Making choices at menopauseThis article outlines the key components of assessing perimenopausal or menopausal women and discusses the benefits and risks of hormonal and non-hormonal treatments. 

Key points:

  • Menopause is a time of change for women and provides an opportunity for health assessment and promotion.
  • MHT is the most effective treatment for symptom relief and can be offered to most women.
  • Topical vaginal oestrogen treatment is effective in relieving urogenital symptoms.
  • For women with contraindications to MHT or those who prefer not to take hormones, non-hormonal options are available, and new non-hormonal options are currently under investigation.
