It’s true that menopause is normal and a natural part of a woman’s aging process. That, of course, doesn’t make it any easier to endure. For many women, the symptoms alone can have a huge impact on quality of life. Irregular periods, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, sleep problems, mood changes, weight gain and slowed metabolism, thinning hair and dry skin all contribute to this change in your life.
But it is important to note that women do have choices entering into the menopause phase of life and we want to help you through that. Lifestages offers a variety of health care options including Hormone Replacement Therapy and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, and explain the benefits and the risks for each patient.

One health risk factor of menopause is osteoporosis, so we take this very seriously and council women to be very proactive when it comes to bone health. To that end, we offer DEXA scans in our office to measure bone density.
We know there are many misconceptions about menopause and most are spread because of little or poor communication. While it’s not always a comfortable topic to broach, we find that some of the best medicine often is honest conversation. Lifestages values open, honest relationships with our patients. Ask us anything. We can help.
