Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Synthetic hormones are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and are available in pill, skin patch, gel, cream or spray form. The most widely used HRT is some combination of estrogen and progesterone. Synthetic estrogen is an oral conjugated equine estrogen (such as Premarin) and Progestin (a hormone that is synthetically produced and differs in structure from the progesterone found in the body). The two are prescribed together because estrogen alone, when not balanced by progesterone, can stimulate the growth of the uterine lining, increasing the risk of uterine cancer. While often proving beneficial and helpful to millions of women, HRT is not without risk of serious side effects/illness.
