In brief: For the same as men.
More things to be concerned about: family, children and perhaps grandchildren, the economy, society in general.
Then homrone changes will occur, and in women hrt will not give a female the Estradiol levels of a 30 year old. As we age, we accumalate other baggade. Wake up to urinate, sleep less in general, etc. We exercise less. Complex question with many facets.
