Postmenopause, which naturally occurs after menopause, is typically determined by the length of time you have been experiencing symptoms and how long it’s been since your last menstrual period.
Although most postmenopausal people do not require treatment, our gynecologic specialists at NewYork-Presbyterian will sit down with you and discuss any symptoms you may have to develop a personalized postmenopausal treatment plan such as hormone therapy. Some postmenopause treatments that may help alleviate your symptoms include:
- Holistic and alternative treatments
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Medications such as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERM)
- Vaginal creams for vaginal dryness and sexual discomfort
Lifestyle considerations for postmenopause
For most postmenopausal women, certain lifestyle changes can be implemented to help ease their symptoms. We work closely with each patient to learn about their lifestyle habits and provide guidance to support lifestyle adjustments, such as:
- Eating a balanced diet
- Exercising regularly
- Getting more sleep
- Incorporating meditation and reducing stress
- Reducing caffeine and alcohol
- Stopping smoking
