Perimenopausal & Menopausal Therapy Program

Although perimenopause and menopause represent natural stages in a woman’s life, some women may find the common symptoms of this stage burdensome to the point of affecting their quality of life.  

On average, women experience menopause at age 51. Approximately 1% of women experience “premature” menopause, which occurs before age 40. (Menopause is considered “early”—but not premature—when it happens after age 40 but before 45.) Some medical conditions, such as autoimmune disorders, and some treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and ovarian surgeries, may increase the risk of early or premature menopause. Both premature and early menopause can be particularly burdensome—not only are the physical symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness) more severe, but the psychological distress that accompanies an early onset of menopause can be particularly stressful, especially for women who may not have met their fertility goals.

Our team of clinicians is equipped to help optimize the quality of life and health of the reproductively aging population of women by addressing their symptom burden, as well as identifying and minimizing their long-term health risks (such as osteoporosis or fractures).

Our team is equally responsive to the reproductive needs and goals of our patients. Our Fertility Preservation Program addresses the needs of those who require treatments that may result in ovarian compromise or early ovarian failure. Our Third-Party Reproduction Program is committed to helping women with premature and early menopause meet their fertility goals through the use of donor eggs or gestational surrogacy.

Our clinicians strive to serve our perimenopausal and menopausal patients’ immediate medical needs while also anticipating and reducing the risk of health problems that may arise in the future.
