Has menopause got you down?

stethoscopeOur certified menopause specialists can help restore your quality of life

Nearly all women go through menopause, but no two women experience menopause the same way. For some, an occasional hot flash is the worst symptom, while others may experience an extensive list of symptoms including mood swings, memory loss, weight gain and sleep disturbances. And while menopause is a natural part of life, it doesn’t mean you have to sit and suffer the side effects or resort to alternative treatment options that may not be right (and, in fact, could be dangerous) for you.

Effective menopause treatment is highly individualized and therefore requires a patient-focused, evidence-based approach to care. That’s why, several years ago, the nation’s leading menopause organization—the North American Menopause Society (NAMS)—set standards to ensure the highest quality of care for women at menopause and beyond. Licensed healthcare providers who demonstrate expertise in the field and pass the NAMS menopause competency exam are awarded the credential of NAMS Certified Menopause Practitioner (NCMP).

Providers with the NCMP credential specialize in midlife women’s health and menopause medicine. They work with you to ensure you stay healthy and maintain the highest quality of life during the menopause transition.

Here at the Women’s Center, we have five certified menopause practitioners: Drs. Susan StegmanMaria Wright and Lisa Larkin, and nurse practitioners Anna Fox and Catherine Geering . Menopause is a complex health issue, where the “one-size-fits-all” model doesn’t work. Having a practitioner who is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of menopause can lead to better outcomes. And a practitioner who is knowledgeable about other health concerns like cancer survivorship, sleep, nutrition and the brain—and how those interrelate with menopause—is a practitioner you want. To schedule an appointment with one of our NAMS providers, please call (513) 475-UC4U.
