Menopause Management with Sandpoint Women’s Health

 

Menopause occurs when you naturally stop having menstrual periods, this typically happens to women in their early 50s. Changes in hormone levels can cause women in their 40s to experience symptoms for months or years leading up to menopause, this is called perimenopause.

Symptoms can include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flashes
  • Changes in mood
  • Weight gain
  • Night sweats
  • Changes in skin and hair
  • Problems sleeping
  • Changes in sexual health

Menopause is diagnosed when you have not had a menstrual cycle for 12 months. You can manage your transition through menopause with help from our providers at Sandpoint Women's Health.

There are many ways to treat the symptoms associated with menopause, from lifestyle changes including eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, to hormone replacement therapy. Talk to one of our providers about your specific symptoms so they can create a personalized treatment plan for you.

It's important to continue to have regular appointments with your healthcare provider after menopause for preventative healthcare screenings such as mammograms, colonoscopies, and bone density tests. Postmenopausal women are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, heart attack, and stroke.
