A recent study (March 2018) from the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology states that women may benefit from psychological measures to help manage their menopause symptoms. These measures include behaviour based therapies, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapies. There is now good evidence of benefit from symptoms such as hot flushes, irritability, forgetfulness, joint pain and vaginal dryness. This particularly benefits women in whom it may not be appropriate to use hormone replacement therapy, such as a recent history of breast cancer and even those patients who prefer not to take a hormonal option. These findings suggest that nearly 75% of women who underwent psychological treatment had benefit from their menopausal symptoms. This is a reassuring development and women are encouraged to investigate all options in managing symptoms of the menopause.
