    Will HRT restore dry vagina which has stopped our sex life?

      Hi Alastair It is not always guaranteed that HRT would reslove this but some women do find an oestrogen pessary can be of benefit. However, this is something that needs to be discussed with the doctor first.

      Hello Chrisitin, HRT is a personal choice for some women. HRT artificially replaces the female hormones no longer produced after menopause and involves taking small doses of these hormones, oestrogen or progesterone. However, you may find HRT simply postpones the menopause and some women suffer side effects again when they come off it. If I can be of further assistance let me know.

    Are these tablets made from organic or genetically modified soya?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
