Yes: If someone is going through a miserable menopause, suffering from intolerable hot flashes & night sweats, emotionality, depression, cloudy thinking, etc, hormone replacement might help. But we do not recommend hrt in asymptomatic women for preventive purposes anymore since there is risk associated w/this therapy.
