Menopause Advice and Treatment

Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, although it can occur earlier or later. During menopause, the body’s production of oestrogen and progesterone decreases, leading to a variety of symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and mood changes.

Advice and treatment for menopause typically focus on managing these symptoms and reducing the risk of related health problems. This can include:

  • Lifestyle changes such as maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, and stress management techniques.
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which can help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness by replacing the hormones that the body is no longer producing.
  • Over-the-counter and prescription medications, such as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication, to help manage mood changes and other symptoms.
  • Non-hormonal treatments such as vaginal moisturisers and lubricants to help with vaginal dryness, and vaginal oestrogen therapy to help with vaginal symptoms and to maintain healthy vaginal tissue.
  • Vitamin D and Calcium supplements to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, a bone-weakening condition that is more common in women who have gone through menopause.

It’s important to note that advice and treatment for menopause should be tailored to each individual’s specific needs and preferences, and that individuals should work closely with their healthcare provider to find the best approach for them.

It’s also important that individuals are able to access these services regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, or income level. Additionally, it’s important that these services are affordable and accessible to all.
