To relieve the symptoms of menopause, doctors may prescribe hormone therapy. This can involve the use of either estrogen alone or with another hormone called progesterone, or progestin in its synthetic form. Hormone therapy can relieve many menopausal symptoms and prevent or postpone diseases that afflict women later in life, but it might not be right for everyone. Come learn about the risk, benefits, potential side effects, and questions to ask your care provider.
If you or a loved one would like more information about menopause, hormone therapy and available options, please join us for a special seminar in the Red Hot Mamas® lecture series titled “Menopause & Hormone Therapy: Facts and Fiction.”
