Female Patient - HRT Treatment

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT for short, is a form of treatment available to women who are experiencing menopause-related symptoms. As you approach menopause, certain hormone levels may decrease, and so HRT can be used to return these levels back to normal. 

Combined HRT tablets - one of the most common ways to take HRT, they contain both oestrogen and progestogen. There are many different tablets available. They are especially effective at treating the short-term side effects of the menopause.
