HRT is a treatment option for menopausal symptoms that involves replacing the hormones that the body no longer produces. It can be taken in the form of pills, patches, gels, or creams.

Pros of HRT:

  • Can help alleviate hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings

  • Can improve sleep and energy levels

  • Can improve bone density, reducing the risk of osteoporosis

  • Can improve sexual function and libido

Cons of HRT:

  • May increase the risk of certain types of cancer, such as breast and ovarian cancer

  • May increase the risk of blood clots and stroke

  • May cause side effects such as nausea, bloating, and breast tenderness

  • May not be suitable for women with a history of cancer or blood clots

It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of HRT with your doctor before starting treatment. Dr. Okojie at Okojie Wellness can help you determine if HRT is the right choice for you. Don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation and take control of your menopausal symptoms today.
