Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Counselling

HRT is also called Menopausal Hormone Therapy. Menopause is time when the woman’s period stops. It’s a normal result of aging. In the years before and during menopause the levels of female hormones can go up and down. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes in the face, neck and/ or chest plus vaginal dryness. Some women take Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to relieve these symptoms. When menopause comes, there is a greater chance of heart disease and osteoporosis. HRT can protect against these diseases.

Before menopause oestrogen (the female hormone) gives women some protection against those conditions, so when oestrogen levels goes down with starting of menopause, that advantage is over.

If you feel tired from menopause and you think that you may need HRT, We are here in Family Planning And Women Health Clinic can check and provide the accurate HRT plans that should be given to you. We have various prescription products to treat hot flashes and vaginal symptoms. Some are also recommended to prevent osteoporosis.
