Our Menopause Specialists Treat Hot Flashes & other Symptoms
Menopause is diagnosed after you’ve gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Most women go through menopause between ages 45 – 55, but the average age is 51 in the United States. Although menopause is a natural biological process, the physical symptoms and emotional/mood symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy, affect your work and ability to concentrate, be embarrassing at times, affect emotional health and relationships. The good news is that there are many effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone therapy. Please contact Dr. Fleming as she will be able to help you navigate this often challenging time of your life.
For non-hormonal treatments of hot flashes, Dr. Fleming is here to provide tips to use, including eating a healthy diet, exercising and practicing good sleep habits.
Estrogen is the most effective treatment of hot flashes and night sweats. We provide consultation services for those considering hormone replacement therapy.
