Meno Martha and Hot Flushes and Night Sweats
On page one in Deciding About Hormone Therapy Use the North American Menopause Society elaborate on:

“Hormone therapy is one of the most effective treatments available for bothersome hot flashes and night sweats. If night sweats are waking you throughout the night, HT may improve sleep and fatigue, mood, ability to concentrate, and overall quality of life. Treatment of bothersome hot flashes and night sweats is the principal reason women use HT”.

In HRT the (British) Women’s Health Concern provides The Low-Down on HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy] and in HRT: Benefits and Risks: In Summary elaborates on:

“Women wishing to start HRT should carefully discuss the benefits and risks of treatment with their doctor to see what is right for them, taking into account their age, medical history, risk factors and personal preferences”.

If HRT is not for you, now or never, in Hot Stuff: What’s New About Hot Flashes posted on the North American Menopause Society’s MenoPause Blog, the author explains what you can do about hot flashes and answers the question Are Drugs the Only Option?:

“You have options. I am a proponent of behavioral approaches, because although these approaches may take more active engagement from you, they can eliminate the need to take a medication and may have other mental or physical health benefits. Menopause is the time to adopt positive health behaviors. These behaviors can help not only improve quality of life, but also improve health later in life. Although much more research is needed on behavioral treatments for hot flashes, here are some of my personal recommendations that I often discuss with women…”.

Are you in your 40s, 50s or older and trying to wish away vaginal dryness or something else down there? Unfortunately, it may not be that simple. We may need some help.

In Vaginal Atrophy: Symptoms & Causes – Overview the (United States) Mayo Clinic explain:

Meno Martha and Vaginal Dryness

“For many women, vaginal atrophy not only makes intercourse painful but also leads to distressing urinary symptoms. Because the condition causes both vaginal and urinary symptoms, doctors use the term “genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM)” to describe vaginal atrophy and its accompanying symptoms.

Simple, effective treatments for GSM are available. Reduced estrogen levels result in changes to your body, but it doesn’t mean you have to live with the discomfort of GSM”.

So, we may have to pluck up the courage to get the help we need because on page one in Vaginal Dryness the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) explain:

Meno Martha and Vaginal Dryness

“Unlike hot flashes, which generally improve with time, vaginal symptoms typically worsen with time because of aging and a prolonged lack of estrogen”.

The (British) Women’s Health Concern encourage us to seek help explaining in Vaginal Dryness: A Silent Problem:

“Remember, women spend a third of their lives in a post menopausal state and they need to make sure that they maintain the quality of life that they had before the menopause. Vaginal dryness does not need to be treated as an inevitable part of growing older – something can be done about it”.
