Midlife & Menopause: Making Your Midlife a Great Life

You might feel hot or sweaty all the time, while your best friend feels nothing out of the ordinary. Though it has common symptoms, menopause can affect every woman differently.

At Holland Hospital, we understand that although menopause is a natural health process—not a disease—its symptoms can disrupt your life. And if you’re bothered by these symptoms, you shouldn’t be embarrassed by them or have to suffer through. Today, there are many effective menopause treatments available, from lifestyle modification to hormone therapies.

Our certified menopause practitioners and women’s health experts are here to help you transition into midlife with as little discomfort and inconvenience as possible. So you can continue to live a healthy, active and fulfilling life.

Dr. Barb DePree, Holland Hospital Women's Specialty Care, talks about menopause treatments and services.

What is Menopause?

Typically occurring between the ages of 45 and 55, menopause is the permanent end of menstruation and fertility. Perimenopause, the time around menopause, often begins many years before your last menstrual cycle. To understand your individual symptoms, a personal evaluation is an excellent first step. You can get answers to all your midlife and menopause questions by scheduling an appointment with one of our women’s health specialists at Holland Hospital Women's Specialty Care.
