Genitourinary Health and Menopause

Our menopause providers and partnered urogynecologists evaluate and treat people of all ages, but especially those in perimenopause and menopause.  Due to the drop in estrogen levels, there are progressive changes in the vaginal, vulvar, and bladder area leading to pH changes and tissue thinning with decreased elasticity and strength. Many suffer from an increase in lower urinary tract symptoms such as overactive bladder, incontinence, more frequent urinary tract infections, or symptoms similar to a bladder infection without an actual infection. Others experience a loss of pelvic organ support that is perceived as a dropped uterus or bladder and pain. We are dedicated to addressing your needs as it relates to the pelvic floor and the function of the bladder and vagina. We will discuss appropriate treatments including hormonal and non-hormonal medications, lifestyle and dietary changes, procedures, and pelvic floor exercises that can be effective in restoring function and comfort.
