Menopause is something almost every woman will experience in her lifetime, and an estimated 6,000 women reach menopause in the U.S. each day. However, despite its prevalence, menopause and its symptoms are not often discussed due to the stigma around this natural part of a woman’s life. Because of this, many women may think they need to suffer through the symptoms they’re experiencing in silence, and that there are no options for relief.

Some of the most common menopause symptoms women experience are hot flashes, mood swings, dryness and itching. These may affect not just the woman experiencing them, but her partner as well, as they can lead to a loss of intimacy, another symptom of menopause. While these can be uncomfortable, there are treatment options available to help alleviate these symptoms and allow women to enjoy their lives without being hindered by menopause.

Just in time for World Menopause Day on October 18, Dr. Falguni Patel, OB/GYN, is available to discuss some of the most common misconceptions around menopause, including the questions she is most frequently asked by her patients, the symptoms patients most often wish they could alleviate, and available treatment options to help address these symptoms, such as CO2RE®Intima. CO2RE Intima is a simple, quick and effective procedure that is one of the latest innovations in vaginal therapy helping women with their intimate wellness, particularly with issues surrounding menopause. Women can learn more about this treatment option at www.co2reintima.com.
