Dr. J. Scott Bembry discusses the best treatment for a woman’s menopause symptoms. Click play to watch the video or read the transcript.


The best treatment for menopause is to treat the specific symptoms that are bothering you. That generally is going to be hormone replacement therapy (also called menopausal hormone therapy), unless there are reasons why we shouldn’t use it for you. Then we try to focus on your specific condition, complaints and symptoms. What I try to tell patients is that the best therapy is what's going to alleviate your symptoms.
