The menopause is a normal life event for women and so it is not an illness or a medical condition. As the life expectancy of women has increased over the past century this means that on average, women spend nearly one-third of their lives being postmenopausal. Many women suffer in silence and do not realise how effective hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be at dramatically improving both their symptoms and also their quality of life.
This document provides you with an easy HRT prescribing guide.
