    Menopause Care at Lahey

    Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycles. Due to chemical changes within the female body at this time, menopause can cause symptoms that include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood swings.

    Lahey gynecologist Elizabeth M. Prusak, MD, has advanced training and certification in treating menopause symptoms. She works with each woman to develop a care plan to ease symptoms and support overall health and well-being after the childbearing years.
