Menopause Management in Arlington Heights
Comprehensive Care for a Woman’s Transitional Phase
Menopause is a transitional phase that can be an easy change for some women. For others, they may experience great difficulty. As a woman’s ovaries stop producing hormones, this can lead to changes in many body systems and the development of new problems. At our Arlington Heights obstetrics and gynecology center, we are experienced in addressing these new concerns. In addition to evaluating and treating heavy periods, we can address the concerns many women have but don’t talk about such as sexual functioning or urinary incontinence.
We offer Urodynamics testing in the office, which provides the following benefits:
- Helps us to diagnose which type of urinary incontinence you patient may have
- Treats an “overactive” bladder with medication
- Strengthens muscles through surgery to prevent leaking urine with coughing or running
At Northwest Professional Obstetrics & Gynecology, we continue with preventive care during menopause as well. The emphasis is now on screening for specific diseases that increase with age such as breast cancer and osteoporosis. We can conduct a mammography in the office to diagnose a variety of conditions. With our state-of-the-art bone density machine, we can screen for osteoporosis and much more.
