Treating Menopause in Andrews, TX

Most women begin to experience changes that signal the stage of life known as menopause sometime in their mid- to late 40s and early 50s. In the United States, the average age is 51. Menopause, commonly referred to as “the change of life” is that period when female menstrual cycles cease due to changing reproductive hormones and reduction of estrogen. At Andrews Family Medicine, we diagnose menopause after a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without having a menstrual period. The months leading up to menopause (called perimenopause) may bring a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes & chills
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Mood changes
  • Weight gain & slowed metabolism
  • Thinning hair & dry skin
  • Loss of breast fullness

Every woman’s menopause symptoms are different. You may have all, some or none of the above symptoms. You will likely experience irregularity in the timing or length of your periods before they end completely with menopause onset.
