Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) replenishes the levels of hormones that your body is producing less and less of. The hormones that are decreasing and cause menopause are estrogen and progesterone. Testosterone also decreases dramatically. HRT can replace the levels of these hormones to combat the symptoms of menopause and prevent the development of long-term diseases that occur due to hormone deficiencies. The goal of HRT is to help your body attain healthy, balanced hormone levels.
