What is Hormonal Therapy?
Hormonal replacement therapy prescription medications most often include oral, transdermal (with a patch), and vaginal estrogen as well as progestin therapy for people with a uterus. The decision to use hormonal replacement therapy is based on an individual’s personal preferences and related medical considerations. The North American Menopause Society is an excellent resource for information related to menopause.
The term perimenopause refers to the transitional phase that comes before menopause. The perimenopause may last for several years and be associated with shorter or longer menstrual cycles, irregular or heavy bleeding, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and other symptoms. Ovarian function during the perimenopause is variable and there are many medical options that our clinic can offer to help with perimenopausal symptoms.
