Menopause: those darned symptoms

The menopause marks an important phase in a woman’s life and can be accompanied by various challenges. However, recognising these symptoms often remains a major problem.

In this newsletter, we will explain how most women recognise and deal with it, why it sometimes doesn’t work and what alternatives there are to help them cope better with this phase.

What is a common problem when recognising the menopause?

A common problem with recognising the menopause is that many women do not immediately associate the symptoms with this phase of life. Doctors don’t always think about it either and prescribe medication based on a different diagnosis.
Symptoms can develop gradually and vary from woman to woman, making diagnosis difficult. Hot flushes, sleep disorders, mood swings, vaginal dryness and weight gain are just some of the possible signs of the menopause. Here is an overview of the possible symptoms.

What do many women do?

Many women who notice the symptoms of the menopause tend to either go it alone or seek advice from their friends and acquaintances. They may also turn to online forums to talk to other women going through similar experiences.

Does this approach work?

Although talking to friends and like-minded people can be helpful, there is often a lack of sound medical advice. Every woman experiences the menopause differently and what works for one person may not be effective for another. In addition, some women can be overwhelmed by the feeling that they are being left alone with their problems or that their concerns are not being taken seriously enough.

How could you approach the problem differently?

First of all, remember that if you are experiencing symptoms, they may be related to the menopause. Document these symptoms over 2-4 weeks with a symptom checker.
You can share the results with your doctor, who can then carry out a comprehensive medical examination. This could also be your gynaecologist or a hormone specialist.
A holistic approach could include alternative therapies such as acupuncture, herbal supplements or relaxation techniques that can support the body and mind.
Our experts can help you find the right path. You are welcome to arrange a free initial consultation (Clarity Call) with us.

Recommended action steps
a) Educate yourself: Find out more about the menopause and the various treatment options available to you. Knowledge is the key to coping better with this phase. You can find lots of information on
b) Seek professional advice: Make an appointment with us, a gynaecologist, hormone specialist or alternative medicine practitioner, to discuss your symptoms and receive personalised treatment.
c) Seek support: Don’t be afraid to share your worries and experiences with other women, whether in support groups or online. Sharing can be emotionally relieving. We offer regular Meno Meet-ups to meet physically in an informal atmosphere.
d) Adjust your lifestyle: Make sure you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly to promote overall wellbeing and alleviate the symptoms of menopause.
e) Reduce your stress: Discover relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga or breathing exercises to reduce stress levels and alleviate mood swings.

The menopause doesn’t have to be a time of uncertainty or anxiety. With the right approach and support, you can cope well with this phase of your life and continue to feel well and healthy.
