Understanding Perimenopause & Menopause

Perimenopause and menopause are natural stages of all women’s lives as they age. But women still often look for help in dealing with the symptoms or investigating potential treatments to make the changes more manageable.

In this video, USF Health physicians Catherine Lynch, MD, and Entidhar Al Sawah, MD, discuss both menopause and perimenopause and the symptoms, which can last several years.

They also talk about how the USF Health Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology can help women alleviate their symptoms through more common medical interventions, lifestyle changes or even hormonal therapy. Importantly, they say patients should always discuss their condition with their doctor and never accept their symptoms as inevitable or too intimate.
