Menopause and hormone replacement therapy

The menopause is a period in women’s life when they lose the ability to
reproduce and their ovaries stop producing estrogen. In general, it
occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. The most usual treatment for
menopausal symptoms nowadays is hormone replacement therapy, but in the
past women didn’t have this kind of therapy at their disposal, so they
relied on natural remedies in order to reduce the symptoms. According to
some made studies, the hormone replacement therapy isn’t even the most
effective solution against menopause – in fact, it is possible to
increase the risk of several serious diseases and conditions including
stroke, breast cancer and dementia as well.

The menopause manifests through a variety of symptoms which include hot
flashes, mood changes, muscle loss, night sweats, voice changes,
sleeping problems, hair loss, irregular periods, weight gain, brittle
bones, vaginal dryness and pain during sex. Besides hormone replacement
therapy, doctors recommend a variety of drugs which can treat specific
symptoms during menopause, but instead of relying on them, you should
definitely try to take on menopause whole.
