Do you want to have your periods back? Yes? No? Most of the women say no. And it is understandable: who wants to have this trouble again. If you decide to get bioidentical hormone replacement, you may have it without periods. And everybody loves it: youth is back but no periods, no pregnancy. Another choice is to go back to cycling with periods again. There is no consensus which is better. And I usually recommended my patients BHRT without cycling. Until recently.
2 things changed my mind:
1. With periods the uterus sheds its superficial part, getting rid of the old possibly damaged cells and regrowing new healthy tissue. This may be considered as a natural uterine cancer prevention.
2. The recent animal study from Texas A & M Health Science Center showed, that estrogen as a memory enhancer works only in a cycling state. It makes me think, that estrogen may work better for women’s brain, if they are cycling.
What do you think about it? Please let me know.
