There are options to help reduce or manage some symptoms. The primary tool is called Hormone Therapy (HT), also called hormone replacement therapy (HRT), menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), or hormone management therapy (HMT). HT is helpful for decreasing hot flashes, improving the health of your vagina and urinary systems, and supporting your muscle and bone health and strength.
Unfortunately, other symptoms may not respond as well to HT. Physiotherapy can help with physical pain and psychological counseling and therapy can help with emotional troubles. Lifestyle changes to promote quality sleep, good nutrition, and exercise are important and known to decrease menopausal transition symptoms.
