Rush Midlife Center for Women

Health issues can affect every aspect of your life — including your physical wellness, self-esteem, activity levels and mental health. And these issues only get more complex as you age.

The Rush Midlife Center for Women is dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized care to address the health care needs of women over age 40.

Our team specializes in managing and controlling the symptoms of menopause at all stages — from perimenopause to menopause to post-menopause. This includes providing care and support for the following:

  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Vaginal dryness

We will personalize your care plan by providing you with treatment options that work best with your health needs and overall lifestyle.

In addition to menopause, our multidisciplinary team specializes in the distinct health issues — such as osteoporosis and heart disease — that can arise when your ovaries stop releasing eggs and producing estrogen during and after menopause.

Our team works closely with specialists in the following areas to provide you with the comprehensive care you need during this phase of your life:

Cardiology for heart-related conditions
Dermatology for skin-related conditions
Gastroenterology for gastrointestinal conditions
Internal medicine for overall wellness and prevention
Palliative medicine for pain management and quality of life issues
Physical medicine and rehabilitation to address physical disabilities
Psychology for social and emotional challenges
Rheumatology for bone and joint-related issues
Sleep medicine for sleep problems and disturbances
Urogynecology for bladder and pelvic floor conditions

The center also offers a full lab, a DEXA machine for assessing osteoporosis, and complementary therapies, including nutrition counseling, exercise physiology, pelvic floor therapy and acupuncture.

The midlife years — 40s, 50s and 60s — are an important time for women to stay active and eat right for long-term bone and join health.
