As you look for possible treatments for your symptoms, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Every website has different information and it may seem that your friends/family members might not agree with your treatment decisions. Here are some of the basic options listed below to help guide you in your journey.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau
Is you research this part of your journey, you will reach information overload. There are multiple websites devoted to menopause physiology and menopause treatments. You will find that friends, family members and even random acquaintances will give you their opinions as to what you should do. We encourage all of our patients to do their own investigation and find out what works for them. This helps us to facilitate the best treatment options for you. Here are a few resources we like to use.
