Menopause may be a natural process, but that doesn’t mean you should have to go through it alone. At Carolina OB/GYN, our five female board-certified physicians are sympathetic to what you are experiencing and can help you handle your symptoms. Whether that means hormone therapy, medications, natural remedies, or the latest technology like the MonaLisa Touch™, you can rely on our team of experts to provide the personalized treatment you need and deserve.
When most women think about menopause, symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats come to mind. However, post-menopausal women are often reluctant to mention more private symptoms like vaginal itching, burning, and dryness, which can profoundly impact their quality of life and intimate relationships. The MonaLisa Touch™ uses advanced laser technology to provide a fast and minimally invasive solution to symptoms caused by the genitourinary syndrome of menopause. In addition, we will ensure that you are getting all of the proper health screenings to help keep you in optimal health as you enter the best years of your life.
Many women are also bothered by symptoms like mood swings, fatigue, insomnia, depression and weight gain. These symptoms are often overlooked by traditional therapies, but contribute significantly to making the transition uncomfortable.
No one understands a woman’s body more than another woman. At Carolina OB/GYN, we’ve been offering Compassionate Care for Women by Women, since 1988.
