Menopause brings a whole host of new health concerns for women. Dr. Silver uses the most advanced techniques combined with a compassionate approach to help patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, feel confident about their care and their lives.
That depends on lots of factors – especially your age. Irregular periods can be caused by many medical conditions, including tumors. The best way to know if your irregular periods are being caused by menopause or by some other condition is to schedule an evaluation as soon as possible.
Menopause is defined as being without a period for 12 consecutive months. Many women have symptoms of menopause for a year or more before their period finally stops, while some women have few or no symptoms. Menopause-related symptoms can include:
moodiness including irritability and depression
change in sex drive
During menopause, the body's natural production of estrogen and progesterone drops considerably. Hormone replacement therapy helps make up for hormone losses to reduce symptoms associated with lower levels of hormones, as well as help reduce the risks for some conditions like osteoporosis.
Dr. Silver will complete a comprehensive exam and take a detailed health history to help determine if hormone replacement therapy might be a good option. He'll also review all the potential risks and benefits so you feel confident in the choice you make.
During menopause, women typically are at an increased risk for developing osteoporosis, a condition in which bones become more brittle and more prone to fractures. Osteoporosis screening uses bone density measurements to determine if you might be at an increased risk for fracture so Dr. Silver can help you take necessary steps to help manage your condition and avoid brittle bones.
