Menopause is a term used to describe the period in a woman's life when she stops menstruating. Menopause is usually identified after an individual has gone a full year without having a period. While it typically develops around the age of 50 for many women, it can happen at nearly any age. Menopause can't be delayed or stopped, and it often causes many difficult symptoms for patients. At Lawrence Family Practice Center, our skilled physicians take special care when it comes to women's health and work with each patient to help manage or reduce menopause symptoms. If you think you may be entering menopause or haven't had a period in a while, contact our team in Lawrence, KS to take early measures and control your symptoms.
