  1. Postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy : clinical implications.

    Article - En anglais

    The menopause is defined as cessation of menstruation, ending the fertile period.

    The hormonal changes are a decrease in progesterone level, followed by a marked decrease in estrogen production.

    Symptoms associated with these hormonal changes may advocate for hormonal replacement therapy.

    This review is based on the English-language literature on the effect of estrogen therapy and estrogen plus progestin therapy on postmenopausal women.

    The advantages of hormone replacement therapy are regulation of dysfunctional uterine bleeding, relief of hot flushes, and prevention of atrophic changes in the urogenital tract.

    Women at risk of osteoporosis will benefit from hormone replacement therapy.
