Hormone replacement therapy also known as menopausal hormone therapy helps balance the women hormones near menopause or in some cases during menopause. It helps reduce the chances of osteoporosis.
The therapy includes doses of progesterone and estrogen. Some contain both, some either only one. These help relief the hot flashes and sweating among the many other symptoms that come with menopause. Menopause is not an illness basically. It is a phase that starts at a certain age. Women nearing the age of 50 or after experience it. Therapy helps them restore to some extent the changes that they go through. The mood swings, hair loss, irritated behavior, urinary problems, night sweats are reduced or just simply stop.
