Would taking HRT help strengthen my pelvic tissues ??

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Yes HRT will help in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles and the bladder support.Estrogen vaginal cream can be used instead of oral pills to reduce side effects.Pelvic floor exercises daily also should be performed.Well fitted vaginal pessary is another good option.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for asking further questions!This is the link to my profile:
