Although a natural event in every woman’s life, menopause can be a difficult time. Mood swings, aching, hot flushes are all symptoms of menopause. Some more extreme symptoms can be difficult to manage and can start to affect your everyday life and personal relationships. As women age, the natural levels of oestrogen begin to decline. Premarin is an example of HRT (Hormone replacement therapy) and is designed to increase hormone levels within the body and alleviate the symptoms of menopause.

Oral HRT is designed for women who have not had a period in 12 consecutive months. This form of medication usually contains estradiol. This works to replace oestrogen deficiency and a synthetic form of progesterone.
Some tablets contain both hormones; some have a 14-day cycle of a single hormone with a 14-day cycle of combined hormones or can contain only oestrogen.
The purpose of HRT is to level out the hormone imbalance that occurs during menopause so that symptoms are alleviated.
