Is There Anything I Can Do to Minimize the Symptoms of Menopause?

There are almost too many menopause symptoms to count: hot flashes, muscle and joint discomfort, headaches, night sweats, unpredictable bleeding, and more. Menopause can even drive the progression of other conditions, like osteoporosis

There’s not an aspect of your health that menopause doesn’t turn upside down, too, from what’s happening physically to your emotional stability and intimacy with your partner. It’s not uncommon to suffer from anxiety or depression, a lowered ability to focus, disrupted sleep, and vaginal dryness as well. 

At the Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery, we are dedicated to helping you navigate menopause confidently with the least discomfort. Dr. Peter Khamvongsa has years of experience treating many patients with every menopause symptom in the book, and his care is marked by both expertise and sensitivity. 

The confusion of menopause symptoms

The list of menopause symptoms is lengthy, and every woman experiences different symptom combinations and intensities. 

What’s more disconcerting is that some of these symptoms can manifest up to a decade before menopause even begins! This phase is called perimenopause.

Whether you welcome being free of your period or you’re mourning the conclusion of your childbearing years, you’re likely suffering from some symptoms and long for relief. 

One thing is certain: There’s no need to resign yourself to getting through this transition on your own.

Customized treatments can help get you through menopause

Dr. Khamvongsa provides innovative, safe treatments to relieve your menopause symptoms, no matter what they are. 

Hormone replacement therapy is successful for many patients, and Dr. Khamvongsa has seen very positive results for women living with diverse menopausal symptoms like:

The difference with Dr. Khamvongsa’s treatment is that he’s adopted bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which uses plant-derived hormones that are manufactured to be chemically identical to your own hormones. In other words, your body can’t tell the difference between its own hormones and BHRT. 

If you know your body, it’s easy to tell when something’s out of whack. BHRT brings balance back to your hormones, which alleviates so many disruptive menopause symptoms. Dr. Khamvongsa tailors your treatment to your individual needs.
