If you are a woman in perimenopause (you’d be around your mid 40s), to 10 years post menopause (i.e. it’s been a maximum of 10 years since your last period), I implore you to read this article. It’s a long article, but it should take you only a short time to read. And, I promise it can help you maintain your health: Your HEART health, your BRAIN health, your BONE health, your SEXUAL health, and much, much more.
National Women’s Health Week begins Sunday, all the more reason to read it!
The content of this article is not based on my opinion; it is based on scientific evidence and on conversations with leading (and I mean leading) women’s health doctors in the US. I don’t mean OBGYNS who do yearly pap smears, examine your breasts, and send you on your merry way.
I mean doctors who understand exactly what happens to our bodies, from the moment we enter perimenopause (when our estrogen begins to diminish), through menopause, until we take our last breath. These doctors are completely devoted to helping us through these years, which can be the most physically and emotionally challenging in a woman’s life. They don’t just want to relieve us of hot flashes and decreased libido, which come with decreasing estrogen levels. They want to help us live our best lives possible, by preventing illnesses including heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia, which also can come with lack of estrogen.
These doctors understand the influence of estrogen on 400 functions in a woman’s body. Yes, 400. I kid you not. And they understand why estrogen replacement therapy is critical to our health once our bodies stop making this queen of hormones.
