The most effective way of treating symptoms during the perimenopause and menopause is to replace the hormones your body is no longer producing.
There are three female sex hormones, namely oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone. As levels began to fall various symptoms can become noticeable, some are more well known and spoken about, others less so. Everyone’s experience is as individual as they are, there is no one size fits all.
HRT is hormone treatment, designed to replace your own falling levels of hormone and in doing so improve the symptoms you have started to experience. Usually these improvements are felt within 3-6 months of starting HRT.
