Susan was among several Twin Cities providers who were interviewed regarding this often frustrating period in a woman's life. We are happy to be part of the community of helping women transition. 

 

"Over the years, women have demanded relief for perimenopause symptoms and they seek out providers who will understand and help them,” says Halloran. “A woman cannot fulfill self-actualization when she is trying to just feel well. So, ask for help, demand help, and get help so you feel well.”

Women live with menopausal symptoms on average one to 10 years, so finding ways to combat symptoms or alleviate them is critical."

What does wellness mean? For many hormone users and those that research women as they transition through menopause, quality-of-life standards have been studied at length. Feeling well is hard to define and different for every woman. Knowing that as hormones fluctuate and change and are linked to our entire body's physical and mental functioning and thus well-being, has been the emphasis of many studies validating what women report. " I feel low energy, I am moody and irritable, I don't sleep well, my weight is increasing, my libido is gone and it hurts to have sex, etc."  Though hard to scientifically measure, wellness is all-encompassing on how a women feels from day-to-day.  Hormonal therapy has been found to help women ease their symptoms of the menopause transitions.

Credentials for health care providers can be confusing so we thought we  would give a quick explanation as our providers are APRN, CNP, WHNP, NCMP.

APRN - Advanced Practice Registered Nurse
     A Registered Nurse (RN) that has additional education to become a Nurse Practitioner.

CNP - Certified Nurse Practitioner
     Certification through NCC (National Certification Corporation) as a  WHNP -  Women's Health Nurse Practitioner

NCMP - NAMS Certified Menopause Provider 
       Certification through NAMS - North American Menopause Society; The scientific-based, research organization that develops clinical guidelines and sets the standards for menopause practices. 

We hope this is helpful and sorting through the alphabet soup that assures you that we are specialized to help you!

Per NAMS (North American Menopause Society); continuation of hormone therapy for women aged 65 years and older should be considered on an individual basis, with joint discussion and decision making between a woman and her healthcare provider. Hormone therapy’s safety profile is most favorable when it is initiated by women within 10 years of menopause onset or when aged younger than 60 years. The most frequent considerations for extended use of systemic hormone therapy are persistent VMS (hot flashes), prevention of bone loss and fractures,  maintenance of QOL (quality-of-life) , and for low-dose vaginal estrogen, to prevent or treat vaginal dryness and pain with sexual activity. As always,  a regular review of risks and benefits is needed yearly or if changes in your health occur.  So GOOD news for women who are wondering about how long they can use hormone therapy!!  Follow our posts to keep informed on the latest recommendations.
