HRT: The Blessing Post Menopause

To Menstruate or not that is the question.

We, women, know very well what we go through on those days every month till we reach menopause. In the meantime, we just can’t stop but imagine how lucky all those women are to have bid goodbye to all those mood swings, cramps, craving, emotional roller coaster rides etcetera.

But you know the grass is always greener on the other side.

While we are calling it a boon to have reached menopause, women who are now on the other side of the line are telling a different tale.

Women experience some of the worst menopausal symptoms that we can have ever imagined of, including hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness and loss of sexual desire, apart from this, women experience symptoms like heart palpitations, joint and muscle aches, headaches, bladder problems and depression.

Ladies all your worries now have a better solution and all thanks to the recent works on medicinal development. Hormone Replacement Therapy or HRT is the word for you all ladies who are currently going through all the menopausal symptoms.

Well for all those who are yet not aware of the term or the treatment, HRT is a process to replace the hormones that a woman's body is no longer producing because of the menopause. The two hormones that are used in HRT are Oestrogen and Progestogen.

According to recent studies this therapy prevents or reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in women. It even prevents the risk of breast cancer in women, heart diseases and cut in half the risk of osteoporosis. Studies say women who have gone through the procedure live longer than those who haven’t.

Although this therapy has not yet made it to the headlines, you know the secret already. Consult your doctor and take good care of yourself ladies!
