Women with a history or family history of cardiovascular disease may want to seriously consider hormone replacement therapy in order to live longer.
A study done in 2011 showed that recently menopausal women who started HRT were less likely to have cardiovascular problems later in life. This suggests that the earlier that women in their golden years start Female Hormone Replacement Therapy the more rewarding the effects will be and the less likely it is that women will have heart troubles.
According to the April 18th 2011 issue of the Wall Street Journal, women should start HRT in their fifties reduce cardiovascular risks by an average of 45%. The later women wait to start hormone therapy actually increase their risk of cancer and diseases overall.
It is clear that starting female hormone therapy early is beneficial, however there is controversy surrounding the ways to obtain the estrogen. The first way is orally, this way is most popular as it was the first one to be used. This has been shown to cause problems like an increase in triglyceride levels, C-Reactive protein and prohypertensive and pro-thrombotic factors that are the burdens of portal absorption and first-pass liver impact. On top of that, Dr. Joseph Ragaz of the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia at Vancouver, Canada, showed in a presentation at the 33rd annual Breast Cancer Symposium at San Antonio, Texas in 2010, that self- produced or endogenous estrogen can be carcinogenic for women who are going through HRT, while exogenous or administered estrogen has protective qualities.
This paves the way for the Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapy. This method is where doctors administer the man made hormone Transdermally or Intravaginally, which are the prefered methods.
