Interview: Cynthia Stuenkel, M.D., Clinical professor of medicine at University of California, San Diego, former president of North American Menopause Society.



In the summer of 2002, researchers terminated a long-term trial of hormone therapy in menopausal women, prompted by the discovery that taking hormones put women at a higher risk of breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. This finding has had a significant impact on the way American women manage their menopausal symptoms. Cynthia Stuenkel, M.D., clinical professor of medicine at University of California, San Diego, and the former president of North American Menopause Society, shares hormone replacement therapy discoveries from the past 10 years and the benefits hormones provide during the menopausal period.
