What is Menopause?
Menopause signifies a transition into a new phase of a woman's life and can lead to uncomfortable health issues related to overall physical and mental health. At Wahine Health, board-certified gynecologist Dr. Carrie Giordano is ready to help you navigate this new chapter with various menopause management treatments. As your hormone levels, including estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, change during the different stages of menopause, you may start to have a hard time enjoying your life and feeling like your usual self. If you are experiencing symptoms of menopause, contact our office in Wailea, HI to begin the process of managing menopause. Your initial consultation may include an assessment of your current health, your medical history, your family medical history, your current medications, and your lifestyle.
What Happens During Menopause Management?
Wahine Health offers women menopause testing and treatment with alternative therapies. Dr. Giordano may recommend a bioidentical hormone replacement treatment through a hormone pill, patch, topical cream or gel, injections, vaginal suppositories, or pellet therapy. This means that the hormones you receive may be synthetic but will act as your natural hormones would in your body. Using your blood work, Dr. Giordano can set your dosage explicitly to what you need.
Depending on the treatment option you have decided to try, you may need to come in for follow-up visits to ensure your dosage is appropriate. Balancing your hormones can require several blood tests during the course of your treatment. We can monitor your progress through your hormone levels to see if medication needs an adjustment from being too low or too high. These follow-up appointments can be your time to ask questions or voice your concerns about treatment. At Wahine Health, we are pleased to help you along this journey toward better aging and continued wellness.
Dr. G. helped me get my health and my life back while going through a difficult time with menopause. She is not only highly knowledgeable regarding best practices in hormone replacement therapy but she genuinely cares about her patients, she is warm and kind and has a great sense of humor. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for an amazing women’s care provider.
