Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy 02:17

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the use of exogenous female hormones to replace the loss of estrogen and progesterone during menopause. 

While HRT may help relieve menopausal symptoms, maintain muscle mass, and act as a preventative measure against osteoporosis, heart disease, and Alzheimer's, HRT may also increase the risk of cancer, or deep vein thrombosis.
