Menopause is a condition when body stops producing female hormones and thus causing women to have symptoms that include night sweats, hot flashes, anxiety, sleep disturbances, mood changes, cognitive changes, vaginal dryness, pain during sexual intercourse and urinary problems. The treatment of menopause focuses on improving these signs and symptoms that are associated with hormonal changes and preventing or managing chronic conditions that may occur with ageing.
Any form of hormonal treatment and other medicines given to treat menopausal symptoms will be given under the close supervision of your gynecologist. The dosage and method of administration may vary according to each woman’s need and after assessing the detailed personal and medical history. Your gynecologist will inform you about all the benefits, risks and complications associated with all the modalities of treatment and individualised treatment will be given after the informed consent. The treatment will also be reviewed every 6 months or yearly as the need of treatment and treatment options may change.
