The Sexy Years: A Gynecologist's Perspective

I have been prescribing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to my patients for the past seven years with great success. These hormones,which Suzanne Sommers very nicely has brought back to the public since the Women's Health Initiative Study of 2002 showed that synthetic hormone therapy is more harmful than good, have been studied for over twenty years. Although I agree with Ms. Sommers that women can regain their vitality, sex drive and youth with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, she does not stress the contraindications to bio-identical hrt, namely a recent history of breast cancer (rumors have it that Ms. Sommer's breast cancer has recurred in recent months), stroke, heart disease and a strong family history of a blood clotting disorder. I have also found that the bio-identical hrt that Dr. Willey prescribes to Ms. Sommers is way too high of a dose, particularly because she has a history of breast cancer. Similarly, Ms. Sommers claims that women should reinstate their menstrual cycles on bio-identical hrt. This is absolutely incorrect! Any woman who bleeds on hormone replacement therapy needs a work-up for endometrial hyperplasia (overgrowth of the uterine lining) or worse, endometrial cancer. Kudos to Ms. Sommers for allowing women to restart the hormone therapy which they were told to abruptly discontinue in 2002. She is helping millions of women feel better about their menopausal years.

What a role model (insert sarcasm here)

Has anyone taken a good look at Suzanne Somers' face recently?? No, scratch that, all it takes is a quick glance. The woman is a freak! Why am I going to take beauty advice from someone who deformed herself with plastic surgery?? She was beautiful even as recently as 5 ...
Has anyone taken a good look at Suzanne Somers' face recently?? No, scratch that, all it takes is a quick glance. The woman is a freak! Why am I going to take beauty advice from someone who deformed herself with plastic surgery?? She was beautiful even as recently as 5 years ago, but now all I see is another washed-up celebrity trying to regain her glory years through cosmetic procedures. It's a shame, really.

    Wondering?

    I'm wondering about the hormones she is taking----does she know where her cancers came from? The hormones or something else? Each one of us has to do what we feel is right for our bodies---and she is but does she know for sure that her bioidentical hormones didn't cause her cancers? Something to think about before you buy her BOOK!
