Menopause can make women suffer from unbearable hot flashes, interrupted sleep due to night sweats, and mood swings. Hormone replacement therapy for women can effectively relieve menopause-related symptoms. Properly regulated hormones are essential to optimal health.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses bioidentical hormones to replace or supplement your body's natural hormones. As we get older or because of diseases or specific conditions, our bodies produce fewer hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone. Although these hormones are chiefly associated with sexual function, they also play an essential role in your overall health and wellness. When these hormones’ levels decline, you could experience a wide range of symptoms that can take a toll on your life and general health. Hormone replacement therapy helps relieve these symptoms and reduces severe side effects.

What Are the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy efficiently treats menopausal symptoms, including mood swings, hot flashes, and night sweats. Supplementing your estrogen levels also helps to relieve dry skin, vaginal dryness, and irritable bladder symptoms. Other benefits of hormone replacement therapy include:

  • Increased elasticity of blood vessels
  • Lower risk of fractures and osteoporosis
  • Potential improvement of glucose levels
  • Potential decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease
  • Decreased incidence of colon cancer

How Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Administered?

Hormone replacement therapy can be given in different ways, either continuously or in cycles. It is usually started in low dosages and, if required, gradually increased later. We will decide the dosage and treatment routine based on your health and specific symptoms.
