In brief: In women

When i was on the faculty of a medical school, i used to teach that women that did not take hormone replacement had a higher risk of cardiovascular disease than men at the same age.
I think it needs to be started early and continued for the cardiovascular protective effect. Just my opinion. Many will disagree with me. But this statement is based on the hers study going on for many years.

In brief: Not reccomended

The risk of hormone therapy does not outweigh risks as it relates to heart disease.
