In brief: Can be, depends

Hormones are powerful things! they should be prescribed by licensed practioners acting within their scope of practice! they can be helpful for hot flashes, painful sex, night sweats, and bone health.
Risks: blood clots, stroke, heart attacks. This is a personal decision between you and your doctor with a specific plan for results and followup. Fda approved=bioidentical!

In brief: YES

I utilize pellet therapy which follows the basics of how the body works best.
It combines a low dosage of key hormones w/ a delivery system (pellet implant) that functions similar to the human body. It releases hormones directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the GI tract and liver. They provide the hormone release needed for proper blood levels 24/7. For more info, visit www.Doctorscotts.Com.

In brief: Nothing is 100%

Would lean toward natural hormone over traditional hormone therapy.

In brief: Absolutely

If monitored appropriately, hrt is safe.
Most women have hormone imbalances that lead to menopausal symptoms many years before they actually are menopausal. We use the term ovarian dysfunction & treat accordingly based on serum evaluations.
