Menopause and HRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

When To Start HRT

There is some debate as to when HRT should be started. Some gynecologists prefer to wait until the menopause is well established (perhaps a year after the menses cease) before starting HRT. Many doctors disagree with this approach. Significant discomfort and irreparable system damage may take place during that time. And nothing is gained. Most begin HRT during the Perimenopause especially since new evidence indicates that loss of bone mass may begin well before the cessation of menses.

Before administering HRT, you will have to go through some tests such as:
bulletA complete gynecological examination, including a Pap smear.
bulletA screening mammogram to look for any evidence of suspicious breast changes.

In some cases, laboratory blood analysis for blood lipids (cholesterols and triglycerides) may be indicated.
