With a life expectancy of over 80 years today, at least a third of a woman’s life happens after menopause. For many women, these are the best years of their life: Without monthly cycle complaints, without demanding teenagers, more time for themselves and new interests.
This means that a woman at 50 is nowadays no longer “old” but active and can expect several decades of a productive life. At the same time, however, the increasing life expectancy also places higher demands on the prevention and treatment of possible health problems beyond menopause.
Menopause with or without hormone therapy
Menopause itself brings special questions and complaints. Up until a few years ago, hormone replacement therapy was recommended by virtually all doctors for almost all women. Today, it is prescribed on a much more individual basis. Our medical specialists are happy to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of hormone replacement therapy as well as possible therapies from alternative medicine with you and help you find the best treatment for you.
