Another study, more confusion.
Feb. 13, 2006 – In recent years many women stopped taking hormones for menopause after a report linked them to heart disease. Now researchers have found that estrogen might not be as bad as we thought — especially for younger women.
The new findings suggest a possible estrogen benefit for women in their 50s, but experts say it’s too early to recommend hormones to help the heart.
My recommendation: Talk with your health care provider, weigh all the pro’s and con’s and then make a careful decision based on your individual preferences, risk and health status.
