Hormone replacement therapy in menopause
Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman's reproductive years. It is characterized by a decline in estrogen and progesterone levels, which can cause a range of symptoms. In this webinar, we will explore the benefits and risks of HRT, the different types of HRT, and how to choose the right one for you. HRT is a type of medical treatment that involves supplementing the body with hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone. The goal of HRT is to alleviate the symptoms of menopause by restoring hormonal balance. HRT can be administered in various forms, including pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections. Estrogen-only therapy is recommended for women who have had a hysterectomy and do not have a uterus. Combined estrogen-progestin therapy is recommended for women who still have a uterus, as it reduces the risk of endometrial cancer.

Basics of endoscopy for Gynecology Treatment
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used in gynecology for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera (hysteroscope or laparoscope) into the vaginal or abdominal cavity to visualize and examine the reproductive organs, such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Gynecological endoscopy allows for the diagnosis of conditions like fibroids, polyps, and endometriosis, as well as the performance of surgical procedures like hysterectomy, myomectomy, and tubal ligation with smaller incisions and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery, making it a valuable tool in women's healthcare.
