Abstract

Summary Side effects and contraindications connected with hormonal replacement therapy in climacterium resulted in search for new methods of softening menopausal symptoms. The aim of the following study was to evaluate, based on literature analysis, the effectiveness of phytohormonal therapy as an alternative method of relieving the symptoms of menopausal period and preventing the diseases connected with deficiency of estrogens after menopause. Phytoestrogens therapy reduces the number and strength of the vasomotor symptoms and improves serum lipid profile. Moreover, phytoestrogens show beneficial effects on bone tissue metabolism, skin and mucous membranes condition and are applicable in chemoprevention. This therapy is an effective method, allowing to avoid further changes in blood and urogenital systems, which result from estrogen stimulation deficiency. Phytoestrogens administration is an efficient method of relieving postmenopausal symptoms, facilitating the difficult menopausal period and keeping good health condition.
