What is combined HRT?

Written by Joey Morgan - January 10, 2023

What is Combined HRT?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is an important medical treatment designed to reduce the symptoms of menopause and andropause in women and men, respectively. Combined HRT, also known as estrogen-progestin therapy, adds progesterone to the traditional estrogen HRT regimen. This combination is used to treat conditions related to a lack of both hormones in women, such as menopausal symptoms.

Benefits of Combined HRT

Combined HRT can offer numerous benefits for both men and women, including:

  • Relief from common symptoms associated with menopause or andropause, such as hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Improved quality of life due to improved sleep patterns and increased energy levels.
  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis due to increased calcium absorption caused by hormone balance.
  • Decreased risk of stroke or heart attack due to healthier blood vessels caused by hormone balance.
  • Improved mental health related issues such as depression, anxiety and cognitive decline.
  • Reduced risk for certain types of cancers due to balanced hormones reducing carcinogenic activity.

Potential Risks Involved with Combined HRT

All medical procedures come with some degree of risk involved and Combined HRT is no different. It's essential that you discuss any potential side effects with your doctor before beginning combined HRT treatment:

  • Blood clots due to altered clotting factors produced by combined medications;
  • Elevated risks for certain types of cancer such as breast cancer;
  • Increased risks for endometrial cancer;
  • Changes in cholesterol levels leading to cardiac concerns;
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting due to imbalances in hormones;
