Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy

Professor Kathryn Macaulay

Menopause normally occurs between the age of 44 and 55. As a woman ages, there is a gradual decline in the function of her ovaries and production of estrogen and progesterone. Decline in estrogen production can lead to symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood changes. Dr. Macaulay will discuss the various presentations of menopause and the use of hormone replacement therapy to alleviate its symptoms.

Instructor: Kathryn Macaulay obtained her medical degree from Emory University and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UC San Diego. She has earned her certification as a menopause practitioner. She is a professor in the department of reproductive medicine at UCSD and is in charge of the menopause clinic.
