Atrophy of the vaginal area brings the most patients to my office: “It felt like he was stabbing me, tearing me apart!” The vaginal area doesn’t just become dry, the opening actually narrows and shrinks.

Are Hormones SAFE? What Can We Do?

Are Hormones SAFE? The bad news:  Breast cancer has risen 256% since 1950.  One of the largest studies done to date, the Women’s Health Initiative Study showed that women who took only estrogen had LOWER rates of breast cancer than the placebo group (the group who took no hormones).  And, remarkably this advantage continued [...]

Hormone Deficiency: Mental and Physical Crisis

Ovarian Failure The slender, nervous appearing woman told me she was the CEO of a company and thought maybe she was losing her mind.
