Read up

    A woman’s reproductive system only continues to work optimally for a certain number of years, usually beginning in your early teens and stopping towards the end of your forties. This means that at the end of this time, your body will no longer produce or release an egg, and you will no longer experience periods.

    This, of course, can be a good thing (especially for women who have always experienced particularly heavy or painful periods) but in its place, you will experience a number of symptoms for roughly 4 years. These symptoms typically include mood fluctuations, struggles sleeping, hot flashes (of the face and neck), and a decreased libido.

    Contrary to popular belief, the menopause is not the same for all women and some people don’t find that it causes them any trouble at all. However, a lot of women choose to alleviate symptoms with HRT medication.

    Hormone Replacement Therapy (also known as HRT) is used by women as they begin to show signs of the menopause. This happens to women at various ages, and treatment can be started as soon as you begin to show symptoms.

    The medication contains the female hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. Oestrogen is responsible for many functions in a woman’s body, as well as a number of characteristics. When these levels start to fall, you begin to experience menopause symptoms, so topping these levels up with HRT medication helps to ward them off. A drop in oestrogen can also lead to osteoporosis (a bone mass deficiency), so it’s important to keep these hormone levels high to protect bone health.

    All HRT medications contain oestrogen (for the reasons stated above), but most of them also contain progestogen. This hormone is responsible for maintaining womb health and keeping certain cancers at bay. So although the drop doesn’t cause the menopause symptoms, it’s important to keep these levels healthy too. However, women without a womb (due to hysterectomy, for example) might opt for an oestrogen-only HRT medication.

    Most women will use Hormone Replacement Therapy for anywhere from 2 to 5 years, and then slowly decrease the dose once it’s time to stop taking it. During treatment, the medication is taken daily, or worn weekly (if you go for the hormone patch option), and there are a number of different types of HRT available, for which you can choose which is best suited to you. This can be ordered safely from UK Meds with the help of our trustworthy doctor’s service,

    Even though the medicine contains female hormones, it’s important to note that it’s not a contraceptive and if you are still having menstrual cycles then you could still get pregnant while taking it. Taking HRT can also carry risks of certain types of cancer, as well as blood clots, so it’s important that use is not long-term (unless advised by a doctor) and any symptoms are checked and reported.
