Hormone replacement therapy and wellbeing in menopausal women

Righetti G., Favaro P., Berzacola R., Blaas G. F.


Background and aims. The authors performed a retrospective analysis of 682 patients attending the Menopause Centre from 1994 to today. These patients were referred for a wide variety of symptoms occurring in premenopause and menopause.
Methods. All patients initially underwent general screening which was followed by appropriate therapy on the basis of objective examination, blood chemical and instrumental tests, and the subjective clinical situation.
Results and conclusions. It was found that the most frequently used treatment was sequential or combined oestroprogestin replacement treatment (63%), with tibolone in 9% of cases and veralipride in 5%. The best results from the point of view of the improved wellbeing of the woman were obtained using HRT and tibolone.
