The OBGYNs at Princeton Medical Group take care of women from their teenage years through menopause. Menopause is a natural part of the aging process that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. Menopause occurs as a woman’s estrogen levels decline.
The menopausal transition (“perimenopause”) can be a challenging time as you adjust to your changing body. Many women start this transition with skipping periods. Other women can experience hot flashes, night sweats, memory problems, vaginal dryness, low libido, and/or trouble sleeping. This transition can take months and sometimes years before your periods actually stop. When you stop having periods for more than a year, you are considered to be “in menopause.”
Women’s health care needs change throughout their life, and aging well is an important part of health and happiness. The physicians at Princeton Medical Group can help navigate you through your menopausal transition and can offer treatment for your symptoms if they are affecting your quality of life. Please call 609-924-9300 to schedule a consultation with your PMG OBGYN physician.
