The primary symptoms of peri/menopause such as hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats, and reduced libido have all been shown to improve.

There is no increased risk of heart disease in ladies who begin HRT within 10 years of menopause. In fact, there is a substantial increase in quality of life, even over a 30-year period, in women who begin taking HRT close to menopause.

The early HRT was administered in pill form, and that was processed through the liver. These days, body identical HRT is delivered in patches, gel or pellets. These new delivery methods radically change the health risk factors and even offer significant new protection against heart disease, cancers, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s. Indeed, there are very few treatments with such consistent data for reducing heart disease and overall mortality as postmenopausal HRT.

But HRT is not for everyone. What has your experience with HRT been?

Are you taking Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT? It used to be considered a very temporary treatment and it bore risks of heart disease and breast cancer. Things have changed a lot over the past 20 years, and new delivery methods have radically changed the risk factors. 

Many studies have been published which confirm significant benefits of taking HRT.
