    ROCKVILLE, MD, December 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Women in their 40s and 50s may begin to notice some drastic physical changes. Perhaps you need to blast the air conditioning even in the winter or you notice that you tire more quickly and easily. You may even be feeling a bit more anxious or down lately. When these symptoms first appear, it can be difficult for any woman to pinpoint what is happening.

While some people nickname it "the change", it's better known as menopause, and it's a natural part of the aging process for women. However, just because it's normal, doesn't mean you have to just suffer through the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause. Dr. Eric Ashkin, gynecologist in Rockville, can provide a variety of treatments to suit each individual patient and their unique needs.

"There are a myriad of options for treating menopause symptoms, from simple lifestyle changes and over-the-counter supplements to even hormone therapy," says Dr. Ashkin, who treats menopause in Rockville. "If emotional or physical symptoms are bothering you and you suspect that it's due to menopause, don't wait to get the care you need to alleviate your symptoms." While the effects of menopause may be mild for some, for others, the symptoms can be almost debilitating.

"We've seen a lot of patients come through our door who are going through menopause. Everyone is different; some people don't seem too bothered by the symptoms, while others need a little help to minimize menopause's effects," says Dr. Ashkin, Rockville gynecologist.

As with any doctor's visit, the first step is discussing medical history and health issues. "Especially if a patient is dealing with more serious symptoms and is considering hormone therapy, we need to look at their medical history and make sure that course of treatment is the right one for them," says Rockville gynecologist, Dr. Ashkin. "I'll also discuss the pros and cons of each treatment so the patient is fully aware of what to expect. For some, treating the symptoms can be as simple as prescribing a regular exercise regime and healthy diet."
