Going through menopause is can be very tough which is why a lot of women look to hormone replacement therapy.

Those reports were a little premature with their claims as the research and science has improved over time and continues to be done.
So, if you’re looking into HRT, here are some of the FAQ’s:
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (or HRT)?
HRT is the medical practice of replacing hormones. This is normally needed for or elected by women going through menopause as aging, as well as a myraid of other factors, cause hormones to become imbalanced which has a detrimental effect on our health not to mention our quality of life.
Why the HRT Confusion?
According to MD Lynn Pattimakiel, when HRT first came out it was seen as a “fountain of youth”. But then in 2002, a big study came out saying that it could cause more health issues. Well, thanks to time, better research and technological advances, the risks were varied to specific individual cases. As the research continues to be done, the long-term benefits and risks continue to be found.
How Long Can I Take It?
This is something each individual will need to speak with their doctor about as each case can be different. However, the FDA recommends only using it for the shortest amount of time necessary/possible.
