Uses of C Gest Softgel capsule Capsule
Description of Hormone replacement therapy
Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her period stops. It is a normal part of aging. In the years before and during menopause, the levels of female hormones can go up and down. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Some women take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also called menopausal hormone therapy, to relieve these symptoms. HRT may also protect against osteoporosis.
However, HRT also has risks such as:
1. Breast cancer
2. Heart disease
Certain types of HRT have a higher risk, and each woman's own risks can vary depending upon her health history and lifestyle.
