Many women experience apprehension about the physical effects of menopause—a normal process of aging—but this life transition can usually be managed effectively. 

At Yale Medicine, our physicians are here to help. First, we listen. Then, we explain what is happening during this biological change and go over various treatment and management options. Our researchers have long been leaders in the exploration of many menopause-related topics, including hormone replacement therapy to treatment common symptoms including insomnia, hot flashes and depression. 

"We are at the forefront of understanding menopause, developing new medications and weighing the benefits and risks of new drugs," says Yale Medicine's Hugh Taylor, MD, chair of Yale Medicine Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences.
