Your gynecologist near Munster is a valuable resource after menopause

In the years leading up to and after menopause, a woman’s body experiences a number of changes. Though just more than a quarter of perimenopausal and postmenopausal women describe this stage of life as rather uneventful, the large majority experience a variety of symptoms to varying degrees. The experience you have during the years surrounding menopause will be unique to you, and your gynecologist is here to see you through it.

Dr. Stanley Friedell, Northwestern Women's Health Associates S.C gynecologist near Munster is a valuable resource after menopause

Northwestern Women’s Health Associates, provides every level of care to patients from the Chicago area and from areas including Munster, Michigan City, and more. As you transition from one phase of reproductive health to another, we listen to your concerns and offer advice that will meet your changing needs. Gynecologic care is vital to women who enter menopause naturally as well as for those who experience menopause because of a surgical procedure. With our team, you receive ongoing health care from a team you know and trust.

Routine health care addressing specific needs

Throughout the change of life during which menstruation ends, a vital part of maintaining a high quality of life is routine gynecologic care. Fluctuations in hormone levels can lead to a number of secondary concerns, including the challenge of maintaining a healthy body weight, painful intercourse, and an increased risk of bone loss. Well-woman visits are scheduled to give you time to discuss changes in your physical and sexual health. During routine consultations and exams, we can order specific lab work and testing to measure bone density and other important data.

Menopause does not have to be a completely unpleasant experience. We partner with patients of our women’s health practice to institute positive change through healthy diet and exercise habits as well as over-the-counter or prescription medication as needed.

Due to the complexity of hormones and menopause, multiple forms of therapy exist to usher a woman gracefully into her next stage of life. Some of our patients may benefit from supplementation to support bone health while others may require treatment to diminish symptoms such as hot flashes or insomnia. As we monitor the health of each patient closely, we can come to accurate conclusions about needs and adjust as necessary as hormones continue to change.

Menopause does not affect only the body, it is a condition intrinsically tied to your physical and emotional wellbeing. Find the solutions you need in our friendly Chicago practice. Call 312-440-9400 today.
