The Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology provides leading care for all patients experiencing menopause, the process in which you stop having menstrual cycles for 12 months and are no longer able to become pregnant.
Our gynecologists understand that menopause and menopause symptoms — including hot flashes — can negatively impact your daily life. We are here to help minimize uncomfortable symptoms and improve your long-term health.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, we are passionate about helping patients enjoy a full, healthy active life during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause.
Menopause affects everyone differently, making it important to receive care from a trained gynecologist who is committed to understanding and improving your individual symptoms.
During your visits, you and your gynecologist will discuss your symptoms and develop a unique treatment plan to minimize discomfort. Next, you will discuss ways to improve your overall health and well-being for many years to come.
Treatment options for menopause symptoms: If, at any stage, menopause causes you discomfort, treatment is available. You do not need to live with discomfort.
You and your gynecologist will discuss all treatment options, including hormone therapies, lifestyle changes, self-care strategies, nutritional changes, vaginal lubricants, strategies to improve sleep and reduce stress, as well as non-hormonal prescription medications.
Integrated care: An increasing body of research shows that integrative health practices — when used collaboratively with your physician’s care plan — can improve menopausal symptoms and increase long-term health.
The experts at the Weill Cornell Medicine Integrative Health and Well-Being Program can offer you guidance about nutrition, herbal supplements and plant-based hormones. The team also offers acupuncture, mind-body therapies and relaxation technique training.
In addition to causing uncomfortable symptoms, menopause can also lead to changes in your metabolism, digestion, bone density and cardiovascular health.
To promote your long-term well-being, your gynecologist will monitor your health closely. Based on your medical history, lifestyle goals and overall health, your gynecologist will determine if you will benefit from osteoporosis screening, specialized cardiovascular care or other specialized care.
