Menopause is the time in a woman's life when her period stops. It is a normal part of aging. In the years before and during menopause, the levels of female hormones can go up and down. This can cause symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Some women take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also called menopausal hormone therapy, to relieve these symptoms. HRT may also protect against osteoporosis. Dr. Price, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN), will discuss the benefits and risks of HRT. She will also take questions from the audience.
