Menopause Management

Menopause has a reputation for being mysterious and impossible to predict. While random in the way it affects our bodies, we know a lot about menopause and how to deal with the various symptoms associated with it. Here at Doylestown Women’s Health Center, we believe that women don’t need to fear menopause or be in the dark about what it means. As long as you speak to a menopause doctor, you can help feel more prepared and confident altogether. Check out our quick guide to menopause and how an ob-gyn or menopause doctor can help you manage your symptoms.

How To Recognize Menopause

While menopause affects everybody’s body differently, that does not mean that the symptoms are completely random. Our gynecologists in Bucks County have been helping women through their menopause symptoms for years and have a wealth of professional medical knowledge surrounding the subject. Here are some of the symptoms that you can expect with menopause, and which you may come to experience between the ages of 40 to 60:

  • Night sweats
  • Notable changes in mood
  • Hot flashes
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Vaginal dryness

How To Manage Your Menopause Symptoms

Seeing an OBGYN before or during menopause can help you manage your symptoms and give you the support that you need. Our medical professionals are equipped to give you comprehensive and holistic care that will help you go through menopause. Here are some of the solutions and treatments that we offer at Doylestown Women’s Health Center:

  • Hormone Therapy:

    Hormone therapy uses a mixture of progesterone and estrogen to mitigate menopause symptoms and balance the hormonal swings that are happening in your body. Available in pill, cream, and patch form, hormone therapy isn’t suitable for everybody so make sure to talk to your OBGYN before you choose this treatment.
  • Vaginal Estrogen Therapy:

    Vaginal estrogen therapy is typically used to treat vaginal dryness or itching but does not address other menopause symptoms. This hormone therapy is localized specifically to the vagina and does not spread to other parts of the body.
  • Lifestyle and Health Changes

    Studies have shown that cutting back on junk food, increasing exercise, and avoiding excess stress can all reduce the symptoms of menopause, and our menopause doctors can help counsel you to make these lifestyle changes. While this kind of treatment can vary in effectiveness, certainly that it will not make your menopause symptoms worse.
