Menopause is a natural part of the aging process and a period during which the female body undergoes a number of changes. Some women may not even notice a change in their bodies, but for others the drop in oestrogen that happens as a result of menopause can lead to a number of uncomfortable side effects. In this case HRT treatment may be recommended. These treatments works to stabilise hormone levels and reduce the risk of side effects.

Hormone replacement therapy mainly contains oestrogen or ingredients that work in a similar way to oestrogen, although some medications may also contain progestogen or have properties of natural testosterone.
Treatments just containing oestrogen are mostly intended for women who have had a hysterectomy as the addition of progestogen is intended to help keep the womb lining healthy and lower the risk of endometrial cancer.
HRT carries with it some risks, although it doesn't mean that it's unsafe for everybody to use. For women who would rather not use HRT to manage their symptoms, lifestyle adjustments could be helpful. Doing more exercise and avoiding foods that are too fatty can have an overall health benefits that can also reduce the severity of menopause symptoms. Some studies have shown that certain types of foods can also help, for example asparagus has been associated with a reduction in hot flushes, however you should always speak to your doctor before you consider any adjustments in your diet, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions. There are some women who find certain herbal supplements offer relief, although many of these aren't clinically proven to provide a result and may not do anything to reduce a woman's risk of osteoporosis.
