Overview of Menopause

Menopause occurs when a woman’s ovaries stop producing hormones and menstrual periods stop. Menopause comes with physical, emotional, and hormonal changes that can be surprising and unfamiliar to a person experiencing them.

Some symptoms of menopause include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Change in skin conditions (like adult acne)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • and more

We offer hormone therapy (HT), non-hormonal alternatives, and educational resources to help navigate menopause. We are here to help empower you to embrace this new phase of life with confidence and vitality.

Hormone Therapy (HT)

Hormone therapy (HT) is a treatment used to help manage symptoms of menopause by replacing the hormones that decrease during this time. This therapy can include taking pills, patches, or creams containing estrogen and sometimes progesterone.

HT is used to reduce symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness, helping individuals feel more comfortable and balanced during menopause. However, it’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of HT, as it is not safe for everyone.

Post-Menopausal Bleeding

Post-menopausal bleeding refers to any vaginal bleeding that occurs after a person has gone through menopause. While it’s common for women to experience some irregular bleeding in the first year or so before menopause, any bleeding after a year without menses should be evaluated by a healthcare provider.

Post-menopausal bleeding can be caused by various factors, including hormonal changes, vaginal dryness, or more serious conditions such as uterine polyps, endometrial hyperplasia, or even cancer. The specialists at Four Corners OB/GYN are here to ask the right questions and provide an action plan if support is needed.
