The end of the menstrual cycle does not have to mean the end of your youth or sexuality or a perpetual series of physical changes that disrupt your normal activities and sense of well-being. Recent developments in hormone replacement therapy that treat hormonal imbalance during menopause have given new solutions to women who all face physiological changes in their later years. At James River Obstetrics & Gynecology, you are not alone in this journey. Our ob/gyn doctors are hormone replacement specialists who have managed thousands of women in different menopause stages, helping and guiding them through each transition.
If you’re approaching menopause, we educate you about what to expect, how to manage the symptoms, what the risks are, and the options available to ease the transition. Women often experience physical symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats, decreased sexuality, and mood swings when they stop menstruating. We help women cope with the physical and psychological effects of menopause via hormone replacement therapy and non-hormone therapy and other lifestyle modifications.
It is important to see your doctor during the perimenopause and postmenopause stages for preventive healthcare, as other medical conditions may accompany aging and aggravate menopausal symptoms.
Menopause is not the time to stop enjoying life, it is the time to turn over a new leaf in life. For questions about hormonal imbalance symptoms, their causes, and treatment, get the answers straight from our hormone therapy specialists. Call us in Richmond today at 804.272.5508.
