One of the most common complaints from menopausal women is hot flashes - 80% of menopausal women suffer from them. Hot flashes can last 7-12 years on average. Women also report sleeping difficulties, moodiness, vaginal dryness, weight gain, and more.

Hormone therapy can help alleviate many of these symptoms, and Dr. Lauren Streicher helped dispel some of the myths surrounding the therapy. Hormone therapy delivers a smaller dose of estrogen than birth control pills, and some estrogen taken by mouth can even help lower cholesterol levels. Hormone therapy does not cause weight gain, and many women have benefited from it.
