Perimenopause and menopause is a difficult transition period for women which can last up to 8 years. Decrease in hormone levels over a short period of time can lead to a myriad of unwanted symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, irritability, breast pain, sleeping disorders, bloatedness and weight gain, decrease in libido, vaginal dryness, mood disturbances and skin aging.
A woman’s risk of heart disease, cancer and thinning of the bones also significantly increases after menopause and it is therefore also very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and undergo routine screening.
The 2 main female hormones that are important to balance out in the body are Oestrogen and Progesterone.
There are several preparations which can be used to introduce hormones into the body such as topical creams applied onto the skin, oral tablets, troches placed under the tongue and pessaries or other topical applications which are inserted directly into the vagina. Depending on the symptoms and indication for hormone replacement the 2 most common preparations are creams for skin and/or vaginal application.
Firstly, all our treatment protocols are based on safety and efficacy of clinical data.
Secondly, before commencing on any hormone replacement therapy our patients are thoroughly counselled on the risks and benefits involved. A comprehensive women’s health check is done to screen for any pre-existing conditions which may affect the decision for treatment.
To learn more about hormone replacement therapy please book an appointment with our female doctors to answer and queries you may have.
