    How Treatment Works

    The results of multiple studies support the effectiveness of hormone replacement therapy for management of menopausal symptoms. Estrogen may help with vaginal related health symptoms. There is some evidence that progesterone also helps to improve vasomotor symptoms.

    Testosterone may improve sexual drive and the number of satisfying sexual episodes for postmenopausal women. Testosterone may also improve lean muscle mass and mental clarity.

    Potential Risks of HRT

    The risk of HRT varies from patient to patient. Some of the factors that affect HRT risks include: age of onset of treatment, age of onset of menopause, hormone therapy replacement combinations and dosage, health factors such as heart and other cardiovascular conditions, cancer risks and family history. Some of these factors can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, blood clots and cancer. All of these factors should be considered and discussed with your medical provider in deciding whether HRT is right for you.

    Potential Benefits of Therapy

    Hormone replacement therapy is frequently prescribed to alleviate or reduce symptoms associated with menopause and other health related conditions such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats and bone loss. These benefits of HRT can lead to improved sleep, sexual relations and quality of life.
