Menopause is a natural process that all women will experience. The exact experience of menopause varies from woman to woman, but in most cases, it is marked by an absence of menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months. While there is no way to stop menopause from happening, there are ways to manage the physical and emotional symptoms associated with this stage in life:
Estrogen-containing medications can help minimize common menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. In addition to relieving these bothersome symptoms, estrogen can also help protect against osteoporosis by increasing bone density. However, these medications should be used carefully as they come with certain risks including an increased risk of breast cancer and blood clots.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) involves taking estrogen combined with a synthetic version of progesterone called Progestin. HRT helps reduce the severity of menopausal symptoms while also providing protection against osteoporosis like estrogen-only medications. Unlike estrogen-only medication however, HRT also carries a slightly increased risk of stroke and heart attack which must be taken into consideration when deciding between the two forms of care.
