HRT is an acronym for Hormone Replacement Therapy. HRT is a very common solution for women who are suffering from the effects of menopause like hot flashes and erratic sleep.
As women grow older, their ovaries become less efficient, and eventually, they stop working and menstruation ceases. Unfortunately, in the time leading up to this, falling estrogen levels can cause a variety of undesirable symptoms.
HRT corrects those symptoms of menopause by providing the body with the estrogen it needs. Although HRT can be an effective solution for women suffering from menopause, HRT can also cause dangerous side effects. Some of the side effects women have experienced from HRT include:
- Increased Risk of Heart Attack
- Blood Clots
- Increased Risk of Breast Cancer
- Breast Pain
- Increased Risk of Gallbladder Disease
