A new study has shown that women have very little to fear from a properly prescribed course of HRT treatment.
Senior researchers at the University of Nottingham recently concluded a large-scale study, involving more than half a million women aged between 50 and 79.
The scale and depth of the study has allowed researchers to learn more about the comparative benefits of different HRT treatments, as well as the effects of different durations of treatment.
Which HRT Is Right For Me?
We recommend choosing an HRT treatment that takes into account your medical history. Women who have undergone a hysterectomy are best suited to an oestrogen-based hormone replacement therapy. For women who haven’t undergone this procedure, a combined HRT treatment (oestrogen + progestogen) is recommended.
Our London hormone clinic will be happy to advise you about the different kinds of progestogen used in the different treatments available, and we’ll help you find the treatment most suitable for your needs.
Factors that might affect our hormone replacement therapy recommendations include;
- Your age
- Your medical history and physical condition
- The stage of menopause you are experiencing, and how long treatment needs to last
- Any previous experiences using HRT you may have had.
The Benefits Of HRT
HRT has provided huge benefits for women all over the world, as they struggle with the many physical challenges that can occur during the menopause.
These can include:
- Unusually heavy/unpredictable period cycles
- Hot flushes and night sweats
- Mood swings
- Anxiety and irritation
- Memory and concentration loss
- Reduced sex drive
- Vaginal dryness and pain
- Heart palpitations
- Reduction in muscle mass.
- Urinary tract infections.
- Increased risk of osteoporosis
The menopause and its symptoms can often last for several years, so it’s vital that you work with qualified medical professionals to identify the right course of treatment for you. If administered correctly, hormone replacement therapy can be literally life-changing – many women have described it as a lifeline during what can be an extremely difficult time, regardless of your previous reproductive history.
