Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Offers Menopause Medicine

Posted Date: 2/13/2024
Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital offers specialized menopause medicine through specialist and OB-GYN, Dr. Carolyn Moyers.

As women approach middle age, they may begin to experience changes in their menstrual cycles, mood swings, hot flashes, and other symptoms that are associated with perimenopause. Unfortunately, many women are not aware of the condition and do not receive the appropriate diagnosis or treatment for their symptoms. 

Perimenopause is a transitional stage that occurs before menopause. Menopause is defined as the point in time when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. After that one day, she is postmenopausal.

Perimenopause can last for 7-10 years and during this time, hormone levels fluctuate, which can result in a range of symptoms that are often mistaken for other health conditions. The average age of menopause is 51 and perimenopausal symptoms can start between 35 - 45 years of age.

“I believe in empowering women with the knowledge and resources they need to navigate this transitional phase of life with confidence and comfort,” said Dr. Moyers. “Whether a patient is seeking guidance on hormone therapy, exploring alternative treatments, or simply looking for support and understanding, I’m here to provide personalized solutions tailored to their needs.”

Dr. Moyers is a Menopause Society Certified Practitioner (MSCP). MSCPs undergo rigorous training and examination to specialize in menopause care. MSCP certification involves extensive study of current data and best practices in menopause treatment, ensuring that patients receive the highest standard of care. Furthermore, MSCPs like Dr. Moyers are committed to staying up to date with the latest developments in menopause research through continuous medical education.

If you suspect you are in perimenopause, you should see a qualified medical professional for a complete medical examination. The diagnosis of perimenopause can usually be made by reviewing medical history, menstrual history, and signs and symptoms.

“At Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, we are fully equipped to care for women at any stage and any age,” said Kevin Stalnaker, Chief Administrative Officer of Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital. “Offering close-to-home, expert women’s care has always been a priority for our hospital, and we are proud of this addition.”
