Dr. Faubion is the Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine at Mayo Clinic and the Director of their Center for Women’s Health. Stephanie is the Medical Director of The North American Menopause Society. She has come up with her own version of “the talk”. No, not an awkward conversation between you and your parents talking about menstruation and sex. Dr. Stephanie Faubion has developed a new version of “the talk” to get women information about menopause. She goes over everything from the definition of menopause to what to expect from it. Stephanie encourages women to talk to their doctors in their 40s to prepare for what’s going to happen during menopause. She has found that a lot of women are not even aware of some of the symptoms of menopause beyond hot flashes. The more informed women are when going into menopause, the better equipped they can be to work with their doctor to be ready for it. She goes over different options women have to combat symptoms that may come from menopause.
