Menopause Management

Menopause Specialist in New York City


There is no need to suffer through the trials and tribulations of menopause. Hot flashes, sleepless nights, weight gain, and irritability are commonly experienced by women approaching midlife, and these disruptive symptoms can last for years.

Isn’t it time you did something about it? Symptomatic relief may be as easy as a visit with gynecologist Dr. Yelena Tsyba at Great City Medical in NYC.

A woman is considered to have begun menopause when she hasn’t had a period for 12 months. Menopause reflects the natural decline in production of estrogen and progesterone hormones in the body. The resulting hormonal imbalance can wreak havoc in your life.


Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Menopause


If you’re experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms of menopause, you may be a candidate for hormone replacement therapy:

  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Vaginal pain
  • Painful sex
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

HRT involves providing a form of the hormones your body is no longer producing in order to balance bodily processes. In addition to alleviating menopausal symptoms, recent research has found that beginning HRT at the time menopause begins may provide additional health benefits such as protection against heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and even dementia in later years.

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, Dr. Tsyba may determine that you would benefit from antidepressants or other medications as well.


Is Postmenopausal Bleeding Dangerous?


Bleeding that occurs after menopause has begun may indicate a number of health issues.

Menopause can cause the tissue lining the uterus or vagina to thin, tear, and bleed – especially after sex. When the opposite problem occurs and the uterine lining thickens (which is called endometrial hyperplasia), it can also cause postmenopausal bleeding.

Uterine fibroids and polyps are another cause of postmenopausal bleeding. These growths develop in the tissue lining the uterus and are typically benign, although some polyps may develop into cancer.

Dr. Tsyba utilizes a number of safe, convenient in-office gynecological procedures that can address these issues.


How Menopause Can Affect Your Urinary Tract and Cause Incontinence


Menopause can affect a woman’s bladder, too.

Because estrogen helps to keep your pelvic and bladder tissue strong and flexible, the sudden drop in estrogen levels that can occur with menopause weakens these areas, resulting in more frequent urges to urinate (overactive bladder) and urinary incontinence. Hormonal imbalances may also increase your risk of urinary tract infections.

Pelvic floor strengthening (also called Kegel exercises), medications, and nerve stimulation may help address these issues.

I was very pleased with this facility. I didn’t have to wait, the nurse and doctor were quite human (vs bureaucratic), and I felt seen and listened to.

Great City Medical clinic helped me file my green card immigration medical exam form. The team is very knowledgeable and flexible. I scheduled my appointment within one week and got the report quickly. Due to some personal health issues, I had to update my report two days before the interview, and the team helped me correct the form with no extra cost within one day! I really appreciated it and highly recommended having your medical exam report done quickly and professionally with the Great City Medical team.

Aesthetically this is not the best looking clinic but the service was okay. They gave me false positive results from my pap I wanted to have a second opinion before they was going to go in and do a coloscopy. I was good that I did. I don’t know something was fishy about this place . When I had an ultrasound there were staff members basically arguing with eachother. Talking about a new MA.When I left and came back for results and they told me I had low sodium levels I was worried about that, so I drank pediasure. The only thing they told me to do was eat deli sandwiches and salted nuts. I’m always fishy about places that do abortions, its a clinic not a hospital.

This place is amazing because of the ladies and doctors that work there. They are an amazing group of people! They are professional, friendly and courteous! The office manager, however, could be a little more courteous and friendly with the clients and the staff. I reccomend this clinic to everyone, great place and convenient.To all the staff; thank you for all the hard work that you do!

Had to wait for 1/2 hour and the person at the front desk wore her mask BELOW her nose. Dr. Akselrud could not have been nicer and he was more than helpful in dealing with my medical issue. He is a good doctor.

I am fairly new here and had about 4 appointments and never had any issues. The wait sometimes can be a little long, but the staff are always nice. The doctors are kind and gentle with their procedures. The anesthesiologist was so nice and helpful and made me feel comfortable during my procedure. I travel from the Bronx and it’s worth the travel.
