Treatment options:

  • ACUPUNCTURE
  • HRT (oestrogen, progesterone or testosterone replacement via a patch, spray or gel)
  • Supplements
  • Medication – for managing mood, sweats or anxiety.
  • EXERCISE – incredibly important for bone, muscle, and heart health = all over symptom management and general health benefits with the right guidance and programme available via Bury Physio Personal trainer Ben Durham.
  • PHYSIOTHERAPY – pelvic floor/bladder retraining
  • Good NUTRITION
  • DEXA Scan to check bone density.
  • Local (topical) oestrogen cream or a pessary (inserted vaginally by GP or specialist nurse)
  • Ring = a slow-release oestrogen (alternative to pessary)
  • Vaginal moisturisers and lubricants (ensure it is water based if using condoms as oil based will dissolve/degrade latex!)
  • Lifestyle changes/stress management/Cognitive behavioural therapy

Awareness and education for others – speak to your family members and/or employer if you find that symptoms negatively affect your work or home life.
