The hormonal changes associated with menopause affect all women, although differently. With all women, ovaries eventually stop producing estrogen, and periods stop. Apart from these changes, there are also many symptoms and side effects associated with menopause. These symptoms can vary but normally include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal laxity, and weight gain.
At Best Self Medical Arts, we offer personalized treatment, support, and some fantastic options for women suffering from menopause. Two options to consider are Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and diVa™ Vaginal Treatments.
What are My Options?
Dr. Geer is a board-certified OB-GYN and offers her patient’s personalized treatments. After your private consultation with Dr. Geer, she will customize your treatment according to your individual goals. Depending on your goals, one treatment option might suit you better than the other.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) aims to restore balance to your hormone levels. Restoring estrogen and progesterone using HRT can reduce many of the symptoms associated with menopause. Synthetically made hormones are used during HRT, and there are many ways to apply them.
HRT creams are available for women who prefer a less-invasive but very effective method. There is also the option of Oral HRT, which is a pill taken once a day, and HRT patches, which are changed weekly or bi-weekly. Each type of HRT may be suited better to different individuals. That’s why it’s so important to have a private consultation before choosing a treatment.
Hormone Replacement Therapy & diVa™ Vaginal Therapy Consultations Available
diVa™ Vaginal Therapy
diVa™ Vaginal Therapy is used to treat the vaginal laxity and dryness associated with menopause. Vaginal laxity reduces sexual experience and can even make sex painful. The procedure uses hybrid fractional laser technology to resurface the layers of the vaginal walls and to stimulate collagen production.
It’s a quick in-office procedure that allows you to go back to your daily life immediately. diVa™ laser therapy allows you to improve symptoms of menopause in just 3 treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. diVa™ Vagina Therapy is often a treatment sought out by women suffering from symptoms of menopause and could be the perfect option for you.
What’s Right for Me?
Every woman and her experience with menopause is unique, so there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The best way to tackle menopause and its symptoms is by having a personalized treatment plan created for you. A personalized consultation with a board-certified OB-GYN like Dr. Geer at Best Self Medical Arts is a great place to start.
Dr. Geer is the best doctor! I drive more than an hour to see her and it is worth it! Having her as a doctor has been live changing. She treats the whole person and sends the time to get real understanding before making suggestions. She treats my mom and sister too and I would recommend her to anyone.
