About this event
HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) can be life-changing for menopausal women and for most, the benefits will far outweigh any risks. However, over the years, the media has often focused on risks, and myths about HRT abound.
Join My Menopause Centre co-founder, Helen Normoyle, in conversation with Dr. Tonye Wokoma in this interactive and informative session, where they’ll cover:
- A quick recap on what the menopause is, the three stages in the menopause transition and the key symptoms
- The different types of HRT
- The benefits and risks of taking HRT
- The most common myths
- The questions she most frequently gets from patients
You will also get the opportunity to interact with the speakers and also ask any questions you have at the end of the session.
