Knowing what to expect can ease the emotional burden and help you seek appropriate management strategies.

This section will delve into the benefits and risks of HRT, helping you make an informed decision with your healthcare provider. We will also discuss alternatives to HRT, such as lifestyle changes and complementary therapies.
