While menopause signals the end of a woman’s reproductive years, Dr. Elizabeth Eden firmly believes that it doesn’t need to catapult women into a world of inactivity and reduced sexual enjoyment. At her Sutton Place and Midtown East, New York practice, Dr. Eden helps women navigate the journey into menopause as seamlessly as possible by managing the symptoms brought on by this transition, allowing women to fully enjoy their post-reproductive years.

The symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are varied and no two cases are alike. For a lucky group of women, the effects of this transition are minimal and life goes on as it always has. For others, the transition can be more difficult, accompanied by symptoms that range from mild to severe, including:

Dr. Eden is equipped with the latest technology and expertise to help patients negotiate menopause with relative ease.
Since the onset of menopause can be accompanied by a host of different symptoms, treatments are wide and varied, but often include:
Whatever the treatment, Dr. Eden is a firm believer in improved quality of life and treats each woman individually and holistically for better overall wellness and wellbeing.
