Women’s Health Dr. Jennifer Neville What is menopause? I definitely have a lot of patients that are
kind of going through the perimenopausal/menopausal. First, it’s kind of “what is menopause?” A lot of times women don’t know when am I
there, how do I know. So it’s actually twelve months without a period. That’s kind of when you entered menopause. How can you help treat changing hormones? You know a lot of different things can happen
when you’re having hormones changed. We kind of go through all those symptoms. You know, there’s medications we can use to
kind of help handle that if if the patient’s having some problems, but there’s also some
different things we can do without medications too. What kind of preventive care do you provide
for women? You know, I handle paps. So I do paps, I do breast exams. Making sure they’ve had their mammogram is
really important and then at 65 we started doing bone density scans and looking for osteoporosis. So that’s something else that’s important.
