Re: can someone please tell me what hrt does to relieve symtons of postmeno?? please

Menopausal symptoms are caused by a loss of estrogen production in the body. HRT (hormone replacement therapy) replaces the estrogen. It's like taking an iron pill if you are iron deficient. The problems you are experiencing are due to a lack of hormone production. HRT replaces that. Make sense?

I have never understood why a woman would want to take anti-depressants for a condition caused by low hormone production. It's like taking a vitamin when you have a headache. Only anti-depressants are drugs that can impact your driving, operating machinery, etc. No thank you! I quit my gyno that prescribed belladonna for perimenopause. I don't want to be drugged! I want to be myself.

It took about 2 weeks, maybe 3, before all my symptoms went away. Everyone is different...and there are many HRT meds on the market. So, what works for one might not work as well for another. It can be trial and error.....good luck!
