What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the medical treatment for menopause. Hormone therapy is the most recognized method of managing menopausal symptoms and replacing deficient hormone levels. It helps not just with symptoms but with future health issues caused by low hormone levels, such as osteoporosis and heart disease.
Since the cause of menopausal symptoms arises from low levels of the hormone oestrogen and progesterone, hormone therapy can help alleviate the symptoms.
Some choose to try natural remedies but there is no evidence of effectiveness.
