What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

We at Castillo’s Pharmacy are going to tell you all about it. As your primary compounding pharmacy in Cape Coral, we will ensure that you have all of the information you need.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that replaces hormones in the body that naturally decline during menopause, aging, or in some medical conditions. HRT is used to relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and osteoporosis. HRT is also used to prevent or treat other conditions that are related to a decrease in hormones such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and osteoporosis. HRT can be taken in various forms, including oral pills, skin patches, gels, creams, and other medical supplies. Should you need oral pills, we can provide you with compounding services that will make your experience much better.

As such, Hormone Replacement Therapy can be an effective way to relieve symptoms of menopause, prevent or treat conditions related to a decrease in hormones and improve overall health. However, it’s important to weigh the risks and benefits of HRT with a doctor and regularly re-evaluate the decision to continue HRT.
