Menopause Treatment Lexington, KY


Menopause

Menopause is defined as occurring a full year following a woman's last menstrual period. Typically, this occurs in women during their 40s or 50s, but there are exceptions. Menopause marks the end of menstrual cycles and often is associated with other symptoms; however, the end of fertility arrives as a relief to some women, and vitality and sexuality can still be maintained with good health practices.

Menopause does, however, tend to cause some physical symptoms, like hot flashes or sleeping issues. Some women report feelings of lower energy, anxiety, and/or sadness. At Associates for Women's Care, we have many effective treatment options to address the symptoms of menopause.

Menopause Treatment

Since menopause itself is not curable or fully reversible, treatment primarily deals with associated symptoms. As with any individual, a healthy lifestyle is one key to minimizing the symptoms of menopause. Our doctors consult with patients to uncover symptoms and symptom causes before taking steps toward treatment. Topical agents, hormones, and medications may also be prescribed, depending on the type and severity of the symptoms.
