Menopause Treatment & Support
Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops having periods. This can be an emotional time for women and comes with many physical symptoms. Our midwives are here to support you through this significant time in your life.
How to Know You’re Entering Menopause
As you enter your late 40’s, you may experience irregular menstrual cycles as well as mood swings, fatigue, increased premenstrual symptoms, or weight changes. These symptoms are all consistent with perimenopause, the years before menopause. When you have gone 12 months without a period, then menopause has occurred.
Our Approach to Menopause Treatment
Symptoms of menopause can range from none in some women to a multitude of issues in others. Typical symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, vaginal dryness, depression, or trouble with concentration.
There are different approaches to handling the symptoms of menopause, including diet, exercise, and hormone replacement therapy. The providers at Northern Colorado Women’s Wellness are all female and some have personal experience with the symptoms of menopause, so they truly understand what you’re experiencing. As a small, independent practice, we pride ourselves on knowing our patients as individuals and working closely together to with our patients to provide any needed emotional support or treatment of menopause symptoms.
