasing levels of natural hormones in a woman’s body and can provide relief from some menopausal symptoms. Lifestyle changes are also helpful as certain activities or foods can trigger symptoms of menopause. Some women benefit from other treatments including medication, relaxation, or talk therapy. As women go through menopause, the doctors at Leavitt Women’s Healthcare provide support and care to reduce the symptoms and improve their patients’ well-being.

How Does Hormone Therapy Work? 

When menopause begins, hormone activity in the body often fluctuates and decreases. During the period of hormonal fluctuation, women experience uncomfortable symptoms. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy provides the woman with the hormones needed to achieve balance in her body, relieving symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Regular monitoring is essential to the success of hormone pellet therapy, ensuring that each individual patient’s customized hormonal treatment is providing balance. The doctors at Leavitt Women’s Healthcare work in partnership with their patients to make menopause as comfortable as possible for their patients and provide regular monitoring services to ensure that each patient maintains the appropriate hormonal balance for optimal well-being.
