There is a good news for the women folk who are experiencing problems related to menopause. The Marwari Hospital in Guwahati is starting a 'Dedicated Menopause Clinic' in its hospital premises.
Menopause is the time that marks the end of the menstrual cycle. It's diagnosed after a woman has gone 12 months without a menstrual period. Menopause is a natural and normal event, not a disease or disorder. Yet, menopause symptoms may significantly affect the quality of life.
During these years, most women will notice early menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbance, heart palpitations, poor memory, vaginal dryness and mood changes.
Dr Sweta Bhansali, who has taken the initiative of the Menopause Clinic at Marwari Hospitals, is a Credentialed IMS Menopause Practitioner. She is MBBS, MD (O & G) with 14 years of experience.
