Is HRT safe?
Navigating the menopause can be tough. This is partly because your body starts making less oestrogen - a hormone that plays its part in a range of your body’s functions. If you’re struggling with the symptoms associated with the menopause, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help, but is it always safe?
First of all, everyone is unique - so different people might experience different side effects with different treatments. The form of HRT used, the types of hormones it contains and when it’s used for the first time can all influence its effects. Your age and health status can also determine the safest type and form of HRT for you. Your clinician can advise you of which HRT can be most safe for your age and medical history.
