3 Benefits of Estrogen Therapy
Unfortunately, the term “estrogen therapy” has been linked with health risks, but it is important to note that the major risks associated with estrogen therapy were much different based on age. In addition synthetic estrogen was used, and used without progesterone.
AB Hormone Therapy does not use synthetic hormones. Our bioidentical hormones are comprised of the same hormones found in the human body.
That being said, women experiencing menopause and perimenopause can benefit from estrogen therapy. For women considering estrogen therapy, here are a few of the many benefits of estrogen therapy:
- For women in their 50s: decreased risk of heart disease and mortality
- Regardless of age, estrogen therapy led to a reduced risk of breast cancer
- An increase in “good” cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL)
There are plenty of health benefits of estrogen therapy for women, but before starting estrogen therapy, it is important to speak with a trained physician. They will be able to accurately diagnose an individual woman’s needs and be able to create a hormone therapy plan that will lead to the most benefit.
