Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health includes medical services to address women's unique challenges, especially as they age. One of the most common challenges is the transition to menopause, the natural end to your childbearing years.

Menopause occurs when your periods stop for 12 consecutive months. The months or years leading up to the end of your period is known as perimenopause. During perimenopause, your body slows down its production of estrogen and other reproductive hormones, which can lead to a hormone imbalance.  

Because your hormones control many of your biological functions, an imbalance can trigger a range of symptoms that interfere with a woman’s quality of life.

Metro Best Health Services provides hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to restore balance in your reproductive hormone levels. Milca, a certified registered nurse practitioner, uses synthetic and bioidentical hormones to relieve your symptoms so you can thrive mentally, physically, and emotionally.

When should I schedule a women’s health consultation?

Schedule a women’s health consultation at Metro Best Health Services if you experience menopause symptoms that lower your quality of life. These symptoms can include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal atrophy (tissue shrinkage)
  • Irregular periods
  • Pain with sex
  • Lack of sex drive
  • Weight gain

A hormone imbalance can also cause mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

Milca provides onsite blood tests to evaluate your reproductive hormone levels. She also completes a physical exam and reviews your personal and family medical history to determine if you’re a candidate for hormone replacement therapy.

What are the benefits of women’s health?
