What are the safest methods of hormonal replacement for menopausal women. 

#nqlu my sexual energy is fading as I am now 60. I wonder if hormonal replacement might help but am concerned about negative side effects.

Hormone : Hormone replacement therapy (hrt) is a system of treatment with estrogen and Progesterone hormones for surgically menopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. The hrt treatment is based on the finding that estrogen supplementation after the menopause prevents physical and psychological discomfort caused by diminished circulating estrogen and Progesterone hormones. Evidence suggests that hrt reduces symptoms of depression, improves mood and energy, and improves cognition in postmenopausal women. However, it can also have significant side effects including pulmonary embolism and an increased risk for certain cancers. Research studies show that not all women benefit from hrt. It appears that the response to hrt depends on variations in the apolipoprotein e gene (also known as apoe). Women who are apoe ε3 allele carriers (slightly more than half of all women) show significant improvements in mood, memory and slowing of atherosclerosis progression with hrt. However, women who are apoe ε4 allele carriers (about 20% of all women) tend to benefit from hrt less or not at all. Therefore, determination of the apoe genotype can be an important factor in deciding on hrt. There could be other factors as well that depend on your personal health history. The best way to learn about them would be to discuss this with your family doctor. However, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 877-483-2071 for more information on genetic testing. ...Read more
