Talk to Dr. Rifai and see where you stand.

Menopause is a normal undeniable part of a woman's life.
Women go through Menopause at times starting in their forties. Sometime symptoms of "peri-menopause" may last >10 years before actual Menopause kicks in.
Women experience a lot of symptoms. Some of them may be difficult to tolerate.
Women have more emotions than men do. This is usually related to menstrual cycles and fluctuating hormones.
Pre-Menstrual Symptoms (PMS) as well as Peri-Menopause/Menopause & Post-Menopause Symptoms have major impacts on women's mental well-being and day to day function.
At Integritas, we can help. We guide women on how to deal with their day to day stressors despite the hormonal fluctuation.
We can also (in certain cases), provide medicinal therapy when non-medicinal approaches are not sufficient.
Referrals are available when needed.
