Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
When it comes to menopause treatments, the first thing that springs to mind for many is HRT. There is good reason for this: HRT is a medically proven treatment that helps with most symptoms of menopause.
HRT comes in many different forms. It can be tailored to suit you, including whether or not you have periods and whether you would prefer a daily tablet or a patch changed every few days.
- HRT may be a good option for you if:
- You want help with troublesome symptoms of menopause
- You want a medically proven treatment
- You don’t mind taking medication
However, HRT is not for everyone. Some women prefer to go ‘hormone-free’ through menopause, and some will have symptoms mild enough that they do not need it. Others will have a medical reason that makes HRT unsafe for them. You can find information on non-hormonal treatments across this website.
