Menopause - Fremont, CA

Menopause is the time of many changes in your body. Which makes it the ideal time to get screened for cancer and monitor your bone density for signs of osteoporosis. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is commonly used to control the symptoms of menopause and help prevent osteoporosis. There are also various nonhormonal methods of controlling menopausal symptoms.

Make the most out of menopause.

While menopause is an inevitable part of life, it no longer has the negative implications that it once did. Today, there are more ways than ever for helping you feel your absolute best during this time of change – and for the rest of your life. That’s why Shakira B. Karipineni, MD, places a major emphasis on menopause therapy. Her personal, attentive approach lends itself well to menopause management. She will spend time talking about your health status, your lifestyle and your goals for the future. She will even develop a personalized menopause wellness plan that meets your unique needs.

Flexible treatment options.

Our care focuses on minimizing symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, mood swings, memory problems, loss of energy, vaginal dryness and more. Treating these symptoms does not automatically mean a prescription for hormone replacement therapy – far from it. Though it’s still a viable option for some women, there are other ways to handle the fluctuating hormone levels that accompany menopause, while avoiding some of the risks you’ve heard associated with hormone replacement therapy. Plant-based estrogens and herbal supplements can be excellent options for managing many symptoms.
