The decision for longer-term MHT use comes down to what we know about the science and research, what your symptoms and health history are, and what the risk-benefit ratio is for you. – Dr. Leah Millheiser
Why do I get all those disruptive symptoms?
Up to 80% of women will experience vasomotor symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats that range from bothersome to downright distressing. Then there's insomnia, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, painful sex, weight changes—the list goes on.
What is menopausal hormone therapy and can it help me?
Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) supplements the estrogen and progesterone your body is producing less of. In the right individuals, research shows that MHT is the most effective approach for reducing menopause symptoms.
What is estrogen?
In addition to its well-known role in pregnancy, estrogen contributes to bone density, cognitive function, and heart health. Estradiol is the main form of estrogen found circulating in the female body, and it’s what Evernow prescribes.
What is progesterone?
Progesterone affects sleep and mood. For women who still have their uterus, progesterone is added to a menopausal hormone therapy regimen containing estrogen in order to protect the uterine lining.
Is MHT for me?
MHT has been proven to be the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms. However, having certain medical conditions may mean taking MHT is not appropriate. If this is the case for you, nonhormonal therapy may be an option. To find out what works for you, connect with one of our menopause specialists to begin the evaluation process: we carefully review your health history and symptoms to determine what course of action to take to reduce your symptoms.
