Modern Therapy’s Hormone Replacement Therapy doesn’t only target hormonal imbalance among women during the menopausal stage. Our ultimate goal is to reduce the risk of various chronic conditions that may affect postmenopausal women. Our therapy is specifically designed to also lower, if not eliminate, women’s risk of diabetes, osteoporosis, bowel cancer, cardiovascular disease, and many more.
Menopause is the complete cessation of menstruation and gradual shutting down of the female reproductive system. The word menopause literally means the permanent physiological, or natural, cessation of menstrual cycles. In other words, menopause is the natural and permanent stopping of the monthly female reproductive cycles and in human females who still have a uterus.
Menopause is a normal, natural event—defined as the final menstrual period and usually confirmed when a woman has missed her periods for 12 consecutive months (in the absence of other obvious causes). Menopause is associated with reduced functioning of the ovaries due to aging, resulting in lower levels of estrogen and other hormones. It marks the permanent end of fertility. Menopause occurs, on average, at age 51. The years between puberty (when periods start) and menopause are called pre-menopause.
