Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for You?

Hormone replacement therapy is a form of treatment that is usually recommended by doctors for women who are at the menopause stage. Women have less testosterone as they only produce one-tenth to one-twentieth of the amount of testosterone as men. The treatment is used to regulate the signs and symptoms. Below is important information that will help you determine whether the treatment is suitable and appropriate for you.

Importance of Hormone Replacement Therapy

The hormone replacement treatment has proven to be both effective and efficient for people that experience menopause at an early age or have a deficiency of estrogen in their bodies. Surgical procedures such as the removal of your ovaries before the age of 45 or the loss of normal functioning of your ovaries before the age of 40 are among the top reasons why there is an estrogen deficiency in your body. Hormone replacement therapy also reduces the likelihood of you suffering from diseases such as dementia, stroke, and heart disease.

If you are constantly experiencing severe hot flashes, then hormone replacement treatment will help you overcome this challenge. The treatment relieves you from night sweats. The hormone replacement therapy introduces estrogen that helps regulate vaginal symptoms such as dryness and itching. The therapy reduces your chances of suffering from diseases like osteoporosis that lead to bone loss and fractures.

Risks of Hormone Replacement Therapy

The hormone replacement treatment also comes with its fair share of risks and disadvantages. The use of the treatment increases your chances of developing severe conditions such as breast cancer, blood clots, and heart disease. However, these may be dependent on a couple of factors, such as age and your health history. If you begin your hormone replacement treatment years later after your menopause condition has advanced, you are likely to develop the above diseases. Your family's health records also determine whether hormone replacement therapy will be an effective treatment for you. Your family may have a long history of hereditary diseases that may disrupt the effectiveness and efficiency of the treatment.

Ultimately, hormone replacement treatment may or may not work for you, depending on a couple of factors. It is therefore important to seek guidance from a doctor before engaging in the therapy. The doctor will advise you accordingly based on facts gathered from your health assessment and the signs and symptom you are exhibiting. However, making healthier lifestyle choices and regular follow-up sessions with your doctor will further enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the treatment.
