Who Should Consider Hormone Therapy?

IF YOU ARE A WOMAN WHO IS GETTING OLDER OR EXPERIENCING THE RESULTS OF AGING..

If you are a woman who is getting older or experiencing the results of aging, hormone replacement therapy is probably something that has either been recommended or at least brought to your attention.

Systemic estrogen is still the most effective treatment for menopausal symptoms in women. If you’re healthy and experiencing the following symptoms, hormone therapy is something you should consider:

Moderate to severe hot flashes or other menopausal symptoms, Losing bone mass and either can’t tolerate or aren’t benefiting from other treatments, Stopped having periods before age 40 (premature menopause) or lost normal function of your ovaries before age 40 (premature ovarian insufficiency)

Women who experience an early menopause, particularly those who had their ovaries removed and don’t take estrogen therapy until at least age 45, have a higher risk of: Osteoporosis, Coronary heart disease, Early death, Parkinsonism (Parkinson’s-like symptoms), Anxiety or depression

Early menopause typically lowers the risk of most types of breast cancer. For women who reach menopause prematurely, the protective benefits of hormone therapy are something you should seriously consider.

Your age, type of menopause and time since menopause play a significant role in whether hormone therapy is right for you. Your age management physician will conduct an initial consultation with you and draw blood for testing. Based on the results of these and other evaluations, your physician will formulate an optimal hormone replacement regimen that is specifically tailored to your needs.
