There are two answers to this question.
#1 Hormone Replacement Therapy, which traditionally has been associated with giving women estradiol and or progestin. #2 personally we use Natural Hormone Therapy, which consists of evaluating one's hormones, many times with saliva testing, and treating with Bioidentical hormones once we have identified the deficiencies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gahgweu

In brief: Hormone

Hormone replacement therapy is needed when your doctor determines that one or more hormones is not working well enough.
You will then be prescribed appropriate hormone replacement and followed up by the doctor regularly.
