“Changes Before the Change,” a perimenopause discussion for women, will be offered Thursday, Feb. 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Heartwood in Crosby by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Menopause & Healthy Aging Center experts.
The discussion will provide information in a comfortable, safe, supportive small group environment where women can learn ways to navigate this important time in their lives. Obstetrician/Gynecologist Rachel Cady, M.D., a certified menopause practitioner, will guide women in understanding what is changing in their body during perimenopause, offer support and respect, and suggest ways to help women get through this natural process.
“Women are bombarded with misinformation about perimenopause and menopause and it is time to set the record straight,” Dr. Cady stated. “By understanding and making the most out of the menopause transition, women can create a healthy body that will take them into some of the best years of their life.”
Participants will learn what, why and how to manage weight change; mood swings/memory and concentration concerns; menstrual changes; sleep problems; sexual concerns/pain/libido changes; vaginal dryness; and taking care of yourself during menopause.
The free discussion is limited to 20 ladies. Light refreshments will be served.
