HRT - The risks & side effects

Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, is a treatment used to manage the symptoms of menopause in women. Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her periods stop completely, marking the end of her reproductive years. Menopause affects women differently, with some women having minimal symptoms or signs of this change, and other women suffering from unbearable symptoms. Women who struggle with the symptoms of the menopause may want to try the treatment, but have concerns about hormone replacement therapy side effects.

Menopause
Menopause tends to occur between the ages of 49 or 52, but the range is much larger. The symptoms and signs of menopause can include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sexual dysfunction, accelerated bone loss and accelerated ageing of the skin. These are brought about by the natural decline in the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Hormone replacement therapy aims to replace these hormones to lessen the symptoms of menopause. At Pharmacy Planet, we understand HRT risks and benefits, enabling us to help you make an informed decision in managing your menopause.

At Pharmacy Planet, you can buy Estraderm MX Patches online in the UK to help relieve menopausal symptoms. Patches are applied to the skin and they release a small amount of estradiol, a type of oestrogen, straight into the body. They are ideal for women without a uterus. Women who have a uterus must also take a progestin medication to prevent the side effects associated with using oestrogen alone.

HRT Risks and Benefits
Before taking any medication, it is important to consider the risks and benefits. The benefit of HRT is that it reduces the unpleasant side effects associated with menopause. HRT can increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. It also increases your risk of getting a blood clot. Although the risks are small, it is important to be fully informed before starting HRT. There are also some hormone replacement therapy side effects to be aware of, which may include headache, diarrhoea, weight changes, fluid retention and breast tenderness or enlargement.
