  • Can nausea be a side effect of hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?

    Interesting article...

    Hormone replacement therapy is a common treatment for menopause. Women going through menopause see fluctuations and even drops in their hormone levels, and HRT aims to restore some of these hormones. If a woman is already going through harsh symptoms of menopause, she may also experience negative side effects from HRT, including nausea.

    HRT can reduce the risk of osteoporosis, colon cancer, and heart disease, but it could increase the risk of blood clots and breast cancer, on the other hand. Before getting on HRT, it’s important that you discuss all the pros and cons with your doctor.
