Understanding Estrogen Levels

Estrogen levels naturally fluctuate throughout life. In reproductive years, these levels cycle with menstruation.

Estrogen's Role in Menopause

Estrogen therapy balances hormones, reducing hot flashes, improving mood, and enhancing sleep, making the menopausal transition easier.

Estrogen Hormone Therapy

Estrogen hormone therapy can replenish declining hormone levels during menopause, but it does not always have to be the only way.
