Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy

Every woman progresses through perimenopause and menopause in a different way.  The symptoms of menopause are extremely varied and can be very debilitating.  The majority of women who are close to their menopause are good candidates for hormone replacement therapy with FDA approved medications using either estrogen alone or estrogen in combination with progesterone.  The decision whether or not to use hormone replacement therapy needs to be made carefully with the risks and benefits of therapy discussed in detail with highly individualized care.
