Women and Menopause
Menopause affects every woman. It can be one of the biggest challenges and puzzles that a woman has to sort through. Whether you talk to friends, sisters, or mothers, you soon realize that no one experiences menopause in quite the same way. You may be noticing different symptoms such as hotflashes, mood changes, sleep disturbances, dryness, or just not feeling like yourself. Other women have to address their changing menstrual cycles or the possibility of starting hormonal therapy or other medications to improve their symptoms. If you have questions about menopause, you are not alone. The physicians at Haugen OBGYN are here to help you through this time of transition. We are available to help you decipher your symptoms, understand your experiences, and discuss management options in perimenopause and menopause.
