Menopause In Jackson, WY
As women approach their mid-40s or 50s they may begin to notice certain physical changes. These changes are often the result of a shift into menopause, a transitional phase of life in which a woman no longer gets her period and is no longer able to bear children. Menopause happens to all women, and while some women may transition into menopause without problems; often, women deal with night sweats, mood swings, anxiety, and other issues as a result. Fortunately, our OBGYNs at Jackson Hole Care for Women provide a variety of ways to help women get their menopausal symptoms under control.

How we treat menopause varies from patient to patient. There are many factors we need to consider first before creating a treatment plan designed to help you feel your optimal best during menopause. Most treatment options involve lifestyle changes such as regular exercise and dietary changes, but if lifestyle modifications aren’t enough (or symptoms are too severe), we offer other treatment options including supplementation and hormonal replacement therapy. We can also provide referrals to mental health professionals who can help you with depression, anxiety, or other mental health problems you may be dealing with during menopause.
