Menstrual abnormalities may occur from puberty through menopause. This would include skipping cycles, too frequent of cycles, longer and heavier cycles, painful cycles, and the emotional and mental aberrations associated with each cycle. Menopause is the time when the ovaries cease to function and there is little to no hormone production. Until that actually happens a woman may go through a period of erratic ovarian function that may cause numerous symptoms.
There are hormonal and non-hormonal therapies available to help a woman through any of these times in her life. We at Creekside Women's Care feel that one of the most important qualities a health care professional can have is the art of listening, so we can better understand the significance of what the patient is experiencing.
