Northside 101: Menopause (Part 2)

The average age of menopause is 51 in the U.S. Menopause occurs when a woman's ovaries stop working and hormone levels drop significantly. It is diagnosed after a woman has gone 12 months without a menstrual period. 

In part two of this video series, Dr. Sujatha Reddy discusses genetics, cardiovascular disease and hormone replacement therapy. If you’re looking for relief from menopause symptoms, knowing the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help you decide whether it’s right for you. Understanding your family history can also help in relieving your menopause symptoms. 

Northside 101 is a series where Northside Hospital experts break down complex medical terms and procedures.
