Hormone Replacement Therapy is any form of hormone therapy where in the patient, in course of medical treatment, receives hormones, either to supplement a lack of naturally occurring hormones, or to substitute other hormones for naturally occurring hormones.
Menopause, is the time in most women's lives when menstrual periods stop permanently, and the woman is no longer able to have children. Menopause typically occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. Medical professionals defined by a decrease in hormone production by the ovaries. In those who have had surgery to remove the uterus but still have ovaries, menopause generally occurs at the time of the surgery or when hormone levels fall. Following the removal of the uterus, symptoms typically occur earlier at the average of 45 years of age.
Estrogen and progesterone are female hormones that play important roles in a woman’s body. Falling levels cause a range of physical and emotional symptoms, including hot flushes, mood swings and vaginal dryness. The aim of hormone replacement therapy is to restore female hormone levels, allowing the body to function normally again.

Furthermore, UK-based NICE notes that hormone replacement therapy could be associated with breast cancer risk if the drugs oestrogen and progesterone are taken in combination. Prolonged consumption of HRT drugs could also lead to increased risk of blood clots. Studies have estimated that for every 1,000 women taking HRT tablets for 7.5 years, less than two will develop a blood clot. These restraints seem quite negligible when compared with the benefits of HRT.
