Menopause is the stage of life when women begin to produce less estrogen and progesterone. For most women, this transition usually begins between the ages of 45 and 55. The period of time leading up to “the change” is called perimenopause. It’s a gradual process that’s complete when a woman has stopped menstruating for at least 12 months.
Menopausal symptoms can significantly impact your emotional and physical well-being. By replacing the hormones your body has stopped producing, you can relieve these symptoms and restore your energy, vitality, and sexual pleasure.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) comes in many forms: creams, gels, pellets, patches, and pills. After evaluating your overall health and menopausal symptoms, Dr. Bruner creates a personal HRT regimen uniquely tailored to your needs.
In menopausal women, HRT has been shown to relieve:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Painful intercourse
- Vaginal dryness and itching
Your symptoms can change in severity and frequency, so your treatment plan evolves over time. Dr. Bruner generally recommends the lowest dose proving to be effective for your symptoms. She’ll follow up every three to six months to see how you’re feeling and if your regimen needs to be adjusted. Dr. Bruner takes a holistic approach to treating your menopause symptoms. She supplements your HRT regimen with easy lifestyle changes to help manage symptoms naturally.
Dr. Amy was the first provider I have seen that actually listened and looked at my lab work. She is very skilled in looking at women's issues. Especially the thyroid. She is obviously an expert in her Field. I'm looking forward to my treatment and more energy!Suzanne McLainGoogle Review
Dr. Bruner is absolutely terrific! She explains everything really well and has a wonderful, calm bedside manner. Sometimes, going to the Gynecologist can be uncomfortable, but Dr. Bruner really put me at ease. I appreciate her clinical skills and patience tremendously. I highly recommend her!Lisa BroderickFacebook Review
She understood my problems, even more than the immediate Thyroid Problem Need. She was an OB-GYN in the past, so she can even help me with my post-hysterectomy problems. Her demeanor is familiar, and kind. She listens and shares info. Highly recommended...Meran niCuillGoogle Review
She is never in a rush and takes all the time needed to really listen what my health concerns are and how I am doing overall. Dr. Bruner takes a holistic approach to healthcare and at my annual visit yesterday, she had some ideas on how to treat a non-gyn condition that my primary doctor had not suggested. She is a fabulous physician and I highly recommend her.Susan M.Yelp Review
