HRT is an important decision every woman must make when entering and experiencing menopause. Watch our video to learn more about questions you may have when deciding to use HRT.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is a treatment that replenishes the body’s female hormone estrogen and can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause like hot flashes, sweating, and mood swings. Other potential symptoms of menopause that HRT can minimize include sleep problems and vaginal dryness.
Taking HRT can also reduce the risk of getting osteoporosis later in life. Osteoporosis is when the bone density of the body’s bone mass deteriorates and is a common condition in postmenopausal women.
Hormone Replacement Therapy can help improve mood as it assists the body in regulating its natural hormones. While HRT has some detriments such as an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, these can be mitigated by taking a lower dose of the hormone. Talk to your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of HRT in order to balance your body’s hormones and find relief from your menopausal symptoms.
