Menopause officially occurs when your ovaries stop producing estrogen or are surgically removed. While some women experience no symptoms, some others experience hormonal changes which usually result in hot flashes, vaginal dryness, recurrent bladder infections, insomnia, mood swings, brain fog and weight gain.
After the menopause transition women are also at increased risk for medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease and bone loss. The repercussions of estrogen deprivation are life-long and with increasing life expectancy, women today can expect to live almost 40 percent of their lives after the menopause transition. In addition, many women experience an early menopause due to removal of ovaries, chemotherapy, radiation or other medical conditions. Our experts here at Encee Medical Center, will help you navigate both hormonal and non-hormonal options to alleviate symptoms or consequences of menopause. Kindly request to see any of our doctors for consultation immediately.
