Dr. Constant-Peter knows that menopause is a natural biological process when your body no longer menstruates or has the ability to conceive. However, menopause can disrupt your sleep, your energy level and even trigger feelings of sadness to an overwhelming and problematic degree.

Our medical team is specially trained to help you through the physical and emotional effects as your body goes through menopause. Some of the symptoms you might experience include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Decreased fertility
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Hot flashes
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Mood swings
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Thinning hair
  • Loss of breast fullness

These changes occur over a period of months or years and can be subtle. You don’t have to suffer through menopause.

In addition to recommending lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise, Dr. Constant-Peter can help you with your symptoms with:

  • Hormone therapy to replace estrogen.
  • Low-dose antidepressants to help with emotional fluctuations.
  • Medications to replace or prevent bone loss, or osteoporosis.
  • Vaginal estrogen to relieve vaginal dryness, discomfort with intercourse, and some urinary symptoms.
