Menopause marks the end of your menstrual cycles. You receive your menopause diagnosis after 12 months without a menstrual period. The physical symptoms of menopause include hot flashes and emotional symptoms that can disrupt your sleep and lower your energy. Your OB/GYN will help you discover the best treatment from lifestyle changes to hormone therapy.
Hormonal Replacement Therapy (HRT)
During hormone replacement therapy, your doctor prescribes medications containing female hormones to replace the ones the body no longer makes after menopause. HRT treats common menopausal symptoms, including vaginal discomfort and hot flashes.
