4 Tips To Manage Menopause Symptoms

It can be so difficult to find the most effective way to manage menopausal symptoms. Hot flashes, mood swings, irregular menstrual cycles, vaginal dryness, reduced libido, sleep interruption, and weight changes are the most frustrating symptoms. Women often spend one-third to one-half of our lives in the postmenopausal phase, we desperately need relief and alternatives!

A recent study looked at the differences in symptom relief, side effects, and safety of women using conventional hormonal therapy (all of which are FDA-approved and by prescription only) versus those using pellet hormone therapy (PHT), in which pellets containing estradiol and testosterone are inserted into and absorbed by the body and last for three to nine months.

The women receiving pellets had more complications, according to the study, such as abnormal bleeding, hair loss, acne, and weight gain. Because the side effects are varied, some people may not want to rely on pharmacological methods and instead look for natural ways to manage their menopause symptoms.
