About Menopause

Common menopausal symptoms — such as hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness — have a significant effect on millions of women every day. Stillwater Medical Group's physicians provide guidance to offer you relief from these symptoms allowing you a better sense of health and well-being.

Menopause is a time in a woman's life when she stops having menstrual periods. The years leading up to this point are called perimenopause or "around menopause." Menopause marks the end of the reproductive years that began puberty.

The average age that women go through menopause is 51 years old. With sound medical advice and menopausal treatment by Stillwater Medical Group physicians, women can continue living an active and healthy lifestyle.
