  3. Thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) – oestrogen helps to protect against bone thinning. With lower levels of oestrogen, bones can become thinner and therefore more prone to breaks or fractures.

What is HRT?

One treatment for menopause and perimenopause symptoms is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This replaces the hormones that are at low levels during menopause.

There are different types and doses of HRT. Using the right dose and type usually means your symptoms improve.

HRT comes as:

  • Skin patches
  • Gel or spray to put on the skin
  • Implants
  • Tablets

The benefit of HRT is that it can relieve most menopause and perimenopausal symptoms including hot flushes, brain fog, joint pains, mood swings and vaginal dryness. It can also reduce the risk of hormone-related health problems including osteoporosis and heart disease. As with all medications, there are some risks of HRT. Your doctor can discuss the benefits and risks with you in greater detail.
