Until recently, menopause was thought of as part of growing older, an ending of sorts. But now many women as well as the medical community are approaching it differently. Menopause may mark the end of your child-bearing years, but it also offers new freedoms. And while there’s no denying menopause symptoms and other midlife women’s health issues can be challenging, the road can be much less bumpy if your doctor has the proper training and experience to deal with these issues.

Midlife women’s health is our specialty

Our primary care providers (PCPs) are uniquely qualified to treat the many potential short-term and long-term health consequences associated with menopause and midlife, including the physical, emotional and sexual symptoms of low estrogen levels.  And even if menopause and midlife don’t have dramatic health consequences for you, we’ll be by your side educating you about the appropriate health screenings you should have, talking to you about your risks for certain diseases, and working with you to develop strategies to stay healthy or to become healthier.

We’re very proud that many of our PCPs have or are currently pursuing advanced credentialing to be certified menopause practitioners through the North American Menopause Society (NAMS). NAMS is North America’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the health and quality of life of all women during midlife and beyond through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging.

Take control of your life

Midlife is a time when you’ll be making important decisions about your health. Take the time to get a good understanding of your medical history and your body. Most importantly, educate yourself about menopause and midlife women’s health issues. Those who approach menopause fully informed are more likely to understand the changes taking place and move forward positively. To schedule an appointment with one of our midlife specialists, please call (513) 475-UC4U.
