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.
