Many people define menopause as the “change of life”. It’s the time wherein a woman’s ovaries stop producing egg cells. In addition, the estrogen level in the body will drop, hence, the menstrual cycle alters as well. Most women decrease their sexual desire as they start to experience the menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, headache, sleeping difficulties, mood swings and many more.
Not all women encounter the same experience and symptoms as they enter the menopausal stage. There are lucky women who don’t experience menopausal symptoms at all. Unfortunately for the rest, the symptoms are so uncomfortable that their lifestyle is greatly affected.
However, there are a number of ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle during menopause. It’s a good move that you have to consult first with your doctor on what to take for menopause before buying any medications.
Here is the list of medications that can help a woman with her menopausal symptoms:
- Low-dose Oral Contraceptives (Birth Control Pills)
- Prescription Medications that are naturally used for other conditions
- Menopausal Hormone Therapy (MHT)
- Over-the-counter Medications (OTC)
- Prescription Medicines for Vaginal Discomfort
On the other hand, you can also buy natural treatments when coping with menopause. Here are the most common herbal treatments:
- Black Cohosh
- Vitamin E
- Yoga, Aerobic, or Breathing Exercise
- Cold Drinks
Finally, keep in mind that taking dietary or herbal supplements may have side effects or harmful drug interactions. For safety purposes, consult your doctor first before taking such a huge risk.
