Continuity of Care Through All Phases of a Woman's Life
When a woman stops menstruating, she enters a natural phase of life called menopause. For some women, the experience of menopause is unremarkable, but for many, the symptoms of menopause can have a significant impact on quality of life and well-being. With the right care, there are many ways to address the disruptive symptoms that come with menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, sleep disruption, mood and cognitive problems, and urinary incontinence.
At ColumbiaDoctors, gynecologic care does not end after a patient’s childbearing years. Advice and support on lifestyle adjustments and consideration of hormone therapy are important parts of supporting your health and well-being through the years of life during and following menopause. In fact, menopause presents a major opportunity to identify risks and initiate strategies to prevent potential chronic disease, including diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease, dementia, and cancer. Our gynecologists are committed to your care through all phases of life, including these important years.
