HRT involves taking medications that contain hormones to replace the ones our body is no longer producing. HRT has been used for decades and is safe to alleviate menopausal symptoms.
HRT has many health benefits such as prevention of osteoporosis, makes some women less likely to have heart disease and can lower your chances of dementia. But HRT is not without risk. Your Premier Healthcare for Women Physician will help tailor your treatment to keep you safe.
There are alternatives to treating menopausal symptoms without hormones. We are happy to discuss these options with you. Please call to schedule an appointment so we can assist you in choosing the treatment that is right for you.
