Reproductive Endocrinology And Infertility

Our Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility center focuses on treating women and couples suffering from reproductive problems. Some common problems include infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, septums and scarring. Members of our team treat women with menstrual irregularities, PCOS, unwanted hair or acne.

The management of women going through the menopausal transition is most often handled by general OBGYNs. However, some patients seek advice from a reproductive endocrinologist The most common concerns associated with menopause are due to the reduced circulating estrogen levels when the woman’s ovaries stop developing follicles that produce estrogen.

Symptoms of Menopause

Symptoms from the reduction in estrogen levels most commonly include vasomotor symptoms or hot flashes that occur during the menopausal transition. As the low-estrogen state continues, there are often problems with vaginal dryness and atrophy as well as increased complaints related to leakage of urine. Another problem that may develop during the menopausal years due to loss of estrogen is reduced bone density, including osteopenia and osteoporosis.

Westmed’s team can help to develop a recommended treatment plan dependent on your personal health history and symptoms.  For patients who wish to get additional counseling on the management of their menopausal symptoms or concerns, a reproductive endocrine consultation may be helpful.
