Premenopausal and postmenopausal care refers to a group of interventions designated to ameliorate the menopausal transition period. The average menopausal age is 51.4 years but variations are common. As the reproductive function decreases with age, the menses become iregulate and the hormonal levels fluctuate widely. With menopausal instatement the dramatic decrease of estrogen production causes unpleasant hot flashes.
Hormonal therapy may be an answer but the risks/benefits balance has to be carefully assessed and understood by the patient. Multiple worldwide studies have determined a statistical significant increase in breast cancer risk, stroke and cardiac events while the benefit is obvious against hot flushes, osteoporosis and colon cancer prevention. Multiple variations of hormonal and non-hormonal treatment are available today and we encourage you to take advantage of our dedication to find the most suitable strategy individualized for you.
