Menopause 101: What to Expect

Join us for a conversation about the menopause transition with Dr. Carla DiGirolamo, a reproductive endocrinologist and menopause specialist.
We dig into the gory details of what to expect and why changing sex hormones impact our minds and bodies in so many ways – from hot flashes, to body composition, vaginal changes, sex drive, depression, anxiety, and more. We also discuss the vital importance of fostering a healthy mindset during this time of change.
Dr. DiGirolamo has a profound understanding of our complex hormonal systems thanks to her extensive medical training and PhD in molecular pathobiology. She is a double board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and obstetrician/gynecologist and a NAMS-certified menopause specialist. Currently, Dr. DiGirolamo is a partner at Boston IVF, where she helps her patients navigate menopause and fertility challenges.
Dr. DiGirolamo is also deeply passionate about life-long fitness and she truly walks (rocks!) the talk. She is a certified CrossFit Trainer and Nutrition Coach who loves empowering women to improve their health and vitality.
Note: This episode is the first of a two-part conversation. In part two, we discuss strategies for managing mid-life changes including menopausal hormone therapy and lifestyle interventions.
