Hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings, weight gain, and vaginal dryness are among the most common and frustrating signs and symptoms of menopause. But you don’t have to live with those symptoms. There are a variety of remedies available for most menopause symptoms, including hormones, therapies, and natural remedies that can alleviate symptoms and restore your quality of life. Talk with your healthcare provider about what treatment options might work best for you.
Choosing a type of birth control method and monitoring how well it continues to work for you over time is exactly the type of women’s healthcare service that is particularly well-suited for telemedicine. During your virtual visit with your medical provider, you will discuss your family planning goals, as well as your lifestyle and preferences when it comes to contraception. Many contraceptive methods can be prescribed during a telemedicine visit, including birth control pills, the patch, and a vaginal ring.
Yeast infections, caused by an overgrowth of the candida fungus, are one of the most common types of vaginal conditions women experience. Even so, no matter how common it is, it’s never a pleasant experience. Swelling, intense itchiness, irritation, and vaginal discharge are among the most unpleasant symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection.
Your women’s health provider at Show Low Family Clinic will choose the best over-the-counter treatment for you, if that’s all that’s needed. The marketplace today has exploded with choices – and some options are better than others. There are also prescription remedies available that come in the form of pills, creams, ointments, and suppositories, depending on your needs and preferences.
Pelvic Floor Disorders
Your “pelvic floor” is made up of muscles and connective tissue that support organs in the pelvis, such as the bladder, bowel (large intestine), uterus, and vagina.
These muscles weaken over time and can lead to problems such as urinary or fecal incontinence, pain during or after sex, and pelvic organ prolapse (when an organ in the pelvis slips out of place). Pelvic floor disorders are relatively common among older women.
With telemedicine, your provider can review your symptoms and health history, offer insight into some of the most common pelvic floor disorders, and develop a pelvic floor therapy program that utilizes targeted exercises that can help strengthen the muscles in your pelvic floor to help preserve its health and support.
