Timely menopause and oestrogen therapy

Question : I have been a thin person all the time. I am now 51 years old. My menses stopped just a few months ago. My company doctor keeps telling me that I should take oestrogen hormone treatment. If I don't, it seems, I can die of heart attack. Is it true ? Some of my friends, who have already started on the oestrogen therapy after their menopause, are having a lot of problems. Therefore, I am scared to start on it. Do you think I will get heart attack if I don't take oestrogen hormone medications ? My mother is still alive and healthy, and she is 72 now. She says she never took anything of this kind, and she never had any problem after her menopause, which she developed at her 50th age. What should I do ? I am totally confused and worried.

Answer : IF you have been a thin person all the time, and if you menopaused only at 51, without any further verification I can tell you that you are a very healthy person by all standards. There is no way you are going to get weakening of your bones -- otherwise called osteoporosis.

For certain, you must have been drinking about 8 glasses of water and urinating most of it all the time. Further, you must have had a satisfactory husband and wife relationship all these years. That is why you had your menopause this late. It is very nice to be so.

A person of your background cannot have accumulated calcium to any significant extent. Therefore, your menopause would have been very smooth without any pain, tension or distress. That is enough proof that you will not require any oestrogen hormone treatment. Please do not opt for that.

If you are going to take the hormone therapy, there is a greater chance of getting endometrial ( ie, uterus lining ) and breast cancers. Without the oestrogen therapy, you will not develop any heart attack. You can relax and live with peace of mind. The next time you are going to meet your doctor, you can verify with him on the side effects.
