The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) recently published an article discussing estrogen therapy.
As women age, the levels of estrogen fall, especially when they reach menopause. During this phase, women are at greater risk for various health issues, including osteoporosis. Menopause typically happens when a woman is in her fifties, and the symptoms of it can last as long as three years. With hormone replacement therapy, a woman can help her body maintain its natural levels and also potentially reduce the risk of heart disease or even breast cancer.
Hormone or estrogen replacement therapy has made significant advances to the point where receiving the therapy does not necessarily have to involve surgery. Nowadays, there are multiple ways to receive treatment, from pills to creams, patches, and more. Your doctor will help you determine what method is safest and works best.
Now you may be wondering why it’s worth considering hormone replacement. For starters, the estrogen hormone assists with processing calcium, which is essential in making sure bones stay strong. It also helps with maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, keeping the vagina healthy, and boosting a woman’s sex drive.
Estrogen therapy is not a miracle cure for all of the changes a woman’s body will go through during menopause, but it will go a tremendously long way in helping ease the changes and staving off a number of health risks.
