Menopause is considered to have occurred when your period stops for 12 consecutive months. The average age of menopause in the United States is 51.3 years. In general, menopause is a natural process but can occur prematurely in some women. At OC Women’s Care, we understand this delicate stage of a women’s life when your body is going through a lot of unexpected changes. Some of these changes may include:
- Hot flashes and/or night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings/irritability
- Changes in your period
- Trouble sleeping
- Trouble focusing
Some of these symptoms may require treatment. If you are experiencing any of the above changes or if you think you are entering menopause, Dr. Sedaghat is the doctor you want to see.
