What is Menopausal Medicine?
Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle. While menopause is a normal and natural part of a woman’s life, the transition is often accompanied by mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbance, urinary dysfunction, and a host of other unpleasant symptoms.
Some of the most common symptoms of menopause include:
- Mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating
- Decreased libido
- Vaginal dryness
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep
- Pain with intercourse
Fortunately, women no longer have to suffer through these difficulties in silence; menopausal medicine offers numerous hormonal and non-hormonal treatments for these symptoms. At Fort Worth Center for Pelvic Medicine, we offer solutions to address both the internal and external side effects of menopause. The most commonly used are menopausal hormone therapy and MonaLisa Touch®.
Menopausal Hormone Therapy
Hormones influence an incredibly wide range of the body’s physical and mental functions; because of this, fluctuations in hormone levels can have a dramatic impact on a person’s internal and external health. Many of the adverse side effects of menopause are the result of fluctuations in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone hormone levels that occur before, during, and after this biological transition.
With menopausal hormone therapy, many patients can safely improve or resolve these symptoms. The Fort Worth Center for Pelvic Medicine offers a wide variety of options for menopausal hormone therapy tailored to each individual woman’s needs.
Vaginal dryness, loss of sensitivity, and pain during sex are all symptoms that many women experience during menopause. With a short series of non-invasive MonaLisa Touch® treatments, these patients can restore their vaginal health without discomfort or downtime. Each of these treatments take less than five minutes to complete, and bring immediate results that gradually improve over time.
