All About Imbalanced Hormones After Menopause

Menopause is a milestone in a woman’s life. She leaves behind her childbearing years and enters a new phase. For many women, the transition is easy, but others experience imbalanced hormones after menopause, which can cause a variety of unpleasant side effects. If you are undergoing menopause and struggling to cope with imbalanced hormones, you might want to explore hormone replacement therapy to help you feel better.
