Menopause

For the average woman, middle age marks the beginning of a decline in fertility that ends in menopause, the end of menstruation. 

You are officially considered in menopause when you haven't had a period for 12 consecutive months. The period leading up to menopause, called perimenopause, can last several years. You may miss periods or find that they vary in duration and heaviness, but until the process is complete, you are still fertile and can conceive. 

While no longer having a period can be a relief to many women, this stage in the female reproductive cycle can come with a variety of symptoms and gradual health changes. Our experienced team is dedicated to helping you manage them effectively, with options ranging from lifestyle changes to over-the-counter treatment and hormone replacement therapies
