Dangers of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

dangers of hrt (hormone replacement therapy)

If you’re one of the millions of women suffering from menopause symptoms, it’s worth learning about the dangers of hormone replacement therapy. Learning about HRT risks might lead to you decide to seek out natural menopause treatments as a better alternative to provide relief.

What is HRT Used For?

In widespread use since the 1960s, hormone replacement therapy is most commonly prescribed for menopause symptoms like:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Urinary problems
  • Preventing osteoporosis

While many women have in fact noticed relief from certain menopausal symptoms after starting hormone replacement therapy, there have been a number of health risks uncovered related to both short-term and long-term use of HRT. Long-term use (ten years or more) of certain hormones formulas has proved to result in a significant increase in health risks such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Blood clots
  • Stroke

Is There a Link Between HRT and Cancer?

Scarily, yes.

There are two main types of hormone replacement therapy, and each has a different influence on cancer.

Estrogen-only HRT – Can increase the risk of ovarian cancer. When used for ten years or more, can also increase the risk of breast cancer.

Combination HRT (taking both estrogen and progesterone) – Can increase the risk of breast cancer by an alarming 75%, even if not used on a long-term basis. In fact, your risk for cancer increases the most during the first two to three years of taking these hormones. But undergoing combination HRT does more than just increase the likelihood of being diagnosed with cancer. It can also increase the chance that the cancer will be at a more advanced stage when it is found. Even worse, it can also lead to a higher chance that the patient will actually lose their battle to cancer.

These statistics apply to both synthetic and “natural” or “bio-identical” hormone replacement therapy.

If you or a woman you care about is considering undergoing HRT to help with menopause symptoms, please research your options. Talk to your doctor about all the possible risks as well as alternatives that might be available to you.
