Menopause treatment - Rejuvenate Health Center


Menopause is a natural transition that all women go through as they age, marking the end of a woman's reproductive years. The average age of menopause is 51, but it can occur anytime between the ages of 40-58. As a woman approaches menopause, hormone levels fluctuate and decline, leading to symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, mood changes, and more.

While menopause is inevitable, the symptoms can greatly impact a woman's quality of life. Thankfully, there are many effective treatments available today to relieve symptoms and help women transition comfortably into this new phase of life. At Rejuvenate Health Center, our caring providers specialize in individualized menopause treatment plans to optimize hormone balance and provide symptom relief.

Signs and Symptoms of Menopause

The leading sign of perimenopause and menopause is a change in menstrual cycles. Periods may become irregular, heavier, or lighter as ovulation becomes less frequent. Other common symptoms include:

These symptoms vary in frequency and severity between women. Other possible symptoms include fatigue, memory problems, weight gain, headaches, joint pain, heart palpitations, and loss of breast fullness.

Relieve menopause symptoms, consult our caring providers.

Causes of Menopause

Menopause occurs due to the natural depletion of ovarian follicles in a woman's body over time. As we age, the ovaries gradually lose their ability to produce crucial reproductive hormones like estrogen and progesterone.

Perimenopause is the 2-10 year transition period leading up to menopause, when hormone levels fluctuate erratically. This hormonal instability is what causes the various symptoms. Menopause is reached when a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a period. At this point the ovaries have stopped releasing eggs and her hormone levels (estrogen and progesterone) have declined significantly.

Health Risks of Menopause

The hormonal changes of menopause come with increased risks to long-term health if left untreated:

Health Risk Reason
Osteoporosis Lower estrogen accelerates bone loss, increasing fracture risk
Heart disease Declining estrogen is associated with higher cholesterol and blood pressure
Diabetes The risk of developing diabetes increases for menopausal women
Weight gain Shifting hormones often cause fat accumulation in the abdomen
Mood disorders Hormone changes can trigger depression and anxiety

That's why timely evaluation and individualized treatment is so important for women in perimenopause and postmenopause. Our providers at Rejuvenate Health Center can help assess risks, provide screening and monitoring, and craft therapies to protect long-term health.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) restores depleted hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone to healthy, pre-menopause levels. When dosed properly, HRT can:

At Rejuvenate Health Center, we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy - using plant-derived hormones identical to those naturally produced in the body. This maximizes treatment benefits while minimizing risks. We also provide compounded HRT formulations customized to each woman's needs and preferences.
