Menopause Q & A

I'm middle-aged and my periods are irregular; am I in menopause?

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.

How long does it take to go through menopause?

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:

  • hot flashes

  • fatigue

  • moodiness including irritability and depression

  • insomnia

  • night sweats

  • joint pain

  • vaginal dryness

  • change in sex drive

  • bladder leakage

What is hormone replacement therapy?

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.

How can I tell if I'm a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

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.

What is osteoporosis screening?

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.
