Summary
Estrogen was approved as a hormone supplement in the 1940's to treat estrogen withdrawal symptoms in menopausal women. Estrogen production declines in women when ovarian function changes with aging or after surgical removal of the ovaries. This drop in estrogen levels can trigger a vasomotor response resulting in a sensation of flushing and sweating that interferes with function and sleep (hot flashes or flushes). Studies conducted in recent years have identified additional health benefits of postmenopausal estrogen besides symptom management (osteoporosis) as well as potential harms (cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, and cholecystitis). The purpose of this review was to compare the efficacy and adverse effects of different estrogens
