5 major benefits of this treatment
Hormone replacement therapy has a number of advantages when it comes to your health. Five of these major benefits are:
1. Improves bone health
Osteoporosis is a real threat when you enter menopause. Estrogen is vital to maintaining your bone health. Hormone replacement therapy helps you keep your bone strong to avoid osteoporosis.
2. Decreases menopause symptoms
Hot flashes, night sweats, and difficulty sleeping are extremely common signs of menopause. These symptoms can be mild to severe, and interfere with your regular activities.
When you have hormone replacement therapy, your estrogen and progesterone are regulated, ultimately eliminating many of the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause.
3. Increases sex drive
Your libido significantly deteriorates as you get older, for both men and women. However, menopause also brings on vaginal dryness for women, making intercourse even less desirable.
Hormone replacement therapy restores the levels of your reproductive hormones. This brings back your sex drive, and helps with issues like vaginal dryness.
4. Gives your mood a boost
Your hormones are responsible for your mood, among many functions within your body. When your estrogen and progesterone decline as you age, you may experience depression or mood swings.
Hormone replacement therapy allows you to balance out the estrogen and progesterone in your body. This may significantly improve your mood and alleviate symptoms of depression.
5. Helps manage your weight
It helps with the hormonal component of weight gain. When your hormones are involved, it makes maintaining or losing weight so much harder.
With a healthy diet and regular physical activity, hormone replacement therapy may be able to help you improve your weight and your overall health.
