It's a life change that every woman faces. Unfortunately, menopause can lead to serious medical issues such as brittle bones, mood disorders, and sexual dysfunction. This program explains the biological changes that take place in the female body during menopause and assesses the potential of hormone replacement therapy, or HRT. It also examines findings on possible links between HRT and the risk of cancer and heart disease, while outlining alternatives to HRT and other treatment options. Case studies shed light on the human and medical dimensions of menopause. Commentary comes from Dr. Lila Nachtigall of the NYU School of Medicine and Dr. Hugh Taylor of the Yale School of Medicine.
