At CMC we are fully equipped to provide comprehensive information and a broad range of treatment options for Menopause
Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. It occurs when the ovaries gradually stop producing eggs and the hormone levels, particularly estrogen and progesterone, decline. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for menopause is essential for women going through this transition.
Symptoms of Menopause
Menstrual cycles may become irregular, with changes in frequency, duration, and intensity of periods.
Sudden and intense feelings of heat, often accompanied by sweating, flushing, and a rapid heartbeat.
Hot flashes that occur during sleep, leading to excessive sweating and disrupted sleep patterns.
Decreased estrogen levels can result in vaginal dryness, itching, discomfort during intercourse, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections.
Insomnia, frequent waking up during the night, or difficulty falling asleep can be experienced during menopause.
Hormonal fluctuations can contribute to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and feelings of depression.
Many women experience reduced energy levels and an overall sense of fatigue during menopause.
Menopause can affect libido and sexual desire, leading to changes in sexual function and satisfaction.
Treatment of Menopause
Hormone Replacement/Estrogen therapy, with or without progesterone, can help alleviate menopausal symptoms. It is available in various forms, including pills, patches, creams, or vaginal rings. However, hormone therapy is not suitable for everyone and should be discussed with a healthcare professional to weigh the potential benefits and risks.
For women experiencing vaginal dryness and discomfort, low-dose vaginal estrogen in the form of creams, tablets, or rings can be effective in relieving symptoms.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle can help manage menopausal symptoms. This includes regular exercise, maintaining a balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, managing stress levels, and getting adequate sleep.
Some women find relief from menopausal symptoms through complementary and alternative therapies like acupuncture, herbal remedies, or mind-body techniques. However, the efficacy of these approaches may vary, and it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional before trying them.
It is important for women to consult a healthcare professional to discuss their specific symptoms, medical history, and treatment options for menopause. At CMC, we can provide guidance on the most suitable approach based on individual needs and preferences.
