Menopause occurs in a woman’s body when they stop producing eggs. This change causes a decrease in the production of the hormone oestrogen. This change in the menstrual cycle causes lots of negative symptoms. This is a gradual change in the body that occurs around the age of fifty. Menopause can even occur around the age of forty or earlier. If it has been a year since your last period you are in full menopause as compared to perimenopause which can last over a few years.

Some symptoms of this condition and slowdown in a woman’s reproductive cycle are hot sensations in your body, dryness and itching in the vagina, painful sex and loss of interest in having sex. Other problems include not sleeping and emotional like feeling depressed and tired. Some other problems include urinary and problems concentrating on things. With all these changes taking place in the body there are some Menopause Hormone Treatments available.
If some natural ways of treating this condition don’t work like eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise then hormone treatments are available for the discomfort of menopause. Hormone Replacement Therapy is available to help with the condition of menopause. This therapy helps to replace the female hormone of oestrogen. The level of oestrogen in the reproductive system of a female has dropped to a lower level and it is causing these negative symptoms.
There are three basic types of hormone therapy. The first one is to give the patient the hormone oestrogen and this is for women who have had their ovaries removed. The second one is a combination of hormones that includes both oestrogen and synthetic progestogen who are still having their periods. The third type is a continuous therapy for women after menopause.
By using these hormone treatments you are replacing the hormones to help make the body like it was before menopause. Oestrogen replacement can help again regulate the menstrual cycle lessening the symptoms that occur like hot flashes, irritability along with the others.
Another hormone progestogen is needed to take along with oestrogen in order for the hormone oestrogen to be safe. The synthetic form called progestogen is used in conjunction with oestrogen to keep your system safe. Progesterone is the natural hormone made by the body to maintain the uterus lining called the endometrium. If oestrogen is taken alone it is possible to develop uterine cancer. Hormone replacement Treatment is used to treat the symptoms by replacing these natural hormones in the body.
Hormone treatment therapy can be given in the form of patches, tablets, implants to name a few. There are some treatments for vaginal dryness that are safe and can be applied directly to the area. This usually is administered as a cream. Hormone Therapy can be stopped when the symptoms stop and this is no longer than about five years after menopause.
Hormone Treatments can be used right after you get the symptoms from menopause. These treatments might not be right for women with histories of breast, ovarian and uterine cancer. If you have high blood pressure you can’t take the treatments until you get this under control. Some side effects of taking these hormone treatments include depression, headaches and water retention.
The benefits are great for using hormone treatments over a short period of time being no more than five years. The quality of life is greatly increased by using hormone treatments for menopause. It even helps to reduce some cancer risks like rectum and colon. These hormone treatments for menopause are safe and effective if used under a doctor’s care.
