Manuel Neves-e-Castro. Menopause is the onset of a chronic hypoestrogenism

Manuel Neves-e-Castro. During hormone treatments for the relief of the symptoms of postmenopausal women a number of side effects may occur. Some may be due to the wrong choice of the steroids used for treatment or to the route of administration. Menopause is the onset of a chronic hypoestrogenism. The lack of estrogens which follows either a premature oophorectomy or menopause is a cause of risk factors and diseases at several levels, amongst which, due to its importance, is the cardiovascular system.

Menopause: Hormones and Cancer. There is little doubt that quality of life can be substantially improved by hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Evidence has also accumulated concerning the effects of estrogen in the primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis.

Learn how hormone therapy (HT) during menopause can affect a woman's risk of getting certain cancers. For decades, women have used hormone therapy to ease symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and sweating. This is called menopausal hormone therapy, and you may see it abbreviated as HT or MHT. You may also hear it described as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), postmenopausal hormone therapy (PHT), or postmenopausal hormones (PMH).

Menopause - Barry G. Wren. This book has been written for women, to explain the menopause and the influence of the ovary and its hormones on a woman’s body and health. It is a guide to help them make choices for their future health and life potential. This is not a book that needs to be read from beginning to end, nor is it a book of hard science. It is a book written to explain the history, biology, scientific studies and treatments for the menopause, a time in a woman’s life that has until now, been a mystery and often a misery for many.

Menopausal hormone therapy once seemed the answer for many of the conditions women face as they age. It was thought that hormone therapy could ward off heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer, while improving women’s quality of life.

A woman's menopause is part of her aging process, the beginning of a journey of personal change and growth. However, this new stage of life and how to deal with the emotional and physical changes of it does not come with a road map.

There is little doubt that quality of life can be substantially improved by hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Evidence has also accumulated concerning the effects of estrogen in the primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis. However, recent studies have cast some doubts about the effectiveness of HRT in the secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases as well as highlighting the possibility of undesirable effects in long-term use. A comprehensive clinical reference, Menopause: Hormones and Cancer examines the issues involved in the use of HRT. It presents new information on steroid receptors, estrogens and estrogen therapy, oral contraception, hormone therapies for ovarian cancer, progesterone therapy, endometrial cancer, phytoestrogens, hormone replacement therapy, estrogen receptors, neurosteroids, prophylactic oophorectomy and estrogen or testosterone implants, and the relationship between sex steroid therapy and colon cancer. The use of HRT is still relatively new and must be studied for many years before the alleged beneficial preventive effects can be seen and understood. In addition, long-term treatment, other than having the desired positive effects, also has some possible undesirable side effects that require further study. In Menopause: Hormones and Cancer top experts in the field focus on understanding the cardiovascular benefits of HRT and the long-term risks.
