What is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Hormone replacement therapy, also known as HRT, is a treatment for women to relieve the common symptoms of menopause. It can replace hormones during menopause and in the time before the menopause (the perimenopause), when your hormone levels decrease. Menopause is a natural part of aging and is when a woman stops having periods. It happens because your ovaries stop producing as much oestrogen, which is a hormone. This means you no longer release an egg every month.

You will either take oestrogen on its own, or combined with progesterone. Oestrogen and progesterone will treat the symptoms of menopause, while progesterone alone can help the uterus lining to stay thin, which will prevent cancer in the uterus. You may take this as a tablet, or as a topical treatment. Topical oestrogens like ovestin, oestrogel, vagirux, and vagifem are all applied inside the vagina. Ovestin and oestrogel are creams, whilst vagirux and vagifem are vaginal tablets.

Oestrogen-only

This type of treatment involves taking only one hormone, oestrogen. Oestrogen-only treatment is recommended for women who have had their womb removed, during a hysterectomy. You can get oestrogen in many forms, including tablet, gel, and implant.

Topical oestrogen creams and tablets are applied into the vagina and are used to help with vagina dryness symptoms which can affect a lot of women in the menopause. This type of oestrogen-only HRT only works on the vagina area, so does not help with the other symptoms of menopause, like hot flushes. But, this also means that it does not have the same risks of HRT and can be used if you still have a womb.

Combined HRT

Combined treatment is for women who still have a womb and involves taking oestrogen and progestogen. Combined HRT is available in tablet form and skin patches. Depending on whether you are still having periods, and when your last period was, you will take this type of HRT in different ways.

If you still have periods, or your last period was in the last year, you should use Cyclical HRT. This is where you use oestrogen every day, and progestogen for just the last 2 weeks of the month.

If your periods stopped more than 12 months ago, you should use Continuous HRT. This means using oestrogen and progestogen every day continuously.

You should speak to your doctor before starting HRT to make sure it is suitable for you. You can start taking HRT as soon as you get menopausal symptoms. We also offer a menopause test, to see if you are in the menopausal stages.

Once your menopause symptoms pass, usually within a few years, you can stop taking HRT. There is not a time limit on this, but you should check in with your doctor at least once a year to make sure that it is still safe for you to keep using it. When you do choose to stop, you can do this suddenly or slowly, depending on how you feel. Usually, if you stop taking it slowly, there is less chance of your symptoms coming back.
