Is there another single topic more important to women’s quality of life and longevity?

And by single topic I mean other than the importance of the whole cycle’s impact on women beginning in girlhood.

Excellent work ladies!

I am 60. I started menopause at 51. At 57 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis and have been taking alendronate for 3 years. I want to stop taking it. Would starting hrt now be beneficial for my bone health?

Hi Doctor?

I could not take hormones because of very high

blood pressure. I never had menopause symptoms. I have hot spells now at 70. Anything to be concerned about? My family has cancers.

I thought this podcast was great! Very informative. I just wish you had touched on questions we should ask our GYN so we know we are the right track to having correct care. I myself have seen in my GYN steering me towards her thoughts of HRT not answering my questions or concerns. I don’t want to use the term dismiss but downplaying my symptoms. Telling me things like carbs are not your friend. I will take the information I heard today and clearly discuss it with her. Thank you.

Thank you! The article is so well done. I am a nurse and was working for an OB/GYN in the 90s when the WHI study came out on hormone replacement therapy. It was really sad to see how it was presented and the fear that it caused in women this resulting in them abruptly stopping their hormone replacement therapy. There were a lot of miserable women that did not have to suffer through that.
