All women go through menopause, the natural time of life when their menstrual periods stop for good. For some, the side effects of the unsteady drop of hormones, like estrogen and progesterone, can be severe and interfere with their quality of life.
Hormone therapy may be an effective way to rebalance hormones that start to decline in the years leading up to and after reaching menopause.
A drop in hormone levels does not only affect women as they age; men experience lower levels of testosterone due to aging, too. This is often called andropause or low-T.
