Hormone Therapy During Menopause

Let’s get the slate clean regarding Hormone Therapy During Menopause. The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) results 10 years ago scared many women away from using hormone therapy (HT) altogether. Some toughed out their hot flashes and night sweats with no relief until the symptoms settled down on their own.

We’ve learned a lot since then about the risks and benefits of HT. For most women, experts agree that HT is okay to control moderate to severe menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, within 10 years of menopause and up to age 59. Also, women should use the lowest dose for the shortest amount of time needed to keep the symptoms under control.

But you and your healthcare provider need to balance the benefits and risks you have. For example, if you don’t have a uterus and can take estrogen therapy (ET) alone, your risks are different from those of women who still have a uterus and must use estrogen plus progestogen (EPT) to protect against uterine cancer.

While there are some risks to all the amazing benefits of Hormone Therapy During Menopause, we are offering a FREE CONSULTATION to answer all your questions so you can make an informed decision!

Here are just some of the benefits of
Hormone Therapy During Menopause.

Lessen hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness and the poor sleep, irritability, and “brain fog” that go with them.

Get relief from vaginal symptoms, such as thinning tissue and dryness, and the consequences, such as painful intercourse. (If you take low-dose oral or transdermal HT, you may need to add a vaginal estrogen to get relief.)

Ease overactive bladder—that “gotta go” problem—and maybe even recurring urinary tract infections with vaginal estrogen.

Protect your bones. Standard-dose HT helps prevent bone fractures later in life. If you are at high risk of broken bones or have early menopause, you may be able to take hormones earlier or longer. Check with your doctor.

Lower your risk of heart disease if—it’s a big if—you start HT within 10 years of menopause.

Help prevent diabetes. Good scientific evidence shows women who use HT have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
