Perimenopause and Menopause
Perimenopause and menopause are the transitions your body makes in midlife. Even though your body transitions gradually, the symptoms can feel anything but gradual as your body prepares to stop menstruating and producing female hormones.
Often called the "change of life," perimenopause and menopause can last for several years so it's good to know what to expect emotionally and physically. Geisinger's Women's Health specialists are available to help you recognize the symptoms and learn about menopause-related connections to heart disease and osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis, sometimes called the "brittle bone disease," is caused by a loss of bone density that can result in bones being able to snap easily with just the slightest bump or brush against an object.
To identify and prevent this disease, Geisinger offers mobile DXA scanning (dual X-ray screening to measure bone mineral loss) at several of our locations, as well as ultrasounds. By identifying risk early and taking advantage of current treatments and preventative measures, Geisinger specialists can help you prevent future bone loss and help you continue to enjoy an active quality of life.
Geisinger specialists are available to care for the full spectrum of services relating to women's health issues. From innovative procedures to top-notch providers, Geisinger can help you every step of the way.
Geisinger offers a full range of breast, women's heart and skin care services, from preventive (including education) to diagnostic to treatment and follow-up care.
