Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy can offer relief

In the years before and during menopause, the levels of female hormones fluctuate, sometimes dramatically. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), sometimes referred to as menopausal hormone therapy, can relieve these symptoms.

While there are some risks, systemic estrogen is still the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. The benefits of hormone therapy may outweigh the risks if you’re healthy and:

  • Experience moderate to severe hot flashes or other menopausal symptoms
  • Have lost bone mass and either can’t tolerate or aren’t benefitting from other treatments
  • Stopped having periods before age 40 (premature menopause) or lost normal function of your ovaries before age 40 (premature ovarian insufficiency)

If you are struggling with menopause-related symptoms, we can help. We’ll discuss the treatment options available to you, the typical results of each treatment, and the risks associated with each so that, together with your physician, you can make an informed decision as to which treatment plan is right for you.
