In most cases, menopause is a normal part of aging. In some cases, it can come early because of other causes such medication, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a hysterectomy or other surgery.
Menopause, especially when it comes early, can bring increased risk of osteoporosis or thinning of the bones.
Physicians affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital suggest a variety of ways for patients to manage symptoms and live more comfortably with menopause. We strive to find the right balance of lifestyle changes and medications to help each patient more healthy and comfortably.
