ARC Menopause

Book Now

Menopause and perimenopause (the onset of menopausal symptoms such as irregular periods) are transitions in a woman's life cycle. It is not a disease and does not have to be treated. However, some health problems, such as osteoporosis, are associated with low estrogen. (Osteoporosis is a thinning and weakening of the bones.) To treat menopause symptoms and help prevent osteoporosis, your Ob/Gyn physician may recommend lifestyle changes and possibly medication to help you cope with these changes.
