Hormone Replacement Therapy: What Women Need to Know, Creve Coeur, Missouri

Hormone replacement therapy is used to help balance estrogen and progesterone in women around the time of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help relieve sweating, hot flashes, and other symptoms of menopause such as sleep problems, moodiness, vaginal dryness and bone thinning or osteoporosis. When should you consider hormone replacement therapy? Women with moderate to severe natural menopause symptoms or women who have had a hysterectomy or surgical menopause are candidates for hormone replacement therapy. 

What are some indications that you need menopausal hormone replacement therapy? The most common indication is vasomotor symptoms, otherwise known as hot flashes.  Another common indication is vulvovaginal atrophy. This occurs when the epithelial linings of the vagina and the urethra are sensitive to estrogen, and estrogen deficiency leads to thinning of the vaginal epithelium. Some other more noticeably signs may be mood lability or depression and joint aches and pains. 

There are various types of hormone replacement therapy which uses different combinations and delivery of hormones. This may include creams,  gels, pellets, injections, capsules or skin patches..
