Post Menopausal Care Q & A
What is postmenopausal care?
This type of specialized health care is designed to ensure you can enjoy your postmenopause years to their fullest.
With the dedicated, personalized postmenopausal care at RevaMed Primary Care Associates, you get a team of women’s health specialists behind you, ensuring your body’s getting what it needs now that you’ve made it through menopause.
Postmenopausal care is important because your body’s needs change after menopause. Since your body is creating less estrogen, your risk increases for a number of health conditions, including osteoporosis.
With thorough, consistent postmenopausal care, the RevaMed Primary Care Associates team makes sure you’re making the right nutrition, exercise, and medication choices to defend your body against this heightened risk.
How do I know when I’m postmenopausal?
If it’s been more than a year since you’ve had a period, you’re technically postmenopausal. That year span during which you didn’t get your period was menopause. Once you hit the year mark, you’re through that transition and can get started with postmenopausal care.
The RevaMed Primary Care Associates team is also available during menopause to help you moderate your symptoms and enjoy a healthy, balanced life.
What should I expect from postmenopausal care?

RevaMed Primary Care Associates takes the time to understand your health and lifestyle choices, as well as to test you for any relevant conditions, to make sure you’re getting the medical support and treatment you need.
