HRT: Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What Conditions Can HRT Treat?

HRT or hormone replacement therapy is used to treat many different reproductive health conditions. It can be used to improve a woman’s chances of conceiving a child, reducing the risk of infertility after an illness, and also help to control the uncomfortable signs and symptoms that are often associated with menopause. Menopause can begin as early as the late 30s for some women. Symptoms can range from mild to extremely severe. Hormone replacement therapy restores the delicate hormonal balance in the reproductive system and allows women to live a normal life, without the unpredictable symptoms of menopause.

Who Is a Good Candidate for HRT?

Women who experience a wide range of symptoms once they begin to enter menopause are ideal candidates for hormone replacement therapy. HRT is also recommended for women who are forced into menopause due to surgically removing the ovaries or other health conditions that have an adverse effect on the reproductive organs in the body. Many women respond well to hormone replacement therapy. As it begins to re-establish the delicate hormone balance within the body, the woman will feel her energy return, and she will not be as tired or fatigued. Her sex drive will also increase, as will her ability to receive more satisfaction from sexual encounters.

How Well Does HRT Control the Symptoms of Menopause?

Hormone replacement therapy is relatively effective at controlling the symptoms of menopause. Every woman will experience those symptoms differently. Some will have very mild symptoms, while other women have extremely severe symptoms that can be debilitating and uncomfortable. A gynecologist will carefully evaluate the woman’s condition, as well as any reproductive health issues she may have. Once the doctor has all of the necessary information, he will be able to prescribe the appropriate levels of hormones and create an HRT program that will best suit the woman’s needs.

What are the sides effects of HRT?

While HRT provides many benefits to women in menopause, there are some health risks associated with the treatment. These side effects can range from mild, such as bloating, mood swings, acne, and headaches to the more serious uncommon side effects of blot clots and cancer. Your doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of HRT with you, answering questions to ensure that you are empowered to make the safest and best decision for your health and wellbeing.
