Menopause Treatment

Menopause can result naturally due to aging, ovarian insufficiency, or surgical removal of the ovaries. When menopause occurs, women frequently seek menopause treatment to relieve the unpleasant symptoms of this condition. Also known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), estrogen replacement therapy, or similar variations, menopause treatment is an effective way to alleviate the symptoms and risks of menopause.

Menopause Diagnosis

As a woman ages, biological processes will decline. One of these declining processes is the production of estrogen and eggs, which usually starts between 40 and 50. Besides a decline in estrogen, progesterone and testosterone imbalances also take place.

Doctors diagnose menopause when a woman has not had her menstrual cycle for twelve consecutive months. After a thorough evaluation, they may decline or prescribe menopause treatment. This treatment is available in many forms, such as vaginal rings or suppositories, patches, mists, gels, creams, and pills.

Menopause Symptoms and Risks

The reported symptoms that accompany menopause include:

  • Declining memory and cognitive function
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Headaches
  • Hot flashes
  • Loss of libido
  • Lower energy levels
  • Mood swings, including depression and anxiety
  • Night sweats
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Vaginal dryness

Menopause can also lead to other health risks, such as the development of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and osteoporosis. These symptoms and risks make menopause treatment a viable option for many women.

Hormone Replacement Therapy risks

Many women report valuable benefits after receiving hormone replacement therapy. Still, many therapies have risks, but the benefits of menopause therapy may outweigh these.

Women who undergo hormone replacement therapy or HRT may expose themselves to these health risks:

  • Blood clotting
  • Breast cancer
  • Endometrial cancer (the chance of this developing is higher when you have your uterus and estrogen is prescribed without progestin)
  • Stroke

These risks decline if you start menopause therapy before 60 or within ten years of your last menstrual cycle. Other factors that help reduce the health risks of treatment include taking low doses over the shortest timeframe and taking a combination of replacement hormones. Experts also recommend regular pelvic and breast exams for early detection of possible cancer.

Menopause Treatment Side Effects

Similar to the menopause symptoms, the side effects of treatment may include:

  • Bloating
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Vaginal spotting

If you experience any of these side effects, report them to your doctor. You may need a change in hormone dosage or a re-evaluation of your situation.

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

HRT benefits can include the following:

  • Elimination or reduction of night sweats and hot flashes
  • Better sleep quality
  • Lower the risks of developing heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia
  • More energy
  • Improved moods
  • Increased sex drive
  • Increased vaginal condition
