Are you looking for a solution to relief from menopause symptoms? Understanding about hormone replacement therapies can help you tackle this issue using the right method. At menopause, a woman’s oestrogen level falls at a high rate. This is accompanied by multiple disturbing symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.  Hormone Replacement Therapy can be the most effective treatment for menopause symptoms for anyone.

Now let’s talk about hormones replacement and some common ways to get it:

Oestrogen Therapy

According to professional doctors, a low dose of oestrogen for women with hysterectomy can have a great deal on their health. This surgery helps to remove the uterus. This type of medication comes in different forms. These include the daily oestrogen pill, patch, vaginal ring, gel, and even spray.

  • Oestrogen pill.

Pills are the most common type of treatment for menopausal symptoms. Some of the available pills include conjugated oestrogens or estrogens-bazedoxifene. To take these pills, simply ensure to follow your doctor’s prescription. For instance, they should be taken once a day without food. Other pills, however, have more complicated dosing schedules and one should be strict. You should be aware that estradiol pills contain the same level of oestrogen that the ovary makes before menopause.

  • Oestrogen patch

Women can also wear a patch on the skin of their abdomen. Depending on the dose, some patches are replaced every few days, while others can be worn for a week. Some of the common patched include Aloha, Climara, Estraderm, and Vielle-Dot. Combination oestrogen and progestin patches are also available. Minstar has a lower dose of oestrogen than other patches, and it’s only used for reducing the risk of osteoporosis. It doesn’t help with other menopause symptoms.

  • Topical Oestrogen

Commonly creams, gels, and sprays have different ingredients that help in getting oestrogen into a woman’s body system. Some of the common patches mostly work just like gels screams and sprays. Just like patches this type of oestrogen treatment is absorbed through the skin directly into the bloodstream. The specifics on how to apply these creams vary, although they’re usually used once a day. Oestrogen is applied on one arm, from the wrist to the shoulder. Estrasorb is applied to the legs. Evamist is applied to the arm.

  • Vaginal oestrogen

Vaginal oestrogen normally comes in a cream, vaginal ring, or vaginal oestrogen tablets. In general, these treatments are for women who are troubled specifically by vaginal dryness, itchiness, and burning or pain during intercourse. Some of the common include vaginal tablets creams and insertable rings. Dosing schedules vary, depending on the product. Most vaginal rings need to be replaced every three months. Vaginal tablets are often used daily for a couple of weeks; after that, you only need to use them twice a week. Creams might be used daily, several times a week, or according to a different schedule.
