Other Treatments for Menstrual Disorders


Therapy may help to manage stress or other behaviors that can cause problems. There are many types of therapy. Talk with a therapist to find out which type will work for you. Some types are:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT will help you look at thought patterns. It can help you learn to interpret them in a different way and learn better coping skills.

Group Support

There are many types of group therapy. Groups may be led by a private therapist, or exist on their own. They can cover coping methods, body image, eating, family issues, or more.

Family Therapy

Family habits and attitudes often play a role in eating disorders and stress. Many people can't get better unless their families know their roles in the problem and wellness. Close family members need to understand the disorder and support the patient.
