HRT

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment used to relieve symptoms of menopause by restoring falling levels of hormones oestrogen and progesterone. There are different types of HRT treatments for women who are experiencing menopause in different ways, or have existing medical conditions. HRT is not recommended for all women, and you should be sure to discuss your options with your GP before you consider taking it to treat your menopause symptoms.

There have been many studies examining the benefits and risks of HRT, taking into account the effects it has on bone density and increasing risks of cancer. However, there are also studies that outline the improvement it brings to a woman’s sense of wellbeing.
