Compounded Hormone Therapy for Postmenopausal Women

The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) was a large well-designed study intended to provide evidence regarding the use of hormone treatment to prevent cardiovascular disease in menopausal women. Now, almost 20 years since the initial publication of the WHI results, scientists have reanalyzed the WHI with significant insight that can change women’s health with appropriate use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). We have learned much about the characteristics of women who are likely to benefit from BHRT. Not all women are candidates for HRT, but for those who are and who begin HRT within 10 years of menopause, benefits are both short-term (help for hot flashes and painful intercourse), and long-term (bone health, coronary risk reduction). We welcome your questions.
