When to see your doctor about anxiety
If this sense of worry, dread and panic is impacting on your life, you should talk to your doctor. A 2016 survey by British Menopause Society found that half of all women don’t talk to their doctor about menopause. This is a tough time, but there are prescription medications available to help with this.
And then there’s always HRT…
HRT may treat the cause of your menopausal, hormonal imbalance. It will only work if your anxiety is linked to menopause. You need to talk to your doctor about your options. As always the Positive Pause caveat, there are pros and cons to taking HRT. See our vlog, What is HRT? and our conversation with our gynaecologist, Dr Karen Morton Talking Menopause Depression & Anxiety. We don’t take a view. It’s for you to decide whether it’s for you or not.
