FAQs

Women’s services specialists provide care tailored to meet your needs at every stage of life, including menopause. During this time, a specialist can provide you with guidance and treatment to manage symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and weight gain, as well as the risk for developing conditions that can occur when menopause begins, such as heart disease and osteoporosis.

Natural menopause occurs in three stages: perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause. Menopause officially begins when a woman has not had a menstrual period for one year. The typical age to begin menopause is 51. Once the ovaries stop releasing eggs, the woman has entered menopause.

Perimenopause is a transitional period where the body starts producing less estrogen. You can still become pregnant during perimenopause, but may often experience an irregular period, hot flashes and other common symptoms. Perimenopause typically begins in a woman’s 40s but can start during the 30s or earlier.

The final stage of menopause is postmenopause. At this stage, a menstrual period has not occurred for several years. Hormone levels remain low, and women can no longer become pregnant or experience a monthly period. Postmenopause comes with an increased risk for osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, mental health conditions and changes in vaginal health.
