Tratamiento de la menopausia

Menopause is a time that every woman will go through at some time in her life.  This begins when the menstrual period is stopped and hormonal changes arise, usually occurs between 45 and 55 years, although sometimes it can occur years before.

As we age several changes occur, some of them are that the ovaries stop producing estrogen and the production of progesterone is decreased, among other reproductive hormones.  This causes symptoms to appear that for many become bothersome.

The best way to get through menopause is to go to a medical consultation with a gynecologist.  As a specialist in women’s health, you can recommend the best menopause treatment to relieve the signs or symptoms that bother you and prevent or manage some of the aging disorders.

Among the most common symptoms of menopause include:

  • Irregular menstrual period.
  • Sudden feeling of heat.
  • Night sweats.
  • Vaginal changes.
  • Alterations in mood.

Try to be aware of these symptoms to be able to treat them before they become unbearable.  Sometimes when modifying the diet and doing more physical activity, the symptoms may disappear on their own or not be so annoying, but if this is not your case go to a specialist doctor.

Some of the treatments for menopause are:

  • Hormone therapy.  It helps to control the symptoms of menopause after it.  It is responsible for replacing the hormones that the body stops producing.  It can be with estrogen or combine estrogen and artificial progesterone.
  • Vaginal estrogen.  The treatment releases a small amount of estrogen that is absorbed by the vaginal tissues, relieving vaginal dryness and discomfort during sexual intercourse.
  • Antidepressants.Taking antidepressants in low doses can help fight the hot flashes characteristic of this stage and control mood.
