In brief: Estrogen2use or not
Estrogens are like any other med.
They have side effects some good, some bad. If your family history is strong for cardiac or osteoporosis estrogen is a good option to keep you healthy. If you have a family history of breast cancer or a personal history of blood clots it would be better to pass on the estrogen use. Discuss all of this with your md and make an informed decision for you :).

In brief: NIH, Johns Hopkins,
Studies raised concerns about complications from estrogen supplements in older patients, as seems enhanced stroke and heart attack risks, and even increased incidence of alzheimer's.
Estradiol may or may not be an exception. Best to be safe.
