Menopause Q&A

What is menopause?

Menopause is the transition of life that marks the end of your period (menstration). The experience is unique for every woman, causing a wide range of symptoms that can vary in severity.


For some women, they may only experience mild symptoms. While other women might have menopause symptoms that are so disruptive, it affects their quality of life. 


You may need treatment if you’re experiencing symptoms that interfere with your daily routine, such as:


  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes 
  • Headaches
  • Dry skin
  • Hair thinning
  • Weight gain
  • Vaginal dryness or discomfort
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
  • Decreased libido (sex drive)
  • Emotional changes like irritability, depression, or mood swings 
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue 


If you’re concerned about any of these signs of menopause, Dr. Eden can help. She works closely with you to develop a menopause treatment plan that suits your health needs.

When should I seek treatment for menopause?

You should schedule an evaluation for menopause treatment as soon as you experience symptoms that affect your days or nights in any way.


Although menopause is a natural process for all women, you don’t have to bear with it. Menopause starts around age 52 for most women, but the months or even years leading up to your last period may cause symptoms. This is a phase known as perimenopause. 


Women who’ve had hysterectomy may experience menopausal symptoms sooner.

What are my options for menopause treatment?

After performing a comprehensive physical exam and reviewing your medical history, Dr. Eden discusses your concerns and lifestyle habits. Then, she develops a customized menopause care plan that focuses on relieving or managing your symptoms.

Depending on your wellness needs, menopause treatment may include:

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

Dr. Eden may recommend HRT to address low estrogen or progesterone levels that cause menopausal symptoms. Restoring these hormones to their normal levels may help relieve certain symptoms. 

Lifestyle changes 


She might also provide lifestyle advice to manage your symptoms, such as making diet modifications, getting regular exercise, and quitting a smoking habit.
