Estrogen / Progesterone Replacement Therapy

ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

As women age, the body’s natural production of estrogen hormonal levels decreases usually starting between the ages of 45 – 55. Menopause is a natural stage in the aging process, which signifies the end of menstrual periods and a major shift in hormone levels. The natural aging process, in addition to surgical removal of the ovaries commonly lowers the levels of estrogen commonly referred to as “Pre- menopause”, “Peri-menopause” or “Menopause”. Progesterone hormone replacement primarily balances estrogen.
