Menopause Management Procedure

(Before, During and After)

Before:

Prior to menopause management, an initial consultation with Dr. Adeeb AlShahrour at the Women’s Health Center of Chicago is essential. During this visit, your medical history, menopause symptoms, and overall health will be evaluated. Dr. AlShahrour will discuss treatment options, including hormone replacement therapy (HRT), non-hormonal approaches, and lifestyle modifications. Appropriate diagnostic tests may be conducted to assess hormone levels and other relevant markers.

During:

Menopause management typically involves hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which can be administered orally, transdermally, or through other routes. HRT may include estrogen alone or a combination of estrogen and progesterone, depending on your unique needs and medical history. The dosage and delivery method will be personalized to optimize symptom relief and ensure safety. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to assess treatment efficacy and adjust the management plan, if necessary.

After:

Following menopause management, close monitoring and regular follow-up visits with Dr. AlShahrour are essential to ensure treatment effectiveness and address any concerns or questions. You will have the opportunity to discuss symptom improvement, side effects, and adjustments to the treatment plan. Ongoing communication and collaboration with the healthcare team will support optimal menopause management and overall well-being.
