The results of large clinical trials have led physicians and patients to question the safety of hormone therapy for menopause. In the past, physicians prescribed hormone therapy to improve overall health and prevent cardiac disease, as well as for symptoms of menopause. Combined estrogen/progestogen therapy, but not estrogen alone, increases the risk of breast cancer when used for more than three to five years.

In the medical evaluation of older female patients with sexual problems, you need to assess the woman's psychological state, as well as her physical condition. An important question to ask is whether her level of sexual activity is satisfactory to her. Women's early sexual experiences, in some cases including childhood sexual abuse, impact greatly on their sexuality in later life. When sexual problems are related to the menopause, customized hormone replacement therapy is the treatment of choice.
