Menopausal Hormone Replacement Therapy Breaking News

By May 23, 2015November 1st, 2021No Comments2 min read
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota presented interesting data at a prestigious conference recently. Here they proved that menopausal hormone replacement therapy does not in fact appear to affect the fatality rate in women who take it. This is excellent news for those who were afraid to participate and now no longer need to worry. Each patient’s individual circumstances will be under scrutiny before they are allowed to go under the therapy. In order to do this, physicians and women will take a proactive role in the decision making process, especially when discussing their menopausal health. This new information dispelled the 2002 WHI study reporting that women were at an increased risk for a heart attack, stroke or cancers of the breast, lung, colon and ovaries.

Other studies even suggested that there is an estrogen window where patients can benefit most from hormone replacement therapy if taken 10 years prior to menopause.
Research also suggested that symptoms associated with menopause may last longer that what was previously reported, and the sooner that they start, the longer that they could last. The longest duration of symptoms occurred most in African American women. While some studies thought that signs such as decreased libido and hot flashes lasted between three to five years, others suggested possibly 13 years.

If you’re experiencing symptoms that include a change in sleep patterns, weight gain, foggy brain, moodiness, hot flashes, night sweats and a lack of libido, your prayers have been answered. You now have the ability to get your life back and live it to the fullest.
