What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
HRT involves providing a form of the hormones your body is no longer producing in order to balance bodily processes. In addition to alleviating menopausal symptoms, recent research has found that beginning HRT at the time menopause begins may provide additional health benefits such as protection against heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and even dementia in later years.
Depending on the severity of your symptoms, Dr. Tsyba may determine that you would benefit from antidepressants or other medications as well.
Bleeding that occurs after menopause has begun may indicate a number of health issues.
Menopause can cause the tissue lining the uterus or vagina to thin, tear, and bleed – especially after sex. When the opposite problem occurs and the uterine lining thickens (which is called endometrial hyperplasia), it can also cause postmenopausal bleeding.
Uterine fibroids and polyps are another cause of postmenopausal bleeding. These growths develop in the tissue lining the uterus and are typically benign, although some polyps may develop into cancer.
Dr. Tsyba utilizes a number of safe, convenient in-office gynecological procedures that can address these issues.
