About HT (HRT)
Hormone Therapy (HT) or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the giving of the female hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, and sometimes testosterone.
Oestrogen (also known as estrogen) and progesterone are produced in the ovaries during a woman’s reproductive life. At menopause, levels of these hormones fall dramatically until, in post-menopausal years, small amounts of each are produced by the adrenal glands instead of the ovaries.
Testosterone is produced by the adrenal glands and the ovaries. Levels decline gradually over a woman’s life, but are significantly reduced in women who have had both ovaries removed.
