Do not worry – you are not alone! The menopause is something that affects all women as they get older and it can be a difficult time thanks to the myriad of changes that are going on in the body. The good news is that the unpleasant side effects of ‘the change’ can be alleviated with the help of hormone replacement therapy.

What is the Menopause?

As we age, our ovaries stop releasing eggs and start to produce less estrogen because we are no longer in the ‘child bearing’ phase of our lives. Over time women will cease menstruation – this happens gradually and is known as the menopause. Once you have had no menstrual period for a year you will be considered postmenopausal. The menopause generally occurs around the age of 50.

The Symptoms of Menopause

There are many symptoms that are related to the menopause. Some of these are simply unpleasant and last for only a short time while others are more long term and can be a little more serious. Some common symptoms include, but are not limited to :

  • mood swings
  • hot flashes
  • night sweats
  • insomnia
  • hair loss
  • osteoporosis
  • weight gain
  • loss of sex drive

How Could HRT Help?

Hormone replacement therapy can help to relieve most of the symptoms women experience during the menopause. We use bioidentical hormones to replace those that are deficient including progesterone and estrogen. This will help to improve your quality of life and allow you to start feeling like yourself again. Hormone replacement therapy can also help to prevent more serious effects of the menopause such as osteoporosis.
