Menopause therapy, also called menopausal therapy, refers to a range of treatments that are specifically designed to help women manage the symptoms associated with menopause, which is the natural biological process that marks the end of a woman's reproductive years. Menopause is characterized by the permanent cessation of menstrual periods and the decline in estrogen and progesterone levels.

The goal of menopause therapy is to help women manage symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. The therapy can also help to prevent other conditions that may occur as a result of menopause, such as osteoporosis.

Menopause: How Therapy Can Help?

What is Menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process that signifies the end of a woman's reproductive years. It occurs when the ovaries stop producing eggs and decrease the production of hormones such as oestrogen and progesterone. This typically happens around the age of 45 to 55, but the exact timing can vary widely among women. Menopause is diagnosed after a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period. While menopause marks the end of fertility, it also brings about significant hormonal changes that can lead to various physical and emotional symptoms.

The two hormones that control menstruation and fertility, progesterone and oestrogen, are gradually produced in less amounts by the ovaries throughout menopause. Because of these hormonal swings, women may experience a range of physical and mental problems. While these symptoms might differ greatly from person to person, they can include mood swings, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, nocturnal sweats, irritability, anxiety, and sadness.

Here at TimeToBetter, we provide everything you require to live a better, more contented, and healthier life. Look no further if you're asking yourself, “How to overcome menopause depression" or “How can I find a therapist near me?" We serve as your guide through the difficulties associated with psychological, nutritional, and emotional well-being. There's no need to switch between apps because we've included every tool you need!

Types of Menopause
  • Natural menopause: This occurs when a woman's ovaries naturally decrease their production of reproductive hormones, leading to the end of menstrual cycles.
  • Premature menopause: Menopause that occurs before the age of 40, either naturally or due to medical interventions such as surgery or chemotherapy.
  • Surgical menopause: Menopause induced by the surgical removal of both ovaries, which can happen at any age
Symptoms of Menopause

The natural biological process known as menopause signifies the end of the menstrual cycle. Even though it's a typical aspect of ageing, the symptoms can be difficult to deal with. Let's examine the typical symptoms that women might encounter at this stage of their lives.

Menopause, which marks the end of menstruation and fertility, usually strikes women between the ages of 45 and 55. The natural decrease in reproductive hormones, particularly progesterone and oestrogen, is the cause of this shift. Although menopause is a natural aspect of ageing, each woman will experience the menopause differently.

Menopause-related alterations in the reproductive system and other body systems are brought on by the body's declining levels of oestrogen and progesterone. The ovaries gradually stop menstruating because they are less sensitive to the hormones that the brain sends to them, resulting in irregular menstrual periods. Hormone fluctuations can also impact the operation of other bodily organs and systems, which can lead to symptoms including mood swings, hot flashes, and changes in bone density.

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Irregular periods
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of libido
  • Memory problems

Every woman's menopausal journey is different when she starts it. TimeToBetter understands the value of treating menopause symptoms with compassion and empathy. We are here to help you navigate the changes your body is going through, from hot flashes to mood swings.

Causes of Menopause
  • Ageing: The primary cause of menopause is the natural aging process, during which the ovaries gradually decrease their production of oestrogen and progesterone.
  • Genetics: Family history can influence the age at which a woman experiences menopause.
  • Medical treatments: Certain medical treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy can induce menopause.
  • Surgical removal of ovaries: Removal of both ovaries through surgery leads to an abrupt onset of menopause.
