The use of hormonal drugs that can reduce the symptoms of menopause. -Hormonal drugs cause a number of side effects:
– Mood swings
– Severe swelling of the breasts

* It is recommended to consult a gynecologist to improve and control the symptoms of premenopause and menopause, so that he can prescribe the best and least complication treatments for you to control the symptoms.
A common question that is always asked is whether menopause can be delayed.
Menopause is also a stage of life that can not be postponed, but with proper treatment, its symptoms can be largely controlled.
When should premenopausal or menopausal women see a gynecologist:
1- If your period is suddenly severe and contains blood clots.
2- If you bleed after intercourse.
3- If your period lasts longer than usual.
4 – If you have spotting after menstruation.
5- If the distance between your two periods is reduced.
Longer-term risks of menopause
Osteoporosis and heart disease are longer-term risks associated with menopause. This is because estrogen plays an important role in protecting bones and the heart. Decreased estrogen due to menopause puts the body at greater risk for osteoporosis and heart disease. It is best to consult a gynecologist about treatment options available to protect against these diseases.
The last word is:
Menopause is also a stage of life and the postmenopausal period is not much different from the life before this period. Remember to eat right and exercise. A nutritious diet and regular exercise help keep bones strong, and regular visits to your doctor and periodic checkups are essential during this time.
