Impact of cognitive behavioral therapy on menopausal symptoms
Sandhya Barthalomeo D’ Almeida and Dr. Anupama Vinay Oka
During the menopausal transition, women frequently develop vasomotor symptoms. However, unpleasant symptoms may accompany this transition, which can have a severe influence on daily functioning and overall quality of life. This article discusses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for women suffering from menopausal symptoms such as worry, stress, poor mood, hot flushes, and night sweats, as well as how thoughts, physical symptoms, and behaviour interact to generate misery.
