Menopause & Hormonal
Replacement Therapy

Menopause is a normal and natural event that will occur for all people who have ovaries. It is confirmed when someone has not had a menstrual period for over 12 months in a row. Menopause is caused by reduced functioning of the ovaries which results in lower levels of estrogen. Menopause most often occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 and the average age is 51 years old. Menopause is considered early or premature when it occurs before the age of 40 and this condition is also referred to as primary ovarian insufficiency. Hormonal replacement therapy are prescription medications used most often to treat hot flashes and vaginal dryness associated with menopause.

What is Hormonal Therapy?

Hormonal replacement therapy prescription medications most often include oral, transdermal (with a patch), and vaginal estrogen as well as progestin therapy for people with a uterus. The decision to use hormonal replacement therapy is based on an individual’s personal preferences and related medical considerations. The North American Menopause Society is an excellent resource for information related to menopause.
The term perimenopause refers to the transitional phase that comes before menopause. The perimenopause may last for several years and be associated with shorter or longer menstrual cycles, irregular or heavy bleeding, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms. Ovarian function during the perimenopause is variable and there are many medical options that our clinic can offer to help with perimenopausal symptoms.
