topical synthetic estrogen is commonly used to treat symptoms of menopause,
such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.Estrogen in this form has been linked to endometrial cancer.A new report from Kaiser Permanente in Santa
Clara, California shows if the estrogen is given in lower doses vaginally,
there is no increased risk for cancer.I
would suggest that adding some natural progesterone and using bio-identical
hormones are even safer.This is good
news for women who continue to suffer from such symptoms.
