Dr. Sitruk-Ware explains if menopausal women taking estrogen and progesterone hormones are sexier.
I mentioned the role of estrogen on skin, on hair, on body shape and it’s true that the feminine hormones are helping maintaining the elasticity of the skin, the re-growth of hair and decrease slightly, it’s not that easy, but decrease slightly the abdominal adiposity, and therefore keep the image of a woman in a better stage. Also, the women would have more assertiveness, feel more comfortable, less depressed, and this gives them more drive and more confidence in themselves and therefore have them to be more attractive just because they are more confident in their body image.
