Are there any side effects to taking hormone replacement therapy?
A sudden increase in hormones in the body may trigger certain short-term side effects such as increased hair growth on the face as well as an outbreak of acne. Women may experience sensitivity in their breasts and spotting. Some of these side effects will subside on their own after your body has adjusted to the therapy. Other symptoms like spotting can be alleviated through the ingestion of progesterone capsules at bedtime.
