What is Hormone Replacement Therapy: (or HRT)
It is a treatment using hormones to replace/replenish natural hormones – when the body does not make enough.
For instance, HRT may be given when the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormones or when the pituitary gland does not make enough growth hormones.
Additionally, Hormone replacement therapy can help balance estrogen and progesterone levels during or near menopause.
