Menopause occurs when a woman's body no longer produces estrogen and menstrual periods stop. Natural menopause occurs gradually, usually between the ages of 40 and 55. The average age of menopause is 51. Menopause can also occur due to the removal of both ovaries.
The doctors at Capital Women's Care specialize in designing an individualized treatment plan to help you manage this natural part of aging.
Menopause gradually causes changes in your body as the amount of estrogen you produce diminishes over time. Menopause is different for everyone. Some women notice little difference in their bodies or their emotions, while other women have difficulty coping with the symptoms of menopause. The good news is that many of the symptoms of menopause can be controlled with a healthy lifestyle and medication.
