The Power of Knowledge: Empowering Women Through Menopause

Women’s health is a topic that is often overlooked, but events like the Let’s Talk Menopause ‘menoposyium’ in Chicago are helping to change that narrative. Dr. Judith Joseph MD, a board-certified Psychiatrist, emphasized the importance of sharing knowledge and experiences to strengthen the community of women going through perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. The event brought together renowned menopause experts like Dr. Mary Claire Haver and Dr. Monica Christmas MD to shed light on the various aspects of menopause, including the average age of reaching menopause and the emergence of perimenopause symptoms.

One of the hot topics at the event was hormone therapy, with experts voicing the importance of listening to patients’ symptoms and behaviors rather than relying solely on hormone levels for treatment. Dr. Lisa Larkin MD emphasized the need for empowerment among midlife women to take control of their health and well-being. Hormone therapy was recognized as a viable treatment option for menopause, offering benefits for symptoms like brain fog and night sweats while also improving cardiovascular health.

Dr. Sheryl Kingsberg and Dr. Pauline Maki PHD explored the psychological aspects of menopause, focusing on issues like cognitive decline and sleep disturbances. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was highlighted as a powerful tool for managing anxiety and mood swings, while maintaining good ‘sleep hygiene’ was crucial for a healthy sleep pattern. Addressing genitourinary syndrome and sexual dysfunction during menopause was also emphasized, with experts like Stephanie Prendergast emphasizing the importance of a strong pelvic floor.

Throughout the Let’s Talk Menopause event, the resounding message was empowerment through knowledge. Women were encouraged to advocate for their health and embrace their unique journeys through menopause by sharing stories and expertise. Dr. Sameena Rahman and Dr. Lauren Streicher highlighted the importance of seeking appropriate medical care for sexual health and destigmatizing conversations around intimate symptoms. By coming together and sharing experiences, women can navigate the challenges of menopause with confidence and empowerment.
