Menopause is the period in life when you stop menstruating. It's a natural biological process that all women experience. Doctors define menopause as 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period. After menopause ends, you can no longer bear children.
Perimenopause, the start of menopause, usually occurs in your 40s but could start earlier. During perimenopause, your periods grow sporadic and then eventually stop altogether. The average age for menopause is 51.
In addition to sporadic periods, you may experience the following symptoms as you start menopause.
While usually sporadic, menopause symptoms can be very disruptive and distressing. Fortunately, Nile Women's Health Care offers comprehensive menopause management. They believe in menopause made better.
Your Nile Women's Health Care doctor helps you manage menopause in a variety of ways. Changes such as regular exercise, eating healthy, and losing extra weight can make a big difference.
If you're having trouble dropping extra pounds, the Nile Women's Health Care medical weight loss program can help. Your doctor tailors the weight loss program for your life as a busy woman.
To manage frustrating menopause symptoms like vaginal dryness, itchiness, mild urinary incontinence, and pain during sex, in-office MonaLisa Touch® laser treatments can ease your symptoms with no downtime or discomfort.
Your doctor may also recommend the InTone device, which you use at home to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and stop bladder leakage.
Depending on your symptoms and situation, your doctor may also recommend other hormone replacement options to help you have a comfortable menopause transition.
Don't discontinue birth control until your doctor tells you it's okay. If you still have periods, you can still get pregnant. Even after you stop using birth control, you still need to continue sexually transmitted disease precautions.
