Treatment Solutions for Menopause
There is no way to avoid menopause for most women. Even a hysterectomy doesn’t completely stop the occurrence of menopause. When the hormones change and menstruation stops, the body can be put into a tailspin. This is why it is referred to as “the change” as the body combats a big change in hormone production and levels. If you are approaching menopause or are already experiencing menopausal symptoms, there are options to manage the discomfort of this time in your life.
Unfortunately, the list is long when it comes to possible symptoms of menopause. Not all women experience this change in their body the same way. Some women have severe changes and others experience much milder symptoms – here are some of the possibilities:
- Hot flashes/night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Low libido
- Mood fluctuations and mental strain
- Joint pain and lower bone density
If these symptoms were not enough, there can also be higher risks for osteoporosis and heart disease after menopause. It is important to know what options are available to manage symptoms and improve your health both during and post-menopause.
Some treatment options include hormone therapy, natural supplements and changes to your diet. Each woman is different and may need a customized treatment plan to manage the symptoms and health concerns that come with menopause. All women should be intaking more calcium to protect against osteoporosis and caring for their heart health.
To manage your menopausal symptoms, you need a specialist on your side. Talk with your gynecologist and explore the treatment options available. Your OB/GYN can help you find the right treatment for your body to help you reduce the discomfort of this time in your life.
