Hormone Replacement Therapy
Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) or menopausal hormone therapy, is used by women to relieve symptoms brought on by menopause. These can include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal dryness
It’s important to know that menopause is a normal part of aging for women, but when hormone levels increase and decrease, in can be tough to deal with, especially when the symptoms above occur. These symptoms can disappear on their own, but when they become too much, then HRT can work wonders. It’s also important to keep in mind that HRT can protect against osteoporosis!
Different types of HRT methods are available, and some work better than others depending on the situation. Most involve daily pill intakes while others come in the form of vaginal creams, gels, rings, skin patches and even pellet therapy.
