In brief: Yes

The risks and benefits of such therapy must be evaluated on a case by case basis by an experienced physician.
Hormone replacement is a general term and may include a number of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, hgh, dhea, pregnenolone, oxytocin, melatonin, thyroid, cortisol. The key is effective and safe treatment. This requires ongoing medically supervised treatment.

In brief: Yes!

Over a decade ago, women's health initiative turned hormone replacement on its ear.
Initially, we told everyone to throw the baby out w/bath water. Now, a decade later, we're beginning to think that hrt is only bad if you start it 5-10yrs post-menopause when you have no good reason (if you're asymptomatic, you don't need it) & just want to protect "something". Whi shows there's no prevention.
