No; it is a natural phenomenon.

How can we manage menopause well?

  • Avoid smoking
  • Use alternative ways to control symptoms before opting for hormone replacement therapy.
  • Manage stress through yoga, deep breathing, and meditation.
  • Wear clothes made from natural fibres, such as cotton, to prevent vaginal infections
  • Avoid antihistamines, alcohol, caffeine, and diuretics, which can aggravate vaginal dryness


  • Consume more plant-based foods, especially fennel, parsley, soy, whole grains, alfalfa, and apples, as they contain phytoestrogens, which can help during menopause.
  • Reduce saturated fats intake
  • Reduce meat consumption and increase the intake of fruits and vegetables for their antioxidants.
  • Incorporate more nuts, seeds, and flax seed oil in your diet.
