Also known as menopausal hormone therapy or postmenopausal hormone therapy, hormone replacement therapy is a treatment used to relieve symptoms of menopause.

As women approach menopause, certain hormone levels decline. As hormones regulate functions such as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood, among others, it is not uncommon for menopausal women to report experiencing uncomfortable symptoms as a direct result.

Menopause symptoms can include, but are not limited to;

  • Hot flushes
  • Vaginal laxity, itching & inflammation
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss, dry skin & dry eyes
  • Low energy & fatigue
  • Disrupted sleep & insomnia
  • Reduced interest in socialising or feeling isolated
  • Mood changes, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety & panic attacks
  • Vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, lack of libido & reduced sexual enjoyment
  • Urinary leakage & stress urinary incontinence (SUI), & increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTI)

Hormone replacement therapy can alleviate these symptoms by delivering precise duplicates of the hormones that the body is no longer producing (body identical), or a compound to achieve similar results (bio-identical).

In addition to easing symptoms, continued hormone replacement therapy is linked with a reduction of cardiac events such as heart attacks and strokes, reduction of musculoskeletal concerns including osteoporosis and collagen reduction, and protection from cognitive concerns including dementia.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does it take for HRT to start working?

HRT will start working right away. Most patients notice significant improvements after a few weeks and will feel the full effects up to three months after beginning treatment.

Will HRT help me sleep?

YES. Depending on the cause of the sleep disturbance. If the sleep disturbances is caused by vasomotor symptoms, estrogen surges can be the root cause. Similarly, progesterone has been shown to improve sleep quality.

Do you have periods with HRT?

That depends. Patients who begin HRT before their last period will take hormones cyclically and will continue to have their periods.

Patients who have not had a period for a year or longer will take HRT continuously. They will not have periods but may experience a bit of irregular bleeding or spotting when starting HRT. This should not last more than 6 months.

How do I know if HRT is suitable for me?

Factors such as family and personal medical history are important in determining whether hormone replacement therapy is appropriate for you. The doctor will assess your risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, blood clots, liver disease and osteoporosis.

Does every woman need HRT?

Though symptoms of menopause may not require treatment, the potential long-term benefits of HRT to cardiovascular health, musculoskeletal health, and cognitive functioning may warrant receiving treatment.

What are the signs that you need hormone replacement therapy?

Women can start taking HRT as soon as they begin to experience signs of menopause. These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Hot flushes
  • Vaginal laxity, itching & inflammation
  • Vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, lack of libido & reduced sexual enjoyment
  • Urinary leakage & stress urinary incontinence (SUI), & increased risk of urinary tract infections (UTI)
