The use of hormone replacement therapy is highly effective in improving the quality of life of women who may be suffering from the symptoms of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy also provides protection from such conditions as colon cancer, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. With such benefits, it’s of little wonder so many women are seeking our hormone replacement clinic in Fort Collins. Here is a short list of other benefits that women will enjoy when receiving hormone replacement therapy.
Studies have concluded that women who undergo hormone replacement will improve their overall mood. Though not fully understood why, it is known that estrogen has a profound effect on the brain and nervous system. The mental effect of estrogen goes well beyond the fact that hot flashes have been diminished. Many women describe the feeling as being reborn or revitalized, and leaves women feeling more alert and able to function better.
One distinct advantage hormone replacement holds is in its ability to improve short-term memory. A study at King’s College Hospital discovered very distinct differences in short-term memory between women before menopause or were on postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy and those post menopausal women who were not.
Low estrogen levels have long been considered a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Premenopausal women have higher levels of the good cholesterol (HDL) and lower levels of the bad cholesterol (LDL). After menopause, these figures flip, HDL’s drop and LDL’s rise.
Lastly, hormone replacement therapy is important in maintaining female sexuality. The absence of estrogen reduces sexuality and the presence of it enhances it.
