Menopause FAQ

Over his years in practice, David W. Kunz, MD, has developed his own signature hormone imbalance detection and treatment approach. He’s made the transition more comfortable for many women with pellet-injectable bioidentical hormone therapy.

What happens to the body during menopause?

Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her ovaries naturally stop producing estrogen and eggs, and her menstrual cycle stops. Her reproductive organs slow down, and fertility declines.

The transition tends to happen in your 40s or 50s during which your metabolism also slows down. The perimenopause phase leading up to menopause causes your periods to become irregular as well as the onset of other menopause symptoms.

What are the side effects of menopause?

When your estrogen levels start to drop, you may begin to experience symptoms such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chills and night sweats
  • Mood changes
  • Weight gain

Do I need to see a doctor for menopause?

Menopause isn’t a disease requiring treatment. You might not think you need to go to the doctor for menopause since it’s a natural biological process. However, Dr. Kunz can help make the transition easier and ease some of your most disruptive symptoms.

If any of the symptoms of menopause cause concern or disrupt your daily activities or sex life, you can feel comfortable talking about them to Dr. Kunz. He’s provided holistic women’s care for over 30 years and has a unique system to help women fine-tune their hormones.

Even if you choose not to make a special trip to discuss menopause, you should always keep up with your regular preventive screenings and tests, such as colonoscopy, mammography, and triglyceride testing. Menopause increases your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and urinary incontinence, and your yearly exams are the perfect opportunity to bring up any issues.

How do you treat the symptoms of menopause?

As an integrative medicine practitioner, Dr. Kunz understands how hormonal imbalances can upset your entire system and impact your daily life. That’s why he uses his unique method to detect and treat any adrenal, thyroid, and reproductive hormone imbalances, since they tend to coexist.

Using this approach, Dr. Kunz incorporates bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) into his treatment to help relieve women of their most disruptive menopause symptoms. He uses the BioTE™ pellet-injection system to deliver a gradual, consistent supply of natural hormones to the body.

If the symptoms of menopause are bothering you, contact Dr. Kunz online or by phone to set up an appointment.
