Many women will undergo menopause without incident, but others will experience bothersome effects resulting from declining estrogen levels. Vasomotor symptoms, which manifest as intense feelings of warmth, flushing, and perspiration, are the most common symptoms for which women seek treatment.

We review current Food Drug Administration-approved options for hormone therapy and discuss implications for practice and patient education.
