Understanding menopause and developing a strategy to manage your symptoms can improve your health and lifestyle considerably. Even if you are not wanting medical management, talking to a doctor about your symptoms and being educated on why this is happening, can make the process a little easier to understand. It is also important to ensure there are no other underlying problems that may be the cause of your symptoms. Our doctors can usually figure this out through a comprehensive assessment and simple investigations.
Management and treatment of menopausal symptoms depend on each individual woman, stage of life, relationships and general level of health and wellbeing. Healthy living, natural and complementary therapies, menopause hormone therapy, or MHT (formerly called hormone replacement therapy, or HRT) and some prescription medications can help relieve menopausal symptoms.
It is important to not just put up with the symptoms of menopause. Our doctors have a special interest in menopause and can help you on your journey.
