Manage episode 364237606 series 3340361
HRT is talked about a lot when it comes to menopause and it can be a really difficult decision whether or not it’s right for you.
In my opinion, HRT complements all the other things you're doing to manage your menopause; it’s not a magic pill, although for some it literally can be a life saver.
The most important thing you can do is GET INFORMED so that you can make the right choice for you.
Don’t rely on what you think you know or what someone else has told you, because you are unique and will have your own experience of menopause. What’s right for your friend, mother, sister may not be right for you.
So I was delighted this week to speak to HRT expert, Kate Organ, who is a British Menopause Society registered Menopause Specialist, founder & consultant pharmacist of The Menopause Specialists.
As a consultant clinical pharmacist she has expert knowledge in the way that HRT works, how it is processed by the body and its risks & benefits.

🎙️ How to know if you’re perimenopausal or not
🎙️ When blood tests are helpful
🎙️ The benefits and risks of HRT
🎙️ The different types of HRT and how to decide which type of HRT is right for you
