Menopause treatments

A well-known medical treatment for menopause symptoms is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This isn't right for everyone, so your GP may recommend non-hormone options.

HRT and non-HRT options

HRT is an effective way of easing symptoms for most women going through menopause and perimenopause. Your GP will discuss any risks with you.

HRT involves using oestrogen and progestogen to replace your body's own levels around the time of the menopause. There are different types and doses of HRT – your GP can recommend one that's best suited to your needs. 

There are also treatments that don't involve hormones if your symptoms are having a big impact on your life and you cannot, or choose not to, have HRT.
