At Lifeline Hospital’s Menopause Clinic, we specialize in addressing severe menopause symptoms and managing menopause when complicated by other medical conditions. Postmenopausal individuals often face an increased risk of health issues, including osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, urinary incontinence, and weight gain. Through appropriate medications and lifestyle adjustments, we can significantly reduce the risk of these conditions.
What is Menopause?
Menopause marks a significant stage in a woman’s life when her body concludes its monthly menstrual cycle—a natural part of the aging process that signals the cessation of fertility. Typically occurring in one’s late 40s to early 50s, menopause is medically defined as a complete year without menstrual bleeding, in the absence of any medical conditions or surgical interventions that might artificially halt bleeding or involve the removal of the ovaries.
