Dr. Gina Muscolino – Lakeview OB/GYN Clinic

(exciting music) – My name’s Gina
Muscolino, and I am an MD. Board-certified in
obstetrics and gynecology, and a certified practitioner in menopause. Menopause is a normal and natural stage that women go through. The average age of
menopause is about 51 or 52. This is a good time in a woman’s
life to visit her physician and achieve the best
possible health that she can. Of course with diet and exercise, routine visits with her physician, discussing any issues or concerns. Most symptoms that women
have during menopause are normal and natural, but we’d like to rule out any
other concerns or problems. Women can become diabetic, we wanna rule out any sort
of pre-cancerous things with mammograms and pap
smears, colonoscopies at 50. Symptoms can vary and some
women have no symptoms at all and some women have daily
and more severe symptoms. The most common things are
hot flashes and night sweats. Some women do have some mild
new changes in depression, sometimes they are not
able to sleep at night. Those are kind of the main complaints but they can vary among different women. Again, this is a very good time to visit your physician
and have a discussion about any health issues
or health concerns. And mainly just prevention
and living a healthy lifestyle at this time of your life. I definitely appreciate
when women come to see me and that the fact that
they share their needs and health issues with me. I feel very grateful for that. (exciting music)
