Menopausal Disorders

Serenity Gynecology & Functional Medicine and Dr. Miriam Torres have years of experience helping women with various gynecological concerns. For example, we can help you overcome menopausal disorders in Grapevine, TX, and ensure that you’re healthy and strong. Here are a few common issues you might experience when going through menopause and ways that we can help you.

Irregular Periods

During the early parts of menopause, your menstrual cycle may get longer or shorter, or you might even skip them. In this situation, we typically turn to hormone therapies as well as some chemotherapy drugs to reduce your symptoms. We can also provide emotional support if you need it, including talk therapy that can reduce your suffering and ensure that you get the results you need.


Unfortunately, you’re likely to experience dry vaginal skin during menopause, which can make sexual intercourse with your partner more painful. This problem may linger after menopause, so if you want to stay sexually active, you may need gels or lubricants. Our team can also provide medical support that may lubricate your vagina and ensure that you don’t experience high infection risks.

Hot Flashes

We at Serenity Gynecology & Functional Medicine know that hot flashes and night sweats are a major issue in menopause. Dr. Torres can help with this and other menopausal disorders in Grapevine, TX, by providing extra help. For example, there are some behavioral adjustments you might make or coping mechanisms you can take that can reduce the severity of these symptoms.

Mood Swings and Sleep Problems

It’s not uncommon for women to experience severe mood swings and sleep issues during menopause. Our care team will find a solution for you, including various medications that can temporarily balance your mood and help you sleep more effectively. This change is one of the toughest, so we’ll make sure that you also get emotional support from a caring expert who knows you well.

Body Changes

You’re going to experience thinner and drier hair, some weight gain, stiffer joints, and even extra facial hair. Our team can provide hormonal therapy that minimizes some of these problems, as well as create a diet and exercise plan that minimizes your physical limitations, fight weight gain, and manage your pain.
