Treatment Induced Menopause

Choose a section for more information:

While the experience of treatment induced menopause may bring with it multiple stressors and issues, it can also be a time of unique discovery. Many issues across our lifespan can prove challenging. Facing premature menopause may be only one small aspect. We hope that the information provided on these pages will give you a foundation to enable you to talk to your health care provider about your treatment induced menopause. We also hope that this information will assist you to actively control your symptoms, rather than allowing the symptoms to control you. 

Decisions to stop smoking, exercise more frequently, or change eating habits can be difficult. As you recover from your surgery, or treatment, take the time to shift your thinking towards how to care for yourself. Strengthen your relationships with family and friends, and reach out to groups in your community that may share your interests. Get in touch with who you are, and what you need to do to keep your mind and body healthy. Take control of your health. You are worth it!
