Menopause San Diego

Menopause occurs when the ovaries no longer release an egg every month and is associated with the end of your menstrual cycles. In fact, menopause is diagnosed after you have gone 12 months without a menstrual period. This is a normal part of female aging and is associated with a sharp decline in production of sex hormones that are naturally produced in your ovaries. Although this is a normal biological process, the symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, vaginal dryness, etc. can be treated to restore your quality of life. Equally important, not treating menopause with hormone replacement therapy substantially increases your risk for heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, poor skin elasticity, decreased muscle tone, weight gain and poor vision. The safest form of hormone replacement therapy is with bioidentical hormones. Learn more about your treatment options by clicking on the following links:
